José Mourinho feels lack of support at Manchester United

Jose Mourinho blamed the lack of a police escort on the team's tardiness

With Jose Mourinho having appeared to question Pogba's commitment and attitude on a number of occasions, along with other players, this was perhaps a fitting riposte.

However, the under-fire manager saw his side toil to a 0-0 Uefa Champions League draw against Valencia to boos at the final whistle. "I'm surprised he survived after Saturday [when United lost 3-1 to West Ham], it was that bad, the attitude, the performance", Scholes told BT Sport.

United are 10th in the Premier League and play Newcastle at the weekend.

While it has been Mourinho that has taken some stinging criticism from former players such as Paul Scholes during the week, Keane has taken aim at the players. I always look forward to our games but recently Mourinho has made watching us a punishment now.

With his right to speak now inhibited, Pogba instead took to social media to reassure fans after Tuesday night's game, as he wrote: "Let's keep fighting United".

Andreas Pereira has "liked" a post on Instagram urging Jose Mourinho to restore both himself and compatriot Fred to the Manchester United midfield.

The Ecuadorian later wrote he liked the post "without reading the text". "I am fully supportive of the manager and my team-mates. People can say what they like, especially Manchester United supporters, because I respect their point of view".

"I think we showed improvement and we have to keep going", he added.

Pogba then claimed he was banned from talking to the media following Tuesday's stalemate against Valencia in the Champions League, while captain Antonio Valencia issued an apology after liking a post on Instagram that called for United to sack Mourinho.

The defender's relationship with Mourinho has become strained after he was rebuked for failing to attend United's Carabao Cup defeat by Derby County last week, which led to him being dropped against West Ham.
