- Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba arrived for United training on Thursday
- The Frenchman had a frosty exchange with his boss on Wednesday
- The Portuguese has already stripped Pogba of the club's vice-captaincy role
Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho and French star Paul Pogba met at the club’s training session on Thursday, September 27, 2018, hours after their row at Carrington.
According to a UK Mirror report, ex-Red Devils midfield star Paul Ince has intervened into the issue, stressing that Pogba’s fate is already decided and would likely leave the Old Trafford dwellers in the coming transfer window.
"If this was happening under Sir Alex, he’d have said one thing; ‘He’s going. Get rid of him now.’ Because there’s no chance he’d allow his team to become a joke because of Paul Pogba’s behaviour.
"If you do that, you’re essentially allowing a player to become bigger than the manager and the rest of his team.
"I think his fate is completely sealed and he’ll be gone in January. There’s talk of Mourinho going before him, but I’d be disgraced if Ed Woodward allowed that to happen.
"It’s time for Woodward to step up and back Jose.
"If he tells him that he’s upsetting the dressing room and still not playing at the level he should be, then he needs to back the manager and let him go. Pogba has caused far more trouble than good since returning to Man United,” Ince was quoted as saying.
Interestingly, the pair were caught on camera exchanging hostile words, after Man United's Carabao Cup defeat by Derby.
The Portuguese was angry with Pogba’s activates on Instagram as he followed the proceeding from the stands.
Pogba is now expected to quit in January, with Barcelona and Juventus leading the pack of potential suitors.
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously had reported that Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has informed club boss Jose Mourinho of his intention to join Spanish giants Barcelona.
According to a UK Daily Mail report, the request has now resulted to his removal as one of the club's captain and the Red Devils squad members were informed of the change, hours before they were booted out of the Carabao Cup by Derby County.
The encounter saw Pogba alongside club captain, Antonio Valencia excused from the match, although the France star appeared as a spectator at the stands.
