The fallout from Jose Mourinho's sacking courtesy of Manchester United is still coming thick and fast.

It has been one of the biggest managerial departures in Premier League history, with the Red Devils enduring a woeful start to the season under the Portuguese.

The season has been littered with player spats and controversial press conferences, while the performances on the pitch have reflected the toxic atmosphere behind-the-scenes.

One player that everyone has been itching to know about in the days after Mourinho's exit is Paul Pogba, with the Frenchman and the former manager certainly not getting on of late.

The enigmatic midfielder actually posted a controversial tweet in the minutes after Mourinho's sacking was announced by the club.

A tweet was sent from Pogba's official account titled "caption this", with a picture of the midfielder smirking along with some Adidas hashtags.

It was apparently scheduled, but it still caused a huge stir.

And it seems Pogba's behaviour at Carrington was even worse on Tuesday morning.

According to The Sun, the Frenchman made a rather vulgar outburst in the dressing room after learning of the news.

Pogba reportedly led celebrations and then said: “He thought he could make a fool of me and turn the fans against me. He f***ed with the wrong baller.”

Wow, regardless of the clear animosity between the pair, that is simply not on. The final six words just say it all.

Focus now switches to whether Pogba actually has a future at the club, despite the fact that Ole Gunner Solskjaer is now the interim manager.

The £89m midfielder has annoyed a lot of fans with his actions in the last few weeks and is still yet to find form after winning the World Cup with France.

However, there is no doubting that Pogba is United's most creative midfielder and when he's in full flow, they are a far better team.

A difficult decision for Solskjaer to make for Saturday's visit to Cardiff.
