EPL: Juventus speak out Pogba's future at Manchester United

Although the policy established by Sir Alex Ferguson requiring non-playing members of the squad to turn up in official club wear has been relaxed, players are still expected to dress conservatively and this is another area in which staff feel Pogba is setting a bad example.

His very public falling out with record signing Pogba took another ugly twist on Wednesday as footage from training at Carrington showed the pair starting the day with a very frosty exchange.

Those were the exact words Jose Mourinho used as he gave Paul Pogba a dressing down in front of his Manchester United teammates earlier this week.

It's also understood Rashford was one of the players on the receiving end of Mourinho's criticism during a recent team meeting.

According to reports, Mourinho can be heard saying "get out" to a confused looking Frenchman and it appears it was all down to an Instagram post.

The Brazil was seen laughing and joking with Pogba during United's Carabao Cup match against Derby County.

The post emerged at 10.28pm, minutes after Frank Lampard's Rams had dumped United out of the cup at the third round on penalties.

Mourinho confirmed on Tuesday night that Pogba would no longer skipper United in the absence of club captain Antonio Valencia after his calls for the team to "attack, attack, attack".

"You're not a captain, you will never be a captain".

Pogba had criticised the tactical approach of the coach in the game against Wolves that ended with a 1-1 draw.

The coach would explain the reasons for this decision in a subsequent press conference. "We've see what Pogba is as a player".

That's Old Trafford. We are here to attack, ' he said.

'When we play like this it's easier for us'.

With the way things are now, Pogba's relationship with Mourinho is irreparable as the manager is set to re-establish control over the rest of the squad before it is too late.
