EPL: Manchester United’s senior players ‘angry’ with Mourinho

Jose Mourinho has left several of Manchester United’s senior players “angry and frustrated” with his man-management this season, with sources telling ESPN FC his decision to strip Paul Pogba of the vice-captaincy is merely the latest episode that has bemused many within the dressing room.
As revealed by ESPN FC, Mourinho told Pogba of his decision on Tuesday, just a day after the £89.3 million midfielder had spoken out to demand that United deploy more adventurous, attacking tactics at Old Trafford.
Pogba was absent from the team as United were eliminated from the Carabao Cup by Championship outfit Derby County on Tuesday night. Mourinho’s post-match comments about his team “being in trouble” when defenders Phil Jones and Eric Bailly were left to take spot-kicks in the penalty shootout have also gone down badly, with sources telling ESPN FC the remarks were another example of the Portuguese’s negative and critical approach with his players.
