Former Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov has admitted that he is sick of waking up to the constant barrage of Paul Pogba and Jose Mourinho related headlines.
The relationship, or lack thereof, between the Red Devils manager and his £89 million midfielder has been a major talking point for the best part of a year now and speculation has gone into overdrive in the last week with news that Pogba had been stripped of United vice-captaincy, as well as video footage emerging of a training ground bust-up between the pair.
Berbatov has revealed that he, like many Manchester United fans, would prefer if things were done the old fashioned way and sorted out behind closed doors, with the Bulgarian also admitting that he is becoming sick of the pair’s relationship dominating the headlines.
“I’m really surprised it has got to this stage,” Berbatov wrote in his Betfair column.
“This sort of thing really needs to be kept in-house. You’re all grown-ups, figure it out in the dressing room
“For Mourinho to have gone as far as removing the vice-captaincy, Pogba must have provoked him – whether it was the comments after the Wolves game or something else. But these arguments affect everybody else and start having an impact on the pitch.
“As someone who wants Manchester United to do well, I’m fed up of waking up and seeing these headlines. Football should be about what happens on the pitch, not who has the biggest d***. It’s a stupid situation.”
Well said Dimi, well said.
