Former Manchester United Players React As Pogba Post Cryptic Tweet

Following their defeat at the hands of arch-rivals Liverpool which see them 19 points behind league leaders, Manchester United decided to part ways with Jose Mourinho.

Minutes after Manchester United officially announced the sacking of Jose Mourinho, French International and Manchester United midfielder posted a photo in his social media platforms with the caption, “caption this @manutd #manutd @adidasfootball #heretocreate”

#HereToCreate is a slogan of Adidas’ marketing campaign, who sponsors him. It is assumed that the photo may have been scheduled earlier by the player’s PR team. However, the photo was deleted quickly after it stirred controversy.

The French midfielder, who was a part of the World-Cup winning France squad, had a strained relationship with Jose Mourinho. The coach even stripped Pogba of his captaincy and the former Juventus midfielder did not start for the Red Devils against Liverpool, a game which they lost 3-1.

Former Manchester United player Gary Neville, who is now a Sky Sports Pundit, posted a similar tweet, seemingly to express he was not at all impressed by the post.

Ex-Liverpool player Jamie Carragher backed Gary Neville’s opinion by retweeting the latter’s tweet with the caption,

Meanwhile, another former Manchester United defender Patrice Evra was annoyed that people so focused on Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba. He exhorted to focus on rebuilding something instead of being in a playground and said doing so is only disrespecting the badge [Manchester United’s].

The former defender also said they only need positivity.

Author’s Take

It seems like the post was scheduled by Pogba’s PR team even before the news [Jose Mourinho’s sacking]  broke. With Mourinho gone, Pogba will enjoy more duties at Manchester United. Former Manchester United player Michael Carrick is appointed as the interim coach until they find a caretaker coach. United are currently placed 6th in the point table and whoever comes in has a big task to execute.
