Jamie Carragher reveals who caused Mourinho’s sack from Man United

Liverpool legend, Jamie Carragher, has blamed Manchester United midfielder, Paul Pogba for the sack of manager, Jose Mourinho.

Mourinho was dismissed by United on Tuesday morning following the club’s poor form this season.

The Portuguese gaffer was sacked after the Red Devils were defeated 3-1 by Liverpool in the Premier League encounter at Anfield.

But, reacting to the sack of Mourinho, Carragher stated that Pogba was responsible, adding that the France international should follow Mourinho out of Old Trafford, branding the 25-year-old as “toxic”.

“His [Pogba’s] poorly-timed social media point – intended or coincidental – symptomatic of the disconnect between the manager and star player,’ Carragher wrote in the Telegraph.

“United have sent a strong message by sacking Mourinho.

They should be equally strong in their attitude to Pogba and sell him if his valuation is met. A club can no more be about one player as it can the manager.

“Pogba may be top class, but he has never shown it in England and there are plenty of elite European clubs performing well without him.

“Toxic personalities are of no use to a club. They destabilise everything.”

Man United will now tackle Cardiff City on Saturday in the Premier League fixture at Old Trafford.
