Barcelona 'convinced Paul Pogba will stay'


The former Arsenal forward was speaking about the similarities between present-day United and the circumstances that ultimately saw Arsene Wenger pushed out of Arsenal last season.

Paul Ince has branded Manchester United as the laughing stock of the Premier League following their defeat to Brigthon and Hove Albion.

Following United's shocking 3-2 defeat to Brighton on Sunday, Old Trafford legend Paul Scholes delivered a damning assessment of Pogba's leadership qualities.

Zinedine Zidane would be "the ideal candidate" to take the reins at Manchester United, says Lee Sharpe, with Jose Mourinho now "on trial again".

If there were bets to be placed on the next man to face the sacking in the Premier League, Jose would certainly be topping that list.

The Chelsea players refused to play for Mourinho in the end and while it is unacceptable for any footballer to down tools and refuse to give of his best, you can understand why this particular manager is hard to play for. However, that style of football mostly got results, even though United ended the season trophyless, they still finished second, the highest they've finished since Sir Alex Ferguson left.

"The club are delivering off the field, Ed Woodward has done an incredible job in terms of the commercial operation and the way in which the club makes an operating profit, but there is no doubt he should put a footballing structure underneath him that his extremely serious and can go and deliver for him on the pitch". "Profit on the pitch is performance and trophies - league titles and Champions Leagues".

Reports earlier this month also claimed Mourinho was involved in a bust-up with Paul Pogba over the Frenchman's future.

The banner will display a message in protest against the club's executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward after a disappointing summer in the transfer window.

Some pundits expect him to be sacked before Christmas and that looks quite likely at the moment, especially as he clearly did not have the club's backing in the transfer market in the summer.

United's dry spell has gone on too long and it's time something changed.

The start to United's season has been marred by friction between manager Jose Mourinho and midfielder Paul Pogba and has seen former players including Gary Neville suggest that Woodward had been "half-hearted" in his support of the Portuguese boss.
