Paul Pogba: 'You do not have to be captain to speak'

The best replacement for Mourinho might be someone the betting markets aren’t even considering

"I think he has done it on goal, and I don't think that is right", he said.

While he has been told by United not to speak to the UK media for the foreseeable future, the midfielder has spoken to the French media while he was away on worldwide duty and was asked whether he had an ambition to lead the France team.

"Fortunately Paul Pogba, oblivious to Mourinho's continual rantings, took the game by the scruff of the neck, probing and driving his team to victory".

Mourinho made a series of comments to camera as he headed towards the tunnel after Manchester United's 3-2 win over Newcastle on Saturday.

Perisic was high prospect in United manager, Jose Mourinho's transfer list in 2017 and had been identified as the ideal winger to supply striker, Romelu Lukaku with service from wide areas.

"I can't pick out one of them". Yes, I think there are things that should not be done from the players' side and from the manager and above.

"When I see how Paul behaves towards his current club situation some may say that he's done everything he could mentally and when it comes to his individual performances to help the club", noted the Les Bleus tactician, who was quick to add. As a leader you can talk on the pitch, but I have seen leaders who do not necessarily speak.

"I could say what I felt, give messages and pass them on from the older players to the younger ones". He will be there on the pitch and show you the way.

"I'm not going to get into it, whether it's (Antoine) Griezmann, Kylian (Mbappe) or Raphael who deserve it much more than me".

Hugo Lloris lifted the trophy in Moscow in mid-July as Didier Deschamps' captain, and Pogba said he would continue being an influential figure in the squad even if he never replaced the Tottenham goalkeeper.
