Paul Pogba Brilliantly Trolls Jose Mourinho After His Sacking From Manchester United

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has seemingly trolled Jose Mourinho just moments after it was announced the Portuguese boss had been sacked by the club.

In a post that has now been deleted by the French star, Pogba can be seen giving a cheeky smirk to the camera, with the caption: "Caption this."

Known to be extremely active on social media, it could be that this is just an unfortunately timed post, however his rocky relationship with the ex-United boss has been well-documented, so it wouldn't be a surprise if he was taking one last swipe at his former manager.

The ex-Juventus player has fallen out of favour in recent weeks and was even left on the bench during United's recent 3-1 defeat to bitter rivals Liverpool.

United legend Gary Neville was less than impressed with Pogba's sly dig.

In a post to Twitter, he wrote: ""Caption this" You do one as well!"

Neville wasn't alone in his ciriticism of Pogba after outspoken Arsenal fan Piers Morgan backed his pal Mourinho and labelled the Frenchman a 'dickhead'.

In a post on Twitter he said: "OK Paul, here's my caption: 'Smug, toxic, under-performing, childish £100 million d*ckhead uses worst possible moment to be a smart-arse'."

The Instagram post came shortly after the Manchester United board announced Jose Mourinho had been sacked.

The statement read: "Manchester United has announced that Jose Mourinho has left the Club.

"We would like to thank him for his work during his time at Manchester United and wish him success in the future.

"A new caretaker manager will be appointed until the end of the current season, while the club conducts a thorough recruitment process for a new, full-time manager."

Sources suggest former United player Michael Carrick will take the reins as caretaker manager, this week.

Neville has told Sky Sports he believes Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino should be the next boss.
