The pair were filmed having a frosty exchange in a training session at Carrington on Wednesday after Pogba missed the Red Devils’ defeat by Derby County in the League Cup.
Pogba and Mourinho’s relationship appears to have hit breaking point, with the Red Devils boss confirming this week that the midfielder had been removed as the club’s vice-captain.
There was plenty of speculation about Pogba’s situation at Manchester United during the summer transfer window and it seems as though the January window will bring about fresh talk about his future.
And former Liverpool FC defender Carragher has now offered his take on the situation between the pair at Manchester United.
Speaking in an interview with Sky Sports, Carragher said: “There’s a power-play here going on, and I think Jose Mourinho is well aware there’s cameras there.
“If you’re asking me, because it looks like Mourinho or Pogba, it’s Jose Mourinho. They’ve both been there the same amount of time. I think Jose Mourinho has done more than Pogba in that time.
“Another question is, should he be getting more out of a £90m player? In terms of Paul Pogba, I don’t know if he’s worth the hassle for what he gives on the pitch.
“There’s an idea that there’s one or the other. So if Mourinho goes, you’ll see a new Paul Pogba. You won’t, I can assure Man Utd fans, you won’t.
“Nobody plays for two years and all of a sudden there’s a change of manager and you’re a new player.”
Manchester United will return to Premier League action on Saturday lunchtime when they travel to West Ham United in the top flight.
Mourinho has been tasked with steering the Red Devils towards a Premier League title challenge after they finished in second place and without a trophy last season under the Portuguese coach.
