MANCHESTER UNITED have dismissed reports of a bust-up between Jose Mourinho and stars Paul Pogba and Phil Jones.

It has been claimed Mourinho was involved in a furious war of words with them following United's shock defeat at Newcastle last weekend.

Mourinho is said to have blamed the duo for the 1-0 loss and got involved in a huge row with them at St James' Park.

The Red Devils boss hauled Pogba off in the second half to leave the French superstar sat on the sidelines with a face like thunder.

But United chiefs have moved swiftly to deny reports of a fall out and described the claim as 'total rubbish'.
