Paul Pogba screamed He f****d with the wrong baller after Jose Mourinho was sacked at Manchester United
The 55-year-old was informed on Tuedsay morning during a one-on-one meeting with Ed Woodward that his two and a half years at Old Trafford had come to an end.
Mourinho fell out with a string of United players during his third campaign at the club but the deterioration in his relationship with Pogba overshadowed the season.
It became clear that Mourinho and Pogba could no longer co-exist at the Theatre of Dreams and the Frenchman was contemplating leaving the club if nothing changed.
However, Pogba was overjoyed at the training ground yesterday when news broke of Mourinhos departure and was heard shouting He thought he could make a fool of me and turn the fans against me. He f***ed with the wrong baller, according to the Sun.
Carrick, who had been placed in interim charge before Ole Gunnar Solskjaers appointment as caretaker, ordered Pogba to halt his celebrations and told the United squad that no player will ever be bigger than the club.

Carrick is said to have warned the squad that United will let any player leave that shows disrespect to the badge but the celebrations are said to have continued privately.
Pogba hastily deleted a tweet appearing to mock Mourinhos sacking shortly after the clubs official announcement, which irked former club captain Gary Neville.
Solskjaer is expected to take training at Carrington tomorrow after arriving in Manchester late on Wednesday.
While the majority of United players were overjoyed that Mourinho had left, the likes of Nemanja Matic and Romelu Lukaku were despondent.
Mourinho maintained the respect of as little as 10% of the squad in the last days of his time at Old Trafford but Eric Bailly and Jesse Lingard were two of the first squad members to thank him publicly on Instagram.
