. . . attacks ‘virus’ Pogba
SOUTHAMPTON. — Jose Mourinho launched a scathing attack on Paul Pogba, calling the Frenchman “a virus” following Manchester United’s 2-2 draw with Southampton on Saturday, it has been claimed.
It is understood the midfielder then bit back at the Red Devils boss in a dressing room row that took place in front of the entire team.
The visitors went behind early on against Southampton, conceding twice in 20 minutes at St Mary’s Stadium.
But the visitors rallied back with goals from Romelu Lukaku and Ander Herrera in a first half that saw four goals.
It seemed as though United would go on to win the game, but their display in the second half was flat and uninspiring.
At one point, cameras were on Mourinho when Pogba lost the ball by attempting a fancy flick. The United boss responded to the sloppy play by throwing his arms in the air and shouting angrily from the dugout.
According to the Daily Record, Mourinho gave the 26-year-old a major dressing down in the away changing room at full-time. —The Mirror.
