Pogba posted "Caption this!" alongside a picture of himself adopting a knowing look on social media in the immediate wake of Mourinho's sacking as manager on Tuesday.
Pogba's post wasn't the smartest move in truth and now United legend Gary Neville has let rip with a damning tweet in response.
A representative of Adidas told a journalist, as per The Mirror: "Pogba's social media posts were a scheduled event, part of a marketing campaign".
UPDATE: Lo and behold...
However, given the tense relationship between Pogba and Mourinho, Neville felt the midfielder was guilty of a callous piece of opportunism.
"Whoever came into that football club would find things hard because Manchester City, Liverpool and Tottenham are doing things better".
"He's a huge talent and I actually have belief in him as a player and I liked him when he was at the club as a kid".
"They will have to pay for him if it's the one we think it's going to be (Mauricio Pochettino)".
The end for Mourinho at English soccer's most prestigious club came two days after a 3-1 loss at Liverpool, which was the latest reminder of just how far United has slumped behind the top teams in the Premier League and Europe.
The Manchester Evening News is quoting former player Paul Ince, who claims some of the team's players tried to get Mourinho sacked.
"So there's been a complete breakdown probably in the last 12 months and there's no doubt there's a high level of dislike there".
Former Manchester United captain, Gary Neville has issued out warning to former Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane over taking the Red Devils job. "The club won't get rid of £700-800million worth of talent when they can get rid of a manager who might cost them £25-30million".
The famously self-assured Mourinho has admitted to being lazy and with his family remaining in London, he stayed in a luxury hotel rather than find a house during his failed tenure as United's manager.
The Frenchman left Real Madrid in May shortly after becoming the first manager in history to win the Champions League-both in its current format and as the European Cup-three times in a row. Jose has won everywhere he's been. "In my mind as well, I never thought for one second Jose would leave without winning a title".
