Kuyt: Pogba was screaming at his own players

If Feyenoord forward Dirk Kuyt's claims are to be believed, it seems things may not be as rosy at Manchester United for Jose Mourinho as it first appeared.

United were humbled 2-1 by Manchester City over the last weekend and then endured a frustrating trip to Rotterdam in the Europa League as they lost 1-0 to Feyenoord on Thursday.

One player who seemed to feel this frustration more than others was £89 million man Paul Pogba.

Former Liverpool stalwart and current Feyenoord captain Kuyt has told how Pogba started yelling at his teammates during the loss.

"All I heard during the first half against United was Pogba screaming and shouting at his own players," he said after the match.

"And when it was half-time, he was shouting at them all even louder.

Tactically Feyenoord had an easy time preparing for Mourinho's men, who Kuyt feels are predictable.

"The thing about United is that they only know one way to play. We waited for them to attack and stayed very compact as a team because we knew that if you attack them from the beginning then you run into a knife.

"They love to counter-attack. But, if you stop them doing that, then you know that you will always get chances against them."
