During the Veronica football show in the Netherlands, former Crystal Palace manager Frank de Boer was asked who he thinks should replace Jose Mourinho at Manchester United, to which he jokingly replied: "Me".

A clip of Pogba and Mourinho having a tense exchange on the training ground emerged last week, and the Portuguese has told the 25-year-old France global he will not captain the team again.

"Yesterday, I liked a post on Instagram without reading the text that accompanied the picture", Valencia tweeted.

There have also been public disagreements with star player Paul Pogba and, this week, club legends such as Paul Scholes and Rio Ferdinand, who have been critical of the team's performances.

"But if you're a footballer for Manchester United and you put that jersey on and you walk out and you don't give 100 per cent because you might be upset with somebody, then, no, good luck to Mourinho". Don't get that anxious about what the manager said about you or the coaching staff.

"You can follow it up after the match but when the game's going on liven up". But on your bad days you roll your sleeves up and you fight for that jersey.
