Motivate Yourselves, Jose Mourinho Urges Under-Performing Manchester United

It would be recalled that Jose Mourinho had earlier announced his decision to strip Paul Pogba of his captaincy role at Manchester United after the ex-Juventus midfielder publicly criticized Manchester United style of play in their 1-1 draw against Wolves.

Former United defender Rio Ferdinand has suggested Mourinho's problems may run deeper than just Pogba.

Pogba was rested in midweek, but Mourinho was reportedly unhappy about an Instagram video in which Pogba appeared laughing while watching Tuesday's match at Old Trafford.

Shaw, who still has a fragile relationship with Mourinho despite forcing his way back into the team, Marcus Rashford, who has been frustrated by a lack of opportunities at centre-half, and new signing Fred are on the periphery of Pogba's group.

"He's a player like the others; no player is bigger than the club and if I'm happy with his work he plays, if I'm not happy he doesn't play", he said. "We work very, very well - especially Wednesday and Thursday - so I expect a very good performance and I expect to win a very hard match".

Mourinho admitted his team had not been aggressive enough in their defending at West Ham's second goal and also bemoaned what he thought was an offside first goal.

Mourinho bridled when asked whether he might have had the conversation with Pogba away from the cameras that were filming the session on Wednesday because it proved disruptive.

"You made a story - an incredible story - out of 15 minutes of training", Mourinho told the media on Friday.

"I have to train as always".

"When you say disruptive or you got on camera me speaking with Paul, I am happy that you don't come here more times because you would get much more than that", he said. It was not the case but loud critiques, loud instruction happens every day. Coaching is about that but you make story about it.

"I do like the rule that only 15 minutes of training can be filmed each month". "Honestly, I don't think so".

The 55-year-old then insisted that their relationship is "good", before pointedly saying "It is not any more a relationship between captain - or one of the captains - and manager". He had a fantastic attitude, ' Mourinho said after the 3-1 loss. I always analyse a player as a player and when a player is captain I analyse the player by the player and the captain perspective.
