In his Amazon documentary Pogmentary, Paul Pogba touched upon the moment when his relationship with Jose Mourinho soured. As it turns out, it dates back to the end of 2017 when the then-Man United midfielder was recovering from a thigh issue.
"It all started when I got injured," Pogba says.
"I decided to go to Miami for rehab and left. In Miami a paparazzo photographed me with my wife Zulay.
"Mourinho sent the photo to Raiola. 'I didn't like it at all... at all. I said to Mou, 'Are you serious? I am injured, but I come here to train three times a day.
"Who do you think I am? I'm not like other players."
That was the beginning of the rupture between Pogba and Mourinho who ended up stripping the midfielder of the vice-captaincy that he gave to the player in the first place.
They were filmed having arguments on the training pitch, with Mourinho subsequently describing Pogba as a 'virus'.
"It was a new thing for me. I'm not used to having problems with my coach," Pogba added.
"If I were to meet Mourinho tomorrow I would joke with him. I don't hold a grudge."
Pogba looks set to join Juventus as a free agent which means he would face Mourinho in charge of Roma in Serie A.
