Revealed: 45% of Manchester United fans back Mourinho over Pogba for next season

Manchester United have not made a strong start to the new season by any stretch of the imagination. They currently find themselves in 10th place in the Premier League, have been knocked out of the EFL Cup by Championship side Derby County and recently slumped to a desperately dull 0-0 against Valencia in a Champions League tie at Old Trafford.

As is to be expected, United manager Jose Mourinho has come under fire in light of these poor results and performances. Equally headline-grabbing has been the Portuguese boss’ seemingly fractured relationship with Paul Pogba.

The French midfielder is the Red Devils’ record signing and star player. However, he has struggled for consistently good form since his big-money return to the club in 2016. Many have attributed the 25-year-old’s difficulties to the way he is managed by Mourinho.

Increasingly it is looking as though the United hierarchy will soon have to back one or the other out of Mourinho or Pogba. So, we asked fans of the club which of the two they would rather see still in situ at Old Trafford next season and just 55% were in favour of the midfielder. See the full results below.
