What Happened Between Pogba And Mourinho After He Was Substituted vs Bournemouth

Paul Pogba ignoring Jose Mourinho post his substitution in the 2-0 win against Bournemouth will add to further speculation about his rocky relationship with the Portuguese.

Pogba helped Manchester United get the second goal after feeding Romelu Lukaku, who came in as a second half substitute to score the winner.

The Frenchman was replaced by Daley Blind in the 80th minute, and the player, while approaching the bench, avoided any contact with the manager, and did not even shake his hand or show any gesture.

Photos reveal that the former Juventus midfielder shook hands with Rai Fario and Michael Carrick, two of the coaches sitting beside Jose, but chose to ignore the former Real Madrid manager. He then went straight to the tunnel before making a return to the bench.

Earlier, reports stated that the player was involved in a bust-up with Jose during the half-time against rivals City last week. Tempers were said to be flaring between the two individuals.

The France international did change his level in the second half, and his brace helped the Red Devils stage a comeback and win the derby 3-2.

But Pogba’s performance was once again poor against the Baggies, who inflicted the home team with a 1-0 loss at Old Trafford. Pogba lasted 58 minutes in that match.

Real Madrid are said to be monitoring his situation, and are said to be waiting on the wings to lure the ex-Juventus man to Spain. Both individuals will need to grow over from the supposed crack in the relationship, and the only way it can be achieved is with Pogba being consistent.
