José Mourinho Texts Manchester United Officials To Say He's 'Tried Everything' With Paul Pogba
José Mourinho and Paul Pogba's relationship has only been one of the many problems that Manchester United fans have had the unfortunate pleasure to watch this season.
Okay, there have been moments when the two have been able to repair the cracks, but it seems that their relationship might be well and truly buried after the United manager's most recent actions.
According to the Independent, the former Real Madrid and Chelsea boss has texted club officials to say that he has lost all hope in fixing his problems with the World Cup-winning Frenchman.
"Mourinho is also now said to be at a loss as to how to deal with the French international and get the better of him, and actually texted club officials to complain that he has tried everything to no avail, from the conciliatory to the hardline," Miguel Delaney wrote.
It follows on from reports that the Special One called the former Juventus star a "virus" in front of his United teammates.
"You don't play. You don't respect players and supporters. And you kill the mentality of the good honest people around you," Mourinho reportedly added (via the Daily Record).
