Paul Pogba ‘points a finger at Jose Mourinho’ in his upcoming documentary, according to reports. The France international moved back to Manchester United in 2016, when the current Roma boss ruled the roost. However, the two had an uneasy relationship during their time at Old Trafford together – despite winning the Carabao Cup and Europa League.

After six years at United, it was recently confirmed that Pogba would be departing Old Trafford on a free transfer for a second time – having previously done so back in 2012.

And the midfielder is poised to talk about life with the Red Devils in an upcoming documentary.

It’s already been revealed that Pogba was unhappy about United offering him £290,000-a-week, dismissing such a huge wage as a ‘nothing’ offer.

And, now, The Athletic have provided more details about the upcoming show.

It’s stated that, during the documentary, Pogba ‘points a finger’ at Mourinho for struggling to shine at Old Trafford.

Furthermore, the France international also touches upon his relationship with the current Roma boss.

Mourinho, when he signed Pogba, thought he was getting a midfielder who had the capacity to become one of the best players on the planet.

Things started well enough, with the duo winning the Carabao Cup and Europa League in 2017 with victories over Southampton and Ajax.

But Mourinho and Pogba fell out the following year.

The pair became embroiled in a touchline row during a 2-0 defeat to Tottenham in 2018, mere weeks after Alexis Sanchez had arrived from Arsenal.

And their relationship never recovered, with the pair clashing multiple times before Mourinho was sacked in December 2018.

Pogba is described as ‘almost childlike’ in the documentary – which is no bad thing.

There are ‘clever animated sequences’ that ‘the sense of desolation he has felt at various stages of his life’ – such as when he was initially rejected by the French Football Federation as a child.

Pogba also ‘comes across as a devoted family man’, with the midfielder playing with his two young children.

And it’s now feasible that he’ll return to Juventus after six years away.

In the documentary, the late Mino Raiola rules out a move to Turin by saying they ‘can’t afford him’.

But things have changed since the filming and all signs point to Pogba heading back to Turin, where he was a huge club hit.

Pogba talks about injuries and criticism for his United performances, too.

Yet this is said to be brief, with the 29-year-old instead ‘dismissing it as unwelcome background noise’.

Meanwhile, speaking recently, Juventus goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny admitted he’d love to have Pogba as a team-mate.

“Yes, we’d welcome him back — he did brilliantly in his previous time at Juventus so he would be a great addition to the squad,” he said.

“He is a player with good calibre and experience, and he has good memories from Turin.

“I’d be delighted to see that happen.

“He’s absolutely still a top player.

“Maybe over the last couple of years, the consistency of his game and the injuries didn’t help at United.

“But when he is fit, he is still one of the best in the world.”
