Is there a “war” brewing between Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho and the club’s superstar Paul Pogba? An English expert believes so and insists Pep Guardiola would not make the midfielder look “useless”.

Mourinho substituted the club-record signing in their defeats against Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle, while only naming him among the substitutes in their win against Huddersfield.

Former Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur midfielder, Jamie Redknapp believes Mourinho needs to be careful about how he treats Pogba otherwise he could upset the entire dressing room, before stating that Guardiola would get more out of the Frenchman.

"I can't believe we've got to this situation so quickly, because when he got sent off against Arsenal, everyone was rolling out the stats that Manchester United can't play without him," Redknapp said, as quoted by Sky Sports.

"Everyone said that he was indispensable but now everyone is saying he's useless again. When things are good, he's the best player in the world. And now because of his price tag he's getting slaughtered.

"I think Mourinho has a big responsibility with him, it's his job. Everyone expects him to be this big confident player, but I think deep down he needs to be loved.

"Taking him off against Tottenham, that's not how you're going to get the best out of him. You can see at Newcastle, his confidence was really low.

"I'm not saying you need to pander to him but I don't see a situation where Pep Guardiola would do that. If he was playing at Man City, he would be one of their star performers. I just don't think that Jose Mourinho gets the best out of him.

"Pep's the sort of manager who would bring him on, but with Mourinho it almost feels like he's taking him on. This isn't a kid he's dealing with, he's one of the biggest assets in world football.

"Mourinho is asking for a war now with current players. With Pogba's power in that dressing room, Mourinho has got to be very careful. I don't see the benefit in upsetting one of your star players."

@Blacki Redknapp makes his money by trashing managers, clubs and players as a pundit but I have to agree with him on this one.Mou is a serial killer of creative players with flair. I can add to your list of victims no less than Oscar, Ramirez, Moses, Hazhard who recovered to his prestine self when Mou got fired. He ended the illustrious career of Cassilas too. Big ego who turns players into robots. It's always the system that's used as a straight jacket to restrict even the slightest hint of individual brilliance. Pep would make Pogba what we already know he is: a star! Mou would turn even Kane into a zombie in a few games. Ask Lukaku whom he discarded at Chelsea as an undesirable. Look at Mata!

Mou couldn't do a thing with Kevin De Bruyn and sold him, now look what Pep has done with him a Ballon D'Or contender and favourite to win it. He also sold Mata and if I remember Coutinho was with Inter when he was there but was loaned out to a Spanish side.something fishy about the " Special One ".

Mour must take things so easy not with anger because players will drop their form, he did it to MF27 it was worse on that day because he didn't spend even ten minutes on the field. He came in as sub then he took him of again that was embarrassing. He must stop his attitude because it's cost Man U very much #TheRedDevils

Absolutely, Mour is really destroying his confidence, Pogba is capable of doing things no matter how are they struggling on field but he always makes things easier for the forward to score goals
