It looks like the relation between Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba has hit the rock-bottom. That the Manchester United manager and midfielder are not on amicable terms is not a secret anymore. And a recent footage showing Pogba giving Mourinho a stare in the training ground is enough to prove that the relationship is deteriorating with each passing day.
On Tuesday, Mourinho punished Pogba by stripping him of his vice-captaincy following his outburst in the 1-1 draw at home to Wolves. The tension at the club further elevated following the dismal Carabao Cup defeat to Derby, in which the 25-year-old watched from the stands.
And on Wednesday, Pogba and Mourinho showed that their relationship is in turmoil. In the video, Pogba could be seen running over to the management team and shakes hands with Michael Carrick. He then approached Mourinho and a United press officer who he also shakes hands with.
But the 55-year-old gave the World Cup-winner the cold shoulder and instead muttered something in his direction. And Pogba was having none of it as he gave his manager a long cold stare.
The pair were then seen exchanging words in a heated conversation before the manager called over the club press officer. Allen then spoke both the men before Pogba marched off nodding his head.
JUST IN! ?

The France international, meanwhile, is heavily linked with a move to Barcelona. And the way things are turning out at the club, it would not be a surprise if he pushes his way out of Old Trafford this winter.
The latest defeat, nonetheless, has further deepened crisis at the club. Just three wins in their opening six matches has already left them 18 points behind rivals Liverpool.
