Gary Neville calls for Paul Pogba to 'do one as well' after cryptic Jose Mourinho dig following his Man Utd sacking

Gary Neville calls for Paul Pogba to 'do one as well' after cryptic Jose Mourinho dig following his Man Utd sacking

The French midfielder shared a picture of himself looking smug with the line: "Caption this!", just minutes after the Portuguese was given his marching orders.


And  since then, Neville has seemingly told the World Cup winner to follow the Portuguese out the Old Trafford door for his ill-timed post.

He wrote on Twitter: "“Caption This “ You do one as well !", to his four million followers.

And many on social media seemingly agree with the former England full-back.

The tweet has been liked 22 thousand times by users on the platform.

Mourinho was shown the door after guiding the Red Devils to their worst start to a league season in 28 years.

And his fractious relations with flamboyant midfielder Pogba has ultimately been a crucial factor to his downfall.

The pair had an infamous training ground bust-up in a video which went viral on social media.

The former Chelsea chief also made an astonishing attack on his record signing earlier this month – labelling Man Utd's record signing 'a virus' in front of his team-mates.

Red Devil legend Neville also gave his reaction to Mourinho's sacking on Sky Sports.

He said: "The management team have had three chances of recruiting a manager, they are probably going to get their fourth and my personal view – and I've said this for some time – the club needs to reset.

“This is a moment for the club to take stock of what they are doing and reset the structure in terms of recruitment and the decision-making at the football club and make sure what they do next is the right move.

“It's not about speed, it's not about rushing and getting the first manager that's available, it's about making sure the next manager is the right manager.

“They will have to pay for him if it's the one we think it's going to be (Mauricio Pochettino). They have to make sure they put the right structure in around him.

“They see it as a positive that they have 65 scouts, I see it as confusion. Especially if you don't have a definitive person with a level of control.

“They've got to put more intelligent people in there who understand the football side of things.”

In the most recent development, Adidas have now said that Pogba's post was in no circumstances a purposeful dig at Mourinho.

One Adidas spokesman said: "Pogba's social media posts were a scheduled event, part of a marketing campaign.

"Immediately taken down once it became apparent that it could be misconstrued as disrespectful to Manchester United and Jose Mourinho".

Fans on social media are split over Neville's response to Pogba.

Many believed it was just a commercial mishap.

Arsenal legend Ian Wright said: "Really Gaz! Is that helping the club ?"

While another wrote: "Gary. Do you think he did it? Would it be fair to say his team did it and it was bad timing. Innocent until proven guilty surely!"

Another fan said: "reign it in a little bit @GNev2 Maybe I'm naive but why then does he tag his boot sponsor?"

While another said: "It’s clearly a scheduled tweet. Pogba was obviously training as it was posted. Drop the agenda Gary."

Other fans on social media believe Pogba's tweet was too coincidental to be planned.

All the signs suggested it was purposeful.

The timing of the tweet, along with Pogba's face in the picture, suggests it was more than just ill-timed.

One fan said: "Needs a bigger clear our then just Jose!"

While another said: "Well said, he doesn’t care about us at all".
