Pogba was criticised for his post, which featured a photo of him smiling, on Tuesday, most notably by Gary Neville who responded, "You do one as well."

The Frenchman had a long-running rift with Mourinho, who removed him as vice-captain after Pogba hit out at the Portuguese's tactics. 

New interim boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has a better relationship with Pogba, having coached him in United's youth set up before he moved to Serie A giants Juventus.

The Norwegian's reign at Old Trafford got off to a blistering start when his side won 5-1 at Cardiff City on Saturday, closing the gap on fourth-placed Chelsea to eight points after the Blues slipped up against Leicester City, losing 1-0.

United face Huddersfield on Boxing Day in Solskjaer's first match at home, and Pogba will be hoping to continue his return to the starting 11 with another three points.
