Richard Keys has claimed that Jose Mourinho filled him in on all the rows he had with Paul Pogba during his time at Manchester United in the wake of the Frenchman's explosive documentary.
Pogba will leave Old Trafford as a mega-money flop when his deal officially expires at the end of this month, with the midfielder seemingly closing in on return to Juventus – six years after he left the Italian giants to rejoin United in a club-record £89million transfer.
Unfortunately, Pogba failed to live up to the hype and is leaving United under a cloud, but the 29-year-old is currently making headlines with his five-part documentary on Amazon. The controversial playmaker has lifted the lid on how his relationship with Mourinho, the man responsible for signing off the big-bucks deal that brought him back to the Premier League, broke down.
“It all started when I got injured,” Pogba explained. “I decided to go to Miami for rehab and left. In Miami a paparazzo photographed me with my wife Zulay.
“Mourinho sent the photo to Raiola. I didn't like it at all… at all. I said to Mou, ‘are you serious? I am injured, but I come here to train three times a day. Who do you think I am? I'm not like other players’.”
But Keys quickly dismissed Pogba's comments, revealing that Mourinho – who slammed Pogba publicly on several occasions – had filled him on various rows the pair had – and even claimed that United were better off without Pogba, who he branded a 'virus'.

The ex-Sky Sports host tweeted: “I doubt there’s anything in the Pogmentary that will persuade me that Pogba isn’t a virus & United are well rid of him. £300,000/week – nothing? Didn’t feel loved? Please. Mourinho told me about his rows & there’s only one side to take.”
Pogba has been slammed by fans after controversially claiming that the club offered him 'nothing' to stay at the club – despite the fact he was reportedly offered a new £300,000-a-week deal.
Pogba said: “My thought process is to show Manchester [United] that they made a mistake in waiting to give me a contract. And to show other clubs that Manchester had made a mistake in not offering me a contract.
“How can you tell a player you absolutely want him and offer him nothing? Never seen that.”
