  • Paul Pogba of Manchester United has had a very public falling out with manager Jose Mourinho

"He's proven it for so long, you know?"

He told Belgian newspaper HLN: 'The last season under Mourinho was not pleasant anymore, we didn't win, we got into a sort of routine, training-training without having fun, it was better for all parties that the collaboration came to an end.

Would you like to see Ibrahimovic back at United?

And according to a report from Mundo Deportivo, there's a very good reason why nothing likely will. "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".

"For me, the problem is the directors in the office because they chose to take him. It's hard to set out on a kind of given pathway", added the ex-England global.

'Then in the second half they played with the most freedom they've shown for a long time, but at 2-0 down it's easy to play well because it seems you've lost the game.

"But, of course, now, just like when I set out to be a footballer when I was a bit younger and you're on that first step of the ladder, that's the target and you try to be as good as you can be".

But the one common factor that has been involved in each and every one of these issues, has been the team's manager, Jose Mourinho.

"I am there to do what he wants me to do, so it's getting the balance right".

While several fans, players, and even football pundits have opined that the Old Trafford club must part ways with the underperforming manager, a few notable figures, such as club legend Wayne Rooney and ex-boss David Moyes, have spoken in support of Mourinho. "At this level, to make these mistakes is unbelievable".

Player and manager fell out quite spectacularly in their third season together at Stamford Bridge, with Hazard enduring the worst campaign of his career and Mourinho being axed midway through the season.
