Manchester United expects record revenues despite on-field problems

Man Utd news Jose Mourinho

With the build-up to Tuesday's Carabao Cup match dominated by the talk surrounding Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba's deteriorating relationship, United were hoping for a respite on the pitch against Derby County.

After Mourinho's reported shouting at Paul Pogba after a draw against Wolves in the last weekend, their relations seem have gone beyond reconciliation and hence the stripping of vice-captaincy has certainly become the last flashpoint between them. I think Jose Mourinho is a manager who wanted to win games, he has his style, of course he does, but it will be a style to get the best out of players to win a game.

Old Trafford clearly isn't big enough for the both of them and it's hard to imagine that both of them will still be at the club next season.

Then came Tuesday's penalty-kick ouster vs. Derby County-for which Pogba was a spectator-and Wednesday's subsquent training session.

The 25-year-old infuriated Mourinho after the Wolves match when he insisted United should "attack, attack, attack" in what was perceived as a dig at the manager's conservative tactics.

" The only truth is that I made the decision that Paul will not be a second (vice) captain anymore."

Mourinho made Pogba the most expensive player in history when he signed him from Juventus for £89.3million in 2016, but his form over two completed seasons since returning to Old Trafford has been patchy.




The France worldwide said United should "attack, attack, attack" when playing at Old Trafford in a none too disguised criticism of Mourinho's approach.

"I am the manager I make these decisions, no fall out at all, no problem at all".

'There's a power play going on here, ' said Carragher on Sky Sports.

As you can see, Mourinho said something which clearly left Pogba very unhappy.

"We had situations to kill it, we didn't and at halftime, I repeated basically the same words I repeated in the last match that their dressing room was for sure a dressing room with belief because the result was open and they were playing quite well".

"I don't think you are correct when you say I'm criticising".

English soccer club Manchester United forecast record revenue for 2018-19, despite having dropped off the early pace in the new Premier League season.
