Chris Smalling in line to receive new contract at Manchester United

The French World Cup victor suggested United need to "attack, attack, attack" when they play at Old Trafford as he hinted Mourinho's negative tactics were restricting the team's ambition and Mourinho has been quick to respond with a very public punishment for one of his star players.

According to The Times, Mourinho held an impromptu team meeting on Tuesday ahead of their Carabao Cup game against Derby County.

Mourinho is understood to have made the brutal declaration in front of the rest of Pogba's stunned team-mates before their defeat to Derby. "The players were happy with that decision and the reasons behind the manager's decision".

Pogba has been left out of United's squad to play Derby tonight.

Phil Jones finally missed from the spot after 15 successful penalties in a high quality shootout.

So I have to organise them better defensively and the players have to understand that'. We have spoken and I told him he can score 40 goals.

Pogba has scored two Premier League goals this season, both from the penalty spot, although he was denied from 12 yards by Joe Hart against Burnley.

But things didn't go to plan as the Red Devils were dumped out of the competition 2-1 after Sergio Romero was sent off. "Don't get me wrong, the club have supported Jose Mourinho and given him a lot of money, but you can not go half-hearted".

"Maybe the attitude should be better and we should play better because, again, we are at Old Trafford and we should just attack and press like we did against Tottenham, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal last season", the midfielder said.

"You feel like you've done your work when you come to Old Trafford and go against Jose Mourinho and world class players".

"It is easy to get caught up in the game-by-game fluctuations of our season or even the relatively minor pieces of business and industry news, I would like to take this opportunity to take a step back and look at the bigger picture. The feeling I got from it was huge, it's an incredible feeling for me".
