Jose Mourinho, Paul Pogba in Man United training-ground spat

Frank Lampard has revealed what his former boss Jose Mourinho said to him just moments before his Derby County side knocked Manchester United out of the Carabao Cup, the Daily Mirror reports.

"The only truth is that I made the decision of Paul not to be the second captain anymore. Just one decision that I don't have to explain".

It's unknown what sparked the argument but Pogba was visibly unhappy at what he was being told by his manager, with some fans suggesting that he also said "Get Paul home!" at the one-minute mark.

Phil Jones' spot-kick was saved by Scott Carson as Derby won 8-7 on penalties after it had finished 2-2 at Old Trafford, with Pogba watching from the stands as his team-mates bowed out to Sky Bet Championship opposition. Pogba plays for himself.

Marouane Fellaini headed United's equaliser deep into stoppage-time to make it 2-2, yet even that couldn't dig Mourinho out of trouble.

"You want me to say we play a phenomenal match?"

These comments by the 2018 World Cup-winning midfielder obviously did not go down too well with Mourinho, who appears to have reacted emphatically.

'People saying Mourinho is causing problems, taking the captaincy off him, but he's not really a captain is he, Pogba, in terms of how he plays, he's letting his agent speak negatively about the club.

The French superstar has declared the team is playing the wrong type of football and Manchester United need to, "attack, attack, attack".
