Manchester United ace Paul Pogba has taken a cryptic swipe at Jose Mourinho just minutes after the Portuguese was sacked by the club.
The French midfielder shared a picture of himself looking smug with the line: “Caption this!”, before deleting the post.
Pogba and Mourinho have had a notorious falling out this season which has ultimately been one of the crucial factors to his manager’s downfall.

He wrote on Twitter: ““Caption This “ You do one as well !”
On Monday, Neville said Mourinho would be sacked soon and blasted the board for handing him a new contract in January.
Michael Carrick will now take the reigns at Manchester United but the club are set to look externally for a caretaker manager in the wake of Mourinho’s departure.
In the most recent development, Adidas have now said that Pogba’s post was in no circumstances a purposeful dig at Mourinho.
