Soon-to-be ex-Manchester United star Paul Pogba has provided an insight into the key factors behind his public fallout with one-time head coach Jose Mourinho.
It has of course long been common knowledge that the coming weeks are set to prove French international Pogba’s last on the books of United.
This comes with the gifted midfielder’s contract due to expire at the end of the month, after the two parties failed to reach an agreement on the terms of a new deal through next season and beyond.
Pogba, in turn, is primed to take his talents back to Italy, linking up with Serie A giants Juventus as a free agent for the 2nd time in his career.

And, evidently, the 29-year-old’s latest departure from Old Trafford is set to come with some altogether considerable bad blood remaining between the two parties.
This past Thursday, a series of quotes attributed to Pogba as part of his new Amazon feature, ‘The Pogmentary’, caused quite the stir across Man United’s fanbase.
This came as the Frenchman confirmed his intention ‘to show Manchester United that they made a mistake’ in allowing him to move on.
And now, as alluded to above, a fresh round of comments on Pogba’s part have seen the midfielder take his place centre stage in the headlines once more.
Providing an insight into his widely publicised fallout with former boss Jose Mourinho, Pogba revealed that the lingering issues between the pair, as far as he is concerned, came about as a result of the actions of the Portuguese tactician.
“It started when I got injured. I said I was going to Miami to do rehabilitation,” Pogba began.
“A paparazzi took a photo of Zulay [Pogba’s wife] and me. Jose sent the picture to Mino [Raiola]. I didn’t like that at all. He said he’s on holiday when we are working like [expletive].
“I told Mourinho are you serious? I’m injured. I train three times a day here. Who do you think I am? It was new to me to have an issue with my coach.”
