Pogba's photo with his Juve friend causes a stir in camp.

PAUL POGBA may be set to anger Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho after his antics following their 1-0 Champions League defeat to Juventus last night.
Paul Pogba played as Manchester United were dealt a Champions League blow at Old Trafford, with Juventus leaving England with a crucial three points to their name.

The France international spent four years at the Serie A giants between 2012 and 2016.

But, like many of his United team-mates, the World Cup winner toiled as Paulo Dybala struck to give Massimiliano Allegri’s side all three points and consolidate their place at the top of their Champions League group in the process.

After the game, the Red Devils midfielder chose not to mull over the chastening defeat, like many of his Old Trafford team-mates.

Instead, Pogba has been snapped going into the Juventus dressing room and posing with several of his old team-mates.

The 26-year-old was snapped with Juan Cuadrado, who shared a picture of the duo in the dressing room.

He said: “A victory of character!Come on!!! The food in the #ForzaJuve #UCL Dark @paulpogba.”

The Manchester United midfielder was also seen holding what looked to be a Juventus goody bag.

And Mourinho may not be best-pleased.

The United boss has clashed repeatedly with Pogba in recent months with their feud well-documented.

Pogba has angered his manager by appearing not to be focused on footballing matters.

Mourinho was also angry when he thought Pogba uploaded a video laughing after their Carabao Cup exit to Derby – though the player ultimately uploaded the footage during the match instead.


And he also stripped the France star of the club’s vice-captaincy amid the debacle.

Meanwhile, Pogba has been linked with a move back to Juventus amid his United troubles.

But, speaking before the game, he insisted he was at home at Old Trafford.

“I’d spoken to my brother about it,” Pogba said in a UEFA interview.

“And we said: ‘Can you imagine what it’d be like if we’re drawn in the same group as Juventus?’ That’s the way it’s panned out and it’s really special.

“We’ve all been sending messages about seeing each other again. There are a lot of emotions involved because I began my first season in the professional game and scored my first goal at Juve.

“It’s there that I developed as a player and so I have huge respect for the club. [But] I’ve come back home. I joined the youth academy here. I’m at home here and it will always be that way.

“I grew up with my team-mates and we’ve all been reunited again in the first team, so it’s a beautiful story.

“The career I have had and now, with this return to Manchester, it’s really splendid.”
