Paul Pogba was the subject of a dressing room telling off from Jose Mourinho after making a costly error in Saturday’s home draw with Wolves.
The Manchester United manager was said to be furious with the Frenchman for giving the ball away in the build-up to Joao Moutinho’s equaliser just after half-time in the 1-1 stalemate at Old Trafford.
Pogba, who has enjoyed a frosty relationship with Mourinho since rejoining the Red Devils, had been caught in possession by Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves while attempting a turn on the halfway line.

And according to the Sun, Mourinho gave Pogba a dressing down in the changing room immediately after the game, telling him he needed to concentrate more.
United finished second last season under Mourinho, but have started slowly this time around, and the worry is that mistakes such as Pogba’s are bringing their woes into even more focus.
The divisions in the United camp further deepened over the weekend when Pogba hit back at his side’s tactics in his post-match interview, suggesting they were overly defensive for a home team.
‘When we are at home we should attack, attack, attack,’ he told reporters.
‘That’s Old Trafford. We are here to attack. I think teams are scared when they see Man United attacking and attacking. That was our mistake today.’
