"He f***ed with the wrong baller": Pogba on Mourinho

In a deplorable gesture unacceptable from any global football star, Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has shown his happiness at Jose Mourinho getting sacked from Manchester United.

The French international was reportedly heard celebrating Mourinho's firing and shouting "He f***ed with the wrong baller" in the club's dressing room.

Why such detestation? How improper was the behavior?

Let's discuss right here.

What did Pogba say after news arrived of Mourinho's sacking?

Sun Sports revealed that Pogba was pretty ecstatic after the news of Mourinho's sacking reached the Carrington training ground.

He reportedly danced around, saying, "He f***ed with the wrong baller".

Pogba's sour relationship with Mourinho is common knowledge.

Earlier when Mourinho had reportedly asked him to emulate Frank Lampard, Pogba had retorted by saying that Lampard did not win a World Cup like him.

Carrick

Michael Carrick came down heavily upon Pogba

Michael Carrick, the United legend who won the Champions League with them in 2008, reportedly came down heavily on Pogba when he learnt about the ugly celebrations the midfielder was carrying on.

Carrick, in a no-nonsense attitude, told Pogba that no one was bigger than the club, and anyone who did not meet the club's expectations would be shown the door without hesitation.

Pogba also tweeted a picture of himself with a smirk on his face asking followers to caption the same immediately after it was revealed that United had fired Mourinho.

However, he deleted the tweet later.

This uncouth behavior angered United legend Gary Neville so much that he responded to the tweet with a picture of his own, and then criticized Pogba on television.

Observation

Such deplorable behavior should not be accepted by top clubs

What Pogba has done is simply deplorable and unforgivable to say the least.

To mock and belittle a former manager just because he had problems with the person is not fitting for a superstar like him.

Pogba should have behaved like a professional and made at least neutral or respectable comments about his former boss.

United should take some action against him for this.
