Paul Pogba has revealed he was not allowed to talk after Manchester United's 0-0 stalemate against Valencia on Tuesday night.
Jose Mourinho's side have made their worst start to a league campaign in 29 years after an embarrassing 3-1 loss at West Ham last Saturday, and were knocked out of the Carabao Cup by Championship side Derby.
United made it four home games without a win with their lacklustre 0-0 draw in the Champions League against the La Liga side, with a section of the Old Trafford fans showing their displeasure by booing.
United players avoided the post-match mixed zone interview area after the game to avoid awkward questions until Pogba was asked by reporters for his reaction.
He said: "I've been told I'm not allowed (to talk)."
The French World Cup winner, who was last week told he would not captain the side again, has previously been criticised for undermining Mourinho's tactics calling for his side to "attack, attack, attack" following their 1-1 draw against Wolves.
Pogba shared a frosty exchange with Mourinho in front of the Sky Sports cameras at United's Carrington training ground last week and was substituted in the second half of the defeat at the London Stadium
United are 10th in the Premier League and play Newcastle at the weekend.
Captain Antonio Valencia and midfielder Marouane Fellaini both backed the manager on Tuesday despite the growing pressure on the club and its manager.
