Derby County send Manchester United out of the EFL Cup

Derby County send Manchester United out of the EFL Cup

Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba's relationship looks to have taken a turn for the worse with numerous outlets including BBC Sport and The Telegraph stating that Jose Mourinho has told the midfielder that he will never captain Manchester United again.

Pogba has captained United three times this season in the absence of Antonio Valencia.

However, the French World Cup winner's latest outspoken comments criticising United's overly negative tactics after a 1-1 draw at home to newly-promoted Wolves on Saturday have provoked a reaction from Mourinho.

United face Championship side Derby County, managed by Frank Lampard, at Old Trafford on Tuesday. 'Keeper David de Gea and left-back Luke Shaw are also omitted from the squad.

Pogba, who hasn't lived up to expectations since his then world record 89-million pound (US$116 million) move from Juventus in 2016, had been angered by Mourinho's remarks in July that he had played much better at the World Cup because he was not surrounded by his entourage.




"I'm just thinking about the matches and this one is a cup match and the rules change", he said.

Mourinho is understood to have made the brutal declaration in front of the rest of Pogba's stunned team-mates before their defeat to Derby. "Man United asked Chile to rest him, and they did, he had a pretty good pre-season and I thought "Ok, he's back", but it's not happening for him".

With the way things have been going, it is not unlikely that both parties will depart Old Trafford in the near future. "In this moment, you don't even have the possibility of, after a draw, playing 30 more minutes - you go straight to a penalty shootout which obviously is a 50-50 situation. I don't blame a player missing in penalties because I knew if it went in the direction".

But Derby threatened throughout and got an equaliser in the second half when on-loan Liverpool winger Harry Wilson scored a brilliant free-kick from distance which completed deceived United goalkeeper Sergio Romero.

Many fans are now calling for Anthony Martial to be given a start in the league, and who can blame them?
