It’s been a difficult week for boss Jose Mourinho as United followed up a draw at home to Wolves with a shock Carabao Cup exit at the hands of Derby.
To make matters worse, Mourinho and record-signing Paul Pogba appear to be in the midst of a bust-up.
But the Portuguese coach has stepped in to play down reports of an ongoing feud between the pair.
Speaking at his press conference yesterday, Mourinho said: “I can anticipate more questions by saying that the relation of player (and) manager is good.
“It’s not any more a relation (of) captain or one of the captains and manager. It’s just a relation, player-manager, it’s good.
“Nobody trained better than Paul on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Nobody trained better than him. Some trained as well as him but not better than him, and tomorrow he plays, so end of the story.”
Meanwhile, West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini refused to be drawn on the apparent discord between Pogba and Mourinho.
“It’s very difficult for me to have an opinion when I don’t really know what’s happening inside their club,” he said.
“Some things the media said are happening within their squad, so I don’t feel able to give an opinion about that.”
