Saha backs Mourinho chastises Pogba for inappropriate comments

A number of off-the-field spats, including a falling out between Mourinho and Paul Pogba, have increased the sense of chaos at the club.

'I was at the game last Saturday and although they beat Newcastle 3-2, it's possibly the worst I've seen Manchester United play in one half of football for a long time.

"During a season, you can have a big match then a smaller match, then one even smaller, then you can lose your focus, you can lose your concentration, then comes a big match again", Mourinho was quoted as saying after watching France triumph in Russian Federation.

The subject of Pogba's reportedly fraught relationship with United boss Jose Mourinho was strictly off the table for the interview at France's worldwide training base.

Liverpool are joint-top of the Premier League after eight games, alongside Manchester City and Chelsea , on 20 points. Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang both scored twice, with Aaron Ramsey grabbing the other.

Allegri, who has previously been linked with Arsenal, took control of the Italian champions in 2014, and has led the club to four straight Serie A titles. "This is my opinion and I would have said that to him, I would say "no, that's not something to say because you are not the manager".

"I think Jose is still someone that I look up to and admire because managers go through tough times", he said. "I think they've got the right man who can handle that sort of situation".

"I couldn't have done it without them".

He said the France captaincy was not one of his main goals.

McGregor also said that "the war goes on" as he seemingly ramps up his campaign to book a rematch bout with Nurmagomedov. It does remain a mystery, however, whether Nurmagomedov will receive the money he was promised from the fight.

Yes, I think there are things that should not be done from the players' side and from the manager and above.

However, speaking ahead of France's friendly fixture against Iceland and Uefa Nations League showdown against Germany, Pogba stated that he does not need captain's armband to be a leader.

"I'm not going to get into it, whether it's (Antoine) Griezmann, Kylian (Mbappe) or Raphael who deserve it much more than me". "You don't have to be captain in order to speak, a leader is not someone who has the armband".
