Pogba will not captain Man United again - Mourinho

Share

The Frenchman played for Man United on the weekend in their 1-1 draw with Wolves.

The France global has made a decision to return to Turin, where he spent four seasons, winning four leagues, two cups and two Italian Super Cups, after clashing with United coach Jose Mourinho.

Complaints about Mourinho's style of football at Old Trafford are not new, but with the results also not coming, the clamour to play more attacking football is increasing. "We are here to attack", said Pogba.

Manchester United and Derby County have met in the League Cup twice before, with United winning both times, in the quarter-finals in 1970 and the semi-finals in 2009.

He said: 'I don't consider them favourites because it is really hard to do that in the Championship - it's such a difficult competition and it's becoming a good competition, with so many good teams, that it is difficult to qualify and say this team is a candidate. That was our mistake. "When we play like (that) it's easier for us".

You will find Jose Mourinho's players being managers all over the place because he has been so successful in his career.

Asked what was stopping United from attacking, Pogba replied: 'I can't tell you because I'm a player.

"I am not the manager, I can not, like, say that, but obviously we should show more options of playing".

"When you are an offensive player you just want to keep the ball".

"But I can not say that, because I'm a player".

"If we put in the energy and the focus that we have (against Brentford) then we'll make a good account of ourselves", he said.

It seems Pogba's comments acted as the last straw for Mourinho who reportedly told him in front of other team mates during a training session that he would be stripped off captain duties.

The Rams head to Old Trafford to take on Manchester United in the Carabao Cup this Tuesday night and fans can follow all the build-up, coverage and reaction to the game on RamsTV. "Big Pogoodmorning everyone hope u get it twisted".
