Former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is reportedly worried that the club is being brought under crisis by Jose Mourinho.
Old Trafford has been in the eye of a storm this week, with the frustrating draw at home to Wolves followed by a Carabao Cup exit to Derby and more questions around the future of some key squad members.
Mourinho took the vice-captaincy off Pogba in the build-up to Tuesday’s game and the following morning remarkable footage emerged of a heated training-ground conversation between the pair.
The Portuguese would not explain what was said in the conversation that made ripples around the footballing world
Mourinho was dismissive when it was put to him that he did not need to speak with Pogba in front of the cameras, just as he was when asked if it was disruptive.
Meanwhile, the Daily Mirror now claims that Ferguson has told his close friends that he is ‘worried’ that United are in danger of becoming a ‘circus act’.
Mourinho has had a week of turmoil, with a draw against Wolves followed up by defeats to Derby and West Ham.
The club was apparently forced to deny rumours that they head reached out to Zinedine Zidane.
“Senior sources at Manchester United have dismissed as “nonsense” claims the club have approached Zinedine Zidane over the prospect of replacing Jose Mourinho as the pressure intensifies on the manager,” an excerpt read in the Telegraph.
