Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho furious with Paul Pogba in training ground

ose Mourinho told Paul Pogba ‘I’m the boss’ in a furious training-ground showdown.
The Manchester United boss asked Pogbato “have a look at the sign on the door on the way out” after heated talks in his Carrington office.
Pogba had spoken to the Special One about the players’ unhappiness over tactics and  his own  issues with the position he was being played in.
The meeting ended with Mourinho telling the club’s £89million record signing to look at the sign saying  “manager” on his door  in case he was in any doubt who  the power belongs to at Old Trafford.
Pogba, 24, has been subbed twice and missing from the starting line-up three times in the last five games.
One of those absences from the side came in last Saturday’s 2-0 FA Cup win at Huddersfield, with Pogba claiming he felt ill.
The Frenchman was then left out  for United’s  goalless draw away to Sevilla on Wednesday.
Pogba started on the bench for  the Champions League last-16 first leg in Spain but came on after 17 minutes with Ander Herrera injured.
The player believes he is being made a scapegoat for the team’s recent poor form and is also unhappy at being called out in training in front of the other players.
Pogba’s camp are  tentatively looking at other options in case the problems between player and manager escalate still further.
SunSport revealed last week how Real Madrid remain very interested in the France international.

They lost out to United in the battle to sign him when he left Juventus in summer  2016.
