Manchester United have made their worst start to the season after the 3-1 defeat to West Ham last weekend, and the result took Jose Mourinho’s men to 10th on the table and 9 points behind table toppers Manchester City.

A lot of rumours have circulated of unrest in the Manchester United camp, and it became intense after the United boss was recorded having an argument with Paul Pogba on the training pitch.

In an interview with Notts TV, Roy Keane had a go at the players and urged them to play for the club even though they are in disagreement with the manager.

When asked if he was specifically talking about Pogba, Keane responded: “I’m not talking about Pogba. I’m talking about players in general. Players who get upset with a manager or a coaching staff and think ‘I’m not going to train properly because somebody upset me’.

“There’s a lot of cry babies out there

“When you walk out on that pitch you’re playing for your pride, you’re playing for your family, you’re playing for your city, whatever it might be.

“Don’t get that worried about what the manager’s said about you, or the coaching staff, you get out there and play.

“You can follow it up after the match but when the game’s going on liven up. Play with pride, play with energy, play with spirit.

“Hopefully play with a bit of skill. But on your bad days you roll your sleeves up and you fight for that jersey.

“Don’t get distracted by the balloons out there.”

Following the draw against Wolves, Mourinho revealed that Pogba has been stripped of his vice-captaincy.

“The only truth is that I made the decision of Pogba not to be the second-captain anymore,” Mourinho said.

“No fall out. The person who made the decision to be second-captain was also me. Just one decision which I don’t have to explain.”
