Gary Neville has told Paul Pogba to follow Jose Mourinho out of Manchester United after the midfielder posted a message on Twitter.
Pogba and Mourinho had a difficult relationship that became particularly strained over the past three to four months with a number of high-profile incidents.
And not long after his dismissal, Pogba posted a photo on Twitter of him with a ambiguous smile along with the words “caption this!”
Little wonder Paul Pogba deleted this. No excuses for him now… pic.twitter.com/z6zUBCaQYK

At best it was badly-timed and at worst it was a wry smile intended to mock Mourinho’s departure from the club.
Neville reacted on Twitter by saying: “‘Caption This’ You do one as well!”
“ Caption This “
You do one as well !

Speaking after Mourinho’s sacking, Neville reckons he can pinpoint the time when the writing was on the wall for the Portuguese boss.
Neville also told Sky Sports how Mauricio Pochettino should be the next United boss after The Times claimed that he was United’s ‘preferred candidate’ in the summer.
