Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho was reportedly involved in furious bust up with Paul Pogba and Phil Jones after last week’s dismal loss to Newcastle.
Insiders at Newcastle revealed how the United chief launched a ‘devastating attack’ on the two stars in the dressing after the 1-0 loss at St James’ Park
Pogba then missed the comfortable 2-0 FA Cup win over Huddersfield with illness – despite Mourinho saying he would play on Friday.
England star Jones also missed the game after he said he was unfit during the week.
A Newcastle insider told The Sun: “Mourinho was furious — everybody could hear him shouting at Pogba and Jones.
“He obviously thinks they should do better but the pressure is getting to them.”
United say that Pogba reported ill on Saturday morning and Mourinho is now hoping that the club’s record signing will recover in time to face Sevilla in the Champions League on Wednesday night.
Mourinho said: “I don’t know how Paul is. I didn’t want to know before the game and now is the time to find out.”
