READ: Mourinho and Pogba in incredible bust-up
The Sun reported that the two had been involved in an angry exchange where Mourinho had ordered Pogba to hand in a transfer request if he wanted to leave the club "again".
The publication went on to claim that Pogba had informed Mourinho to in future refer to his agent regarding formal communication between the two parties.
Sky Sports reported that a Man United official and "angry and incensed" and went on to dismiss claims of a training ground bust-up between the two as false.
"They are angry, they're incensed, they're telling me there was no bust up between Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba," said Sky reporter James Cooper. "The reports of this are absolute nonsense. The relationship between the two people is good."
After a 2-1 win over Leicester City, Pogba told TV cameras that
there were "things I can say and there are things that I cannot say,
otherwise I will get fined".
Mourinho was apparently upset by
Pogba’s comments after he had made the 25-year old captain for the match
and praised his performance.
