Paul Pogba’s social media posts cause confusion after Jose Mourinho sacking

By December 18, 2018No Comments

Paul Pogba has confused football fans on social media with two cryptic posts shared after Jose Mourinho was sacked by Manchester United on Tuesday.

Just minutes after the news of Mourinho’s departure from the club broke, a picture of Paul Pogba frowning at the camera appeared on his Twitter and Instagram accounts with the words: “Caption This!”

The text also included @adidasfootball as well as the hashtag #heretocreate, an Adidas slogan, suggesting the posts were sponsored.

They were deleted quickly but some believed it was an unsubtle dig at Mourinho, who Pogba has famously clashed with in recent months.

Former United defender Gary Neville appeared to react unfavourably to the deleted posts on Twitter.

Former United and France captain Patrice Evra called for positivity from everyone involved with the club instead of focusing on individuals.

Meanwhile, others suggested the post was scheduled by Pogba’s team and was simply a case of bad timing.

Adidas has yet to respond to requests for comment about the nature of the post.
