I don't need the armband to be a leader, says Pogba

I don't need the armband to be a leader, says Pogba

The 25-year-old was at the heart of Didier Deschamps' triumphant side in Russian Federation but returned to a hard situation at United after being dropped from Jose Mourinho's starting XI towards the end of last season.

However, the midfielder, who is now spotting a new haircut, seems no longer interested, in seeking a move away from the Premier League club in January. "I'd like to do that", the midfielder added.

At the end of the day, the Red Devils boss informed Pogba that would never have the privilege to captain Manchester United again. I spoke with Hugo (Lloris), Blaise (Matuidi), (Raphael) Varane, to say that this World Cup we really had to put everything in place to win it.

Having joined up with France for their upcoming games, the 25-year-old was asked if he sees himself captaining his country in the future, and he responded by insisting that not all leaders necessarily wear the armband.

Pogba told L'Equipe: 'I have never played for France to be captain.

"You don't have to be captain in order to speak, a leader is not someone who has the armband", he is quoted as saying by The Mirror.

"I think that Jose Mourinho saw the same thing as me".

Mourinho threw on attackers with abandon, supporting his two strikers with three playmakers, Alexis Sanchez, Juan Mata, and a deep-lying Paul Pogba.

France and Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has told AFP in an interview that his worldwide teammates give him the freedom to express himself and be the team's leader.

"I've never been upset with journalists, it's just that I did not want to talk".

Pogba encouraged Mourhino to let United "attack, attack, attack" in a post-match interview with Sky Sports and was later stripped of the vice-captaincy by the Portuguese manager.

The World Cup victor suggested the team needed to "attack attack attack", especially when playing at Old Trafford if they are to mount any serious challenge for the title this season.
