Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has described his relationship with Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho as a professional relationship.

Speaking about his relationship with Mourinho ahead of United’s Champions League clash with Juventus on Wednesday, Pogba said: “If I ask you this question how is the manager with other players, he will say he is the manager and I’m the player.

“I think the same way as everybody. I’m just a player, I do what he tells me to do. He’s the boss, he’s the manager and I listen. I enjoy it, I just listen, and I do it with happiness.”

Pogba also claimed he isn’t hurt by Mourinho’s decision to strip him of the vice-captaincy.

“It didn’t affect me,” Pogba said of Mourinho’s decision to strip him of the vice-captaincy.

“I’m still playing and I’m really happy to play, the manager is the one who chooses who is captain. I was the second one after Valencia. Then if he takes me the armband it doesn’t change anything for me.

“I just want to play, perform, that’s my job and give my best for my team and for everybody, for the fans, for the club. It didn’t really touch me, didn’t affect me. Nothing changed really.”
