Lampard reveals what Mourinho said to him just moments before Cup win

It was therefore a surprise when Pogba was handed the captain's armband for the opening-weekend 2-1 win over Leicester City as a stand-in for regular skipper Antonio Valencia.

Pogba has widely been criticised for failing to produce consistent performances under Mourinho at Old Trafford, but he was in fine form as he helped France to win the World Cup in Russian Federation this summer.

But it is a major scalp for Lampard, who is in his first season as a coach after spending most of his playing career at Chelsea, where Mourinho had two spells as manager.

Sky Sports seem to think it is to do with a post that Pogba made on his Instagram page last night, although the only recent post was a video of him and some fellow Manchester United teammates watching their game against Derby County.

The Portuguese said there would be "no fall-out at all, no problem at all".

Derby scored 8 penalties while Manchester United could only manage 7.

The often-abrasive Mourinho has a history of falling out with high-profile players.

The 25 year old midfielder had earlier called for his team to adopt a more attacking approach at Old Trafford.

Pogba, with a look of indignation on his face, begins to walk away as Mourinho, who appears relatively calm, continues the verbals.


Manchester United have slapped a £200 million price tag on the 2018 World Cup victor, although it remains to be seen if Barcelona would be willing to part with a club record transfer fee.

"In modern football, players are very powerful, they are the stars of the show".

Agent Mino Raiola tried to engineer a move to the Nou Camp, but Carragher feels the La Liga champions would be foolish to pursue Pogba.

Having scored two and set up the other in the 3-0 victory at Young Boys, the France global under-performed on his return to Premier League action and was dispossessed in the move that led to Joao Moutinho's equaliser.

Whether or not that was a barb aimed at Pogba, sections of United's fans have been intensely frustrated with the midfielder's inconsistent performances for the club.

Fresh from his first two goals for the club at Cardiff on Saturday, Riyad Mahrez then thrashed home a second on the counter-attack 12 minutes from time.

"And bad results and bad performances, they make you look more exhausted, more upset, more ugly, more everything". But, with the Barcelona target still having three years left on his current deal, Manchester United hold the aces as far as his valuation is concerned.

"We learn from history that we do not learn from history".
