Pogba Declines Interview To Fuel Rift Rumours

Paul Pogba has added fuel to the fire of his rapidly disintegrating relationship with Jose Mourinho by turning down interviews in the wake of Manchester United’s latest defeat with a four-word reply: “You want me dead?”

A 3-1 loss at West Ham on Saturday means United have taken 10 points from their first seven games of the season, recording their joint worst start to a Premier League season, equalling the beginning of the ill-fated David Moyes era.

Pogba was replaced by Mourinho during the second half at the London Stadium to wrap up a week of controversy involving the pair, who were seemingly involved in a training ground confrontation on Wednesday.

That came after Mourinho’s men were dumped out of the Carabao Cup by Frank Lampard’s Derby County at home and while the Portuguese denied a row with Pogba, he has stripped the France star of the vice-captaincy.

After a 2-1 home win against Leicester City on the first weekend of the season, Pogba indicated in post-match interviews that he could not speak his mind for fear of being fined by the club.
