Jamie Redknapp believes that there is a “huge rift” between Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba at Manchester United following reports of a fresh bust-up between the pair.

Much has been made about Pogba and Mourinho’s apparently tumultuous relationship at Old Trafford since the midfielder returned to the club from Juventus in the summer of 2016.

Pogba has been widely criticised for his failure to produce consistent displays for the Red Devils, but he was in fine form as he helped France to win the World Cup in Russia over the summer.

There have been reports this week that suggested a fresh fall-out between the pair, and Mourinho confirmed on Tuesday that Pogba is no longer the club’s vice-captain.

And former Liverpool FC star Redknapp feels that there is clearly a huge rift between the pair after the latest developments.

Speaking in an interview with Sky Sports on Tuesday night, Redknapp said: “There’s been an almighty fall out.

“That’s a kick in the teeth if you tell someone they are the vice-captain and then you take it off him. You don’t need me to say it.

“There’s a huge rift between the two of them. I felt they might be able to recover it when Mourinho made him captain for a couple of games.

“I think it was probably the right decision to rest him today, but going forward I don’t see how you patch that up.”

Manchester United were knocked out of the League Cup on Tuesday night after Frank Lampard’s Derby County side triumphed on penalties after a thrilling 2-2 draw at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils will now dust themselves down as they prepare to return to Premier League action with a lunchtime trip to West Ham United on Saturday.
