Manchester United fans are thrilled at potentially seeing Paul Pogba face Jose Mourinho when Tottenham Hotspur go up against the Red Devils on the 4th of December.
The Frenchman and Portuguese manager didn’t enjoy each others company during the 56-year-old’s time at Old Trafford, with reports from The Telegraph of a dressing room bust-up following the game against Southampton.
After the bust-up, the relationship between both men never seemed to be repaired, and after Mourinho was sacked by United, reports in The Sun claimed Pogba celebrated his sacking.
Despite all bad blood between the two men, Pogba opened up about his relationship with Mourinho, claiming he didn’t have a problem with him (Canal Football Club via Sports Joe).
Fans are thrilled about the 26-year-old starting against Spurs with Mourinho now having taken over from Mauricio Pochettino as they took to Twitter to react.
Here is a selection of tweets from the Old Trafford faithful:
Hope he’s fit by then!!
