Paul Pogba's brother has lifted the lid on the disastrous relationship of the World Cup winner with Jose Mourinho.

Footballer Mathias has beaten Manchester United's dismissed manager for his midfielder treatment.

The 28-year-old, who played in the English game for Wrexham and Crewe Alexandra, told French radio that he tore up the Old Trafford dressing room.

"It was Mourinho that was the problem," said the older brother of the United star.

"From what we see from Mourinho, he always wants to be the maestro, the center of attention.

"Paul does not even calculate that aspect, you respect him, he will respect you, you trust him, he will make great matches for you.

"The problem was Mourinho, completely in line, in the dressing room, outside the dressing room – everything."

Paul Pogba closed his lips, since United dismissed the Portuguese on December 18.

However, he did share a cryptic tweet in which users were asked to keep an image of him with a wry smile within an hour of Mourinho's departure.

He then removed the tweet so quickly – but that did not stop him from staying with the legendary Gary Neville.

The Sky Sport expert told Pogba that he "can also do one", but because the manager has increased his form, he has improved dramatically.
