"Whether you like Mourinho or not, Pogba has hardly been absolutely wonderful for Manchester United since joining", Burley told ESPN FC.
Mourinho has been openly critical of his star midfielder in recent times, saying that his work rate isn't up to standard.
Those comments are said to have got under Mourinho's skin, but it is reported that Pogba's desire to leave Old Trafford for Barcelona was behind the decision to strip him of the vice-captaincy.
Lampard's intelligent and dynamic midfield play earned him 106 caps for his country and he won three Premier League titles at Chelsea as well as the UEFA Champions League in 2012.
The 25-year-old was seen shaking hands with coach Michael Carrick, Mourinho and a member of United's media officer John Allen, before looking taken aback by something the manager said.
Pogba has already been linked with a move away from Old Trafford with Barcelona interested before the close of the summer transfer window.
Manchester United have slapped a £200 million price tag on the 2018 World Cup victor, although it remains to be seen if Barcelona would be willing to part with a club record transfer fee.

Since then, Kirk's leftovers have generally stuck together as they have continued to truck westward toward the Caribbean. Tropical Storm Kirk was 415 miles east of Barbados and about 535 miles east-southeast of Martinique.
In the meeting, Mourinho told the entire squad that Paul Pogba will never again be named the Manchester United captain under his management.
I'm not the manager, I can not, like, say that but ... obviously we should show more option of playing but I can not say that because I'm a player.
But while there is a sense of exasperation with Mourinho's approach, there is also an air of helplessness among the players due to the realisation that the club remains supportive of the manager.
"I'm not saying Mourinho is innocent, he's clearly not, but there are too many players hiding".
Pogba was bought in August 2016 for a then-world-record £89 million, returning to Manchester United, where he began his professional career.
Mourinho's latest stand smacks of a leader who has made a decision to go all-in on reimposing his authority at Old Trafford, evidently deciding that the provocative comments from his most important player were the final straw.
