A report claims that Manchester United's board are starting to wonder if they wrongly sided with Paul Pogba following his bitter dispute with Jose Mourinho in 2018.

Manchester United chiefs reportedly fear that they wrongly sided with Paul Pogba over Jose Mourinho when the pair clashed two years ago.

The pair's relationship was a toxic one during Mourinho's time at Old Trafford, with many feeling that the bitter falling out contributed to the Portuguese's sacking.

Mourinho's successor Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is now experiencing similar problems, with Pogba's agent publicly revealing this week that the midfielder wants to leave the club.

According to The Sun, United's board believe that they may have misjudged the situation when Mourinho was at the helm.

It is claimed that the Red Devils felt at the time that Mourinho was being his typical self in an attempt to get the best out of the France international.

Solskjaer's own future at United is in doubt following Tuesday's Champions League exit, but he is believed to have the backing of the board for now.
