Paul Pogba won’t captain United again

Paul Pogba has been told he won’t captain Manchester United again, as talk about his future at the club refuses to go away.

After a summer of transfer talk, which saw Pogba strongly linked with Barcelona with even some sources claiming terms were agreed between player and club.

United stood firm, but it remains to be seen if that stance will change give Barcelona remain keen and his former club Juventus want him back in Turin.

United boss Jose Mourinho confirmed Pogba would no longer be one of his vice-captains following his mistake against Wolves at the weekend.

“The only truth is that I made the decision for him not to be second captain any more but there is no fallout, no problem,” Mourinho said after United’s shock midweek League Cup loss to Derby.

“I am the manager I can make these decisions, a decision that I don’t have to explain.”

The odds on Pogba leaving continue to point to a departure although Bookmakers believe that Mourinho will be out first.

Paddy Power make it 1/3 that Mourinho departs Old Trafford first, while making it the same odds-on price that at least one of the duo will have left United by the start of next season.

It’s 2/1 that one of the feuding pair will leave by the end of the January transfer window, and just 3/1 that they’ll BOTH have left the club by the kick-off of the 2019/2020 season.

Spokesman Paddy Power said: “If I could give Mr Mourinho any advice, it would be that PP always wins. Oh, and to move out of that hotel. Seriously, that room service menu isn’t getting any better.

“Pogba, clearly, is the more valuable asset – though that might just mean they’re more likely to sell him. Personally, I’d flog the Pog, and then the use some of the cash to tell the limelight hog to jog.”
