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.

So I don't think it was appropriate."Following Pogba's critique, media reports circulated that Mourinho was on borrowed time as United coach".

According to a UK Sun report, Mourinho, who was in Russian Federation during the mundial warned that the Frenchman might not be focused after helping Les Bleus claim their second World Cup silverware.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has leapt to the defence of Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho stressing he is still the right man for the job whilst admonishing those under him.

"I've never played for the France team to be captain, already being here is a big thing for me" Pogba said. It puts pressure on the manager.

"With my age, 25 years old, I'm between the two sets of players, the oldest and the youngest".

"That allows me to relay messages and have the chance to be heard". "This is my opinion and I would have said that to him, I would say 'No, that's not something to say because you are not the manager'".

Despite taking on a key leadership role at the World Cup, a growing rift between Pogba and Mourinho saw the France global stripped of the United vice-captaincy last month.

"He's one of a number of United players that, once Mourinho goes, will have to be outed by the new regime", he said.

'You don't have to be captain in order to speak, a leader is not someone who has the armband. If you were running a 100m race against friends of a relatively equal ability, you will, I guarantee, run faster than if you just did it on your own.
