” Paul Pogba wanted to LEAVE Manchester United in January if Jose Mourinho stayed on as the Premier League club’s manager. Pogba, the midfielder, has been playing some of the best football of his career since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replaced Mourinho in the Old Trafford hot seat last month.
1 Pogba has been in fine form over the past month This turnaround is even more remarkable given just how poorly the 25-year-old was performing in the final months of Mourinho’s reign as United manager. And, according to The Sun, Pogba was ready to seal an exit from the club this month if the Portuguese was still in charge.
He is believed to have told team-mates he would actively search for a new club to take him on loan to get out of the ‘miserable situation’ he found himself in at Old Trafford.

The Manchester United boss seemed annoyed, despite watching his side fight back twice to claim a 2-2 draw with high-flying Arsenal.

Lucas Torreira was caught in midfield on the ball, waving his arms in protest as he went down. To the chagrin of the Red Devils manager, referee Andre Marriner awarded the diminutive midfielder a free-kick.
With his frustrations getting the better of him, the Portuguese boss got out of his seat and kicked the wall beside him. Realising his mistake, the 55-year-old apologised to the young spectator in the stand. 2 The Portuguese raced from his seat, incensed at the decision to award a foul against his player Jesse Lingard rescued a point for the home side in a fast-paced clash under the Old Trafford lights.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Silva
This is the second time in as many weeks the former Chelsea and Real Madrid boss has become so frustrated he has lashed out at an inanimate object close to him at Old Trafford. Following Marouane Fellaini’s last-minute winner against Young Boys in the Champions League, the United boss picked up a water bottle carrier and duly slammed it to the ground. „
