"I don't think Antonio will play in the next match so [Pogba] will be captain again". However, a pre-season calf injury ruled the 33-year-old out for United's season opener against Liecester and Pogba was handed the captain's armband for that game.

Jose Mourinho has denied ever having a bust-up with Paul Pogba, insisting he has never been so happy with the player as he is now.

The argument between Pogba and Mourinho, which concluded with the coach telling the player: "If he wants to leave, make him ask for it" has now seen the door closed on a possible departure. I'm not going to ask him.

Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho has confirmed that the French global, Paul Pogba will remain the club's captain for their Premier League game against Brighton on Sunday. His contribution to the team's attacking play is second to none as the prolific German has scored three goals and three assists in his last seven PL appearances at the Amex Stadium.

Despite talk of moves to Barcelona and Juventus last week, Paul Pogba remains a Manchester United player.

"I don't know", he said. "I repeat I want him to work the way he is doing and to play the way he is doing and, for me, that's the only thing that matters".

After a strong showing in the World Cup and United's opening fixture, Pogba has set a standard which Mourinho claims he is confident the midfielder will maintain - although he will have no problem if not.

"I just think he's a very high-profile manager". "If his objective is to play for the team, for the fans, if this is the objective, he has the right for a bad match".

Zinedine Zidane is reportedly interested in a management role in the Premier League, with Manchester United his destination of choice, but some of the Red Devils' fan base have jumped to the support of their current boss. If anything, their home form has been central to their staying afloat in 2017/18 and it will most certainly come in handy again this campaign.

"We thought [about Pogba]: he's a young guy, good personality, made in the academy, normally a starting player, he has conditions to be a captain in future".
