Jose Mourinho’s relationship with midfielder Paul Pogba may have soured even more following Manchester United’s draw with Wolverhampton on the weekend.
ESPN are among the major outlets reporting that the Manchester United boss has told the France star he won’t ever captain the side again.
The Portuguese coach is understood to be extremely displeased with the way things have unfolded between himself and Pogba so far this season and has let the midfielder know he won’t be wearing the armband for United
As ESPN report, Mourinho’s decision was made in order to ‘underline his authority at Old Trafford’ and all of his players were apprised at the club’s training ground in Carrington on Tuesday.
“We are at home and we should play much better against Wolves,” he said after the match. “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.”
Asked what’s keeping the team from attacking more, he replied: “I can’t tell you because I’m a player. It’s not me.”
Pogba also upset the manager after claiming he would be fined for speaking his mind after United’s opening day win over Leicester City last month.
Per the report, the Frenchman will not look to force a move away from Manchester in January but will reassess his options at the end of the season.
