Mourinho: No player is bigger than Manchester United

Mourinho: No player is bigger than Manchester United

Despite the public development of his feud with Mourinho this week, Paul Pogba was included in United's starting lineup but he could not inspire a response from the visitors who were short of creative ideas.

Mourinho was angry with Pogba because he thought the Frenchman made an Instagram post during United's defeat to Derby.

Another was to bring on Marcus Rashford, who, returning from a three-match suspension, pulled one back for United on 71 minutes when he connected sweetly with a near-post flick from a corner, catching Fabianski by surprise.

A turbulent week in the pair's relationship saw Mourinho inform Pogba he will never captain the side again under him, after the French midfielder criticised his tactics in last weekend's 1-1 draw with Wolves.

A 3-1 loss at West Ham on Saturday left United with 10 points from seven games - matching the club's previous worst Premier League start under Moyes in 2013 immediately after Alex Ferguson's retirement.

Jose Mourinho lamented a lack of quality at Manchester United following another loss, but insists his players' attitudes can not be questioned.

"I think the manager, what he's paid to do is be a manager and dictate to these players and make sure he rules from the top".

I am really happy with his work this week. Are these players really good enough.

Asked if it was a good idea to confront Pogba in front of the cameras, Mourinho said: "I don't care about the cameras". "Exactly that. I think Paul told [said the same] in one of his appearances in the famous mixed zone and he is correct".

"There is no chance I am going to open the training session and let you watch a training session".

"Maybe you have to change the potential if you want to know everything that is said because I'm not going to comment, it was a conversation".

Former Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane is reportedly taking English lessons so as to prepare himself in case Manchester United decide to fire embattled Jose Mourinho.

"I explained in detail to the people that have to know in detail, which is the squad and especially Paul".

"I always analyse a player as a player and when a player is captain, I analyse him from both a player and captain's perspective".

After weeks of analysing and exchanging opinions with my coaching staff, we made the decision that from now Paul is just a player and not a captain.
