Paul Pogba wants to leave Manchester United

Pogba enjoyed an impressive World Cup and his intention was not to return to Old Trafford, but he had little choice and while he continues in Manchester for now, it seems only a matter of time before the player moves on.

"[The game against Wolves was] an important lesson; a lesson that I repeat week after week after week, a lesson that some boys are not learning", Mourinho said.

Pogba is a pest and clearly an agitator, always has been, but Mourinho fits the exact same mould.

'As someone who wants Manchester United to do well, I'm fed up of waking up and seeing these headlines.

On Monday, however, Pogba hinted on Twitter that his comments had been misinterpreted to cause "drama". We haven't played great, we haven't been unlucky and opposition weren't lucky.

The BBC claim that Mourinho has told Pogba he will not wear the captains armband again, as the French superstar appeared to undermine his authority when it came to tactics.

Lampard won five major trophies under Mourinho at Chelsea, including back-to-back Premier League titles, and feels the Portuguese's reputation as a negative coach is unfair.

Pogba, who rejoined United from Juventus for a then world record fee in 2016, fell out of favour last season and suggested he was dissatisfied at Old Trafford.

Pogba captained United on three occasions this season, all when club captain Antonio Valencia was absent.

The France global said United should "attack, attack, attack" when playing at Old Trafford in a none too disguised criticism of Mourinho's approach.

Jack Marriott's 85th-minute header put Frank Lampard on course for a first victory against a Premier League side as manager until Marouane Fellaini equalised deep into stoppage time - but that just delayed the celebrations.

"Somebody has to miss", said Mourinho.

Lampard's side were rewarded for their enterprising play in the 59th minute when on-loan Liverpool winger Wilson powered a fine free-kick past Romero.

Eight minutes later, Romero was dismissed for handling outside the box and Derby grabbed what they thought was the victor when United's substitute keeper Lee Grant parried a shot from Mason Mount and Jack Marriott nodded in the loose ball.

Lukaku hit the woodwork as United tried to respond, but Derby made the most of their numerical advantage to snatch the lead in the 85th minute.

The France midfielder was rested for the clash and watched on from the stands.
