Mourinho wants the Manchester United board to back him over Pogba feud

TUTTOSPORT: Paul Pogba has chosen Juventus return

REVEALED: What caused Mourinho, Pogba exchange

That decision came inbetween Pogba allegedly angering members of the club coaching staff by playing loud music on the way to Saturday's Premier League fixture with Wolverhampton Wanderers, and a frosty exchange on the training ground after Mourinho indicated that he was unhappy with an Instagram video which was published on social media during the club's EFL Cup tie with Derby County.

The Man United boss was livid that Pogba, who was dropped for Tuesday's Carabao Cup game with Championship side Derby, uploaded a photo of him laughing with team-mate Andreas Pereira in the stands.

Former United striker Alan Brazil, who played 41 times for the club during the 1980s, took aim at Pogba on his talkSPORT show on Thursday morning.

Pogba initially scowled in disbelief before giving Mourinho a puzzled look as the pair then became embroiled in a heated exchange before the midfielder walked off while forcefully nodding his head.

While his younger brother is linked with a move away from Manchester United amid reports of a training-ground spat with Jose Mourinho, the 28-year-old striker has secured a deal at Tours after a gap in his career.

He said: "Whether it's Jose's fault or Pogba's fault, I don't care".

Barcelona is believed to be Pogba's desired destination should Manchester United sanction his exit in January.

How did Mourinho's previous bust-ups play out?

Speaking in an interview with Sky Sports on Tuesday night, Redknapp said: "There's been an almighty fall out".

'There's an idea that it's one or the other, so if Mourinho goes we'll see a new Pogba.

"My job as a manager is to get the best out of your players, sometimes you get it wrong and you won't get the response that you want but we all face that every single day".
