United Cup exit adds to Mourinho woe after Pogba rift

Carabao Cup: Derby County dump Manchester United out, Man City hammer Oxford

Mourinho broke the bombshell news to his stunned squad at United's Carrington training ground after reacting furiously to Pogba's criticism of the team's tactics at Old Trafford in the wake of last Saturday's 1-1 draw against Wolves. Although Mourinho said there was "no fallout, no problems at all", the decision came after Pogba appeared to criticize United's style of play in a weekend draw with Wolverhampton when he called on the team to attack more.

Jose Mourinho feared the worst when Phil Jones stepped up to take a spot-kick in Manchester United's penalty shootout defeat to Derby in the Carabao Cup. "That was our mistake".

According to reports, Mourinho feels that Pogba hasn't acted as a captain should and put the club first.

Having become the first British club to break the half-billion mark in 2016, revenues have continued to grow at Old Trafford. That's my way of thinking - we should move better, we should move more, yeah.

"The players were happy with that decision and the reasons behind the manager's decision", the source added.
"And when we get past the sixth penalty I know we're in trouble with Bailly and Jones".


"Mourinho's message to the United squad, delivered at Carrington today, was created to underline his authority and remind the players that he is in charge", added The Times report. I wanted to bring a team who could really compete.

United had taken the lead against Derby in the third minute with a well-placed shot from Juan Mata after Anthony Martial had burst down the left flank.

An early Cup exit to Championship Derby, managed by one of Mourinho's former pupils at Chelsea Frank Lampard, intensifies the pressure on the Portuguese.

"It shows you one of the poor sides of modern day football, which is the power of the players to such an extent now that they don't care what they are saying and you can't control them".

There will be, it seems fair to say, quite a lot of hoopla between Lampard and Mourinho before and after the match.
