All is not well at Manchester United after video footage emerged of a heated conversation between star midfielder Paul Pogba and manager Jose Mourinho. The video has been the talk of the town and fans are breaking their heads to decipher as to what happened between the two.

In a video captured by Sky Sports, it showed the French midfielder coming out for training and greeting members of the coaching staff, but when he stopped by Jose Mourinho, Pogba was dropped dead after the pair began an awkard exchange which lasted for two minutes.

If reports are to believed, Jose Mourinho was left annoyed by Paul Pogba's Instagram story after their Carabao Cup loss against Derby County. The instagam post in question, has been deleted by the Frenchman, but it showed him messing around with team-mates Luke Shaw and Andreas Perreria in the stands, with the three not featuring in the squad for the Carabao Cup fixture. 

However, the post seemed to be harmless, but the Portuguese manager felt otherwise. Upon closer inspection of the awkward training clip, it is revealed that Jose Mourinho was seen asking one of the Red Devils' staff members wether the post was up when United were losing or after the game.

While some fans have pointed out that, Jose Mourinho can he heard saying "Paul, get out." and "take Paul home"  between 0:25 and 0:29 seconds of the clip. Incidentally, this alteration comes a day after Mourinho had stripped Pogba from captaincy duties for the rest of the season. 

Though, Mourinho has denied allegations of any fallout between the two, insisting the decision of selecting or dropping a captain was solely up to him. To fuel more speculation, the French midfielder, who has courted controversy, following his frosty chat with Mourinho took to Instagram by posting a picture of himself in his car, along with a 'crazy face' emoji.

Meanwhile, it's confirmed that Manchester United aren't the force they were under Alex Ferguson's tutelage. Gone are the days, where they would beat teams left and right, but now, under Jose Mourinho, the Red Devils look like a mid-table team, which is capable of only producing once in every two or three matches.
