What Paul Pogba really did in Manchester derby leaving Jose Mourinho FURIOUS

A week later than they would have preferred, Manchester City have been crowned Premier League champions as second-placed Manchester United suffered a shock 1-0 home defeat to bottom club West Bromwich Albion.

Admitting some of his players were still on the moon celebrating the win over local rivals Manchester City the week earlier. Mourinho said: 'I wanted a better way (in midfield) against a side that was defending in a block'.

Pogba and Jose didn't see eye to eye much this season.

After a man-of-the-match display in the Manchester derby, Mourinho urged Pogba to show more consistency in training and games.

Mourinho questioned his players' mentalities and there's no surprise given that he did all he could do tactically to force a response. "We are not going to do anything insane", Mourinho said.

"I expect you to be consistent in a certain level".

United's owners, the Glazer family, and the Old Trafford hierarchy (led by executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward) know that progress is being made on the pitch and that is why Mourinho was hired to replace Louis van Gaal.

But the owners' patience will not last forever.

The France midfielder has endured a torrid time in recent months, with a number of poor performances casting his future at the club in serious doubt.

In terms of the football, the view among the hierarchy is that winning football is entertaining football so substance, rather than style, is the requirement.

West Brom have drawn one and won the other of their last two games following eight straight losses, with caretaker manager Darren Moore yet to lose since his temporary appointment.

Did the win over Manchester City affect the player's mentality?

Having shone in the comeback 3-2 victory over Manchester City, Paul Pogba failed to reproduce his finest form, being taken off after 58 minutes in Sunday's defeat.

Mourinho made his remarks after yet another hard afternoon for Paul Pogba, United's record signing.

Mourinho said the risk of a red card was partly why Pogba was replaced but stressed the France global was no worse than some of the players who played the full match.

According to the Daily Mail, the Portuguese boss has lost his patience with midfielder Paul Pogba and has chose to put him up for sale once and for all.
