Mourinho In Bust-Up With Two United Players – Reports

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho was reportedly involved in a bust-up with two of his players after their last Premier League match at Newcastle United.

According to the report from popular media outlet The Sun, Mourinho had issues with midfielder Paul Pogba and defender Phil Jones after his team were surprisingly beaten 1-0 by Rafael Benitez’s team.

Frenchman Pogba missed Manchester United’s FA Cup fifth round clash with Huddersfield Town on Saturday with illness and Mourinho was a bit edgy when asked about the midfielder’s sickness before the game, Mourinho snapped: “I don’t know and I honestly don’t care. I will think about him after the match.”

After the game, the Portuguese tactician revealed: “Yesterday he was working normally with us. We prepared for the game and told the players the team. He was in it.

“I was told by the doctor this morning he was not coming.” he added.

Mourinho accused the former Juventus star of being “too casual” and “too careless” following his substitution shortly after Newcastle United winger Matt Ritchie scored the winning goal.

Apart from Pogba, English defender Jones also faced Mourinho’s wrath with both players shocked at being singled out for criticisms from the manager.

A Newcastle insider said: “Mourinho was furious — everybody could hear him shouting at Pogba and Jones.
