Mathias Pogba has insisted Jose Mourinho was the problem for his brother, Paul's poor relationship with the sacked Manchester United boss.

"The problem was Mourinho, period", Mathias, who plays for French Ligue 2 side Tours, told RMC.

Pogba endured a hard relationship with his ex-boss, who was dismissed following a 3-1 defeat to Liverpool in December and replaced by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with the club in sixth place in the Premier League. "In the locker room, outside the locker room.everything". Solskjaer and Ferguson know each other well as the Norwegian played under him for 11 years, accruing many trophies including six Premier League titles and the 1999 Champions League trophy.

"(Paul) does not even calculate that aspect: "you respect him, he will respect you, you trust him, he will produce big performances".

Paul Pogba has scored seven Premier League goals and nine in all competitions for United, who are fifth ahead of their blockbuster trip to Tottenham on Sunday.

The Globes were the first major awards show in the #MeToo era and the downfall of disgraced film producer Harvey Weinstein. The press association typically likes having first crack at series that weren't eligible for the prior Emmys.

But a story in the Mirror on Tuesday has insisted that the players themselves see Solskjaer as the ideal candidate and will give him a glowing reference should Ed Woodward ask the squad for their opinion.

"He has the freedom to make things happen".

"Ole has helped him 100%".

Solskjaer has taken his squad on a pre-arranged warm weather training camp in Dubai, where after having played two games a week since his appointment last month, he is finally able to do some proper training sessions with his squad.
