Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has reportedly told Paul Pogba that he will never captain Manchester United again after the midfielder criticised the team’s tactics in the 1-1 draw against Wolves on Sunday, according to a report on Daily Star via Daily Express.
Pogba revealed after the draw with Wolves that Manchester United needed to attack more in games at Old Trafford and that statement hasn’t gone down well with Mourinho.
Speaking after the draw against Wolves, Pogba said: “When we are at home we should attack, attack, attack.
“That’s Old Trafford. We are here to attack. I think teams are scared when they see Man United attacking and attacking. That was our mistake today.”
Mourinho made the decision in an attempt to show his authority and remind the players that he is in charge. The payers are reportedly happy with Mourinho’s decision not to give Pogba the captain armband again.
A source told Daily Star of Mourinho’s decision not to give the captain armband to Pogba again.
“Jose told the players that Pogba will not be the captain because he doesn’t represent what a captain is and Manchester United is bigger than anyone,” a source told Daily Star.
“The players were happy with that decision and the reasons behind the manager’s decision.”
