Pogba says he doesn’t need armband to be leader

After five seasons in Ukraine, the 25-year-old is still getting to know the Premier League and has set his sights on playing a more central role after the global break. "I'd like to do that", the midfielder added.

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba insists that he does not need the captain's armband to be heard in the dressing room.

Pogba insists that he does not need the captain's armband to be heard, however, and he believes that he is at a ideal age to act as a dressing-room leader.

"For me, a leader isn't someone who wears something on his arm, who puts on the captain's armband".

'As a leader you can talk on the pitch but I've seen leaders who didn't necessarily talk'.

"I think that (the row) is exaggerated".

Paul Pogba is the most high-profile player in the United squad, but he has so far not been able to gain the respect that Ibrahimovic earned instantly because of his persona and career achievements. 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.

"There is no issue with Paul".

Former Manchester United striker Louis Saha has criticised compatriot Paul Pogba for putting pressure on manager Jose Mourinho after claiming that his side should attack more following their 1-1 draw with Wolves.

Jose Mourinho last month stripped Pogba of the United vice-captaincy amid reports of frosty relations between the two during the Red Devils' hard start to the 2018-19 season. "I don't want to be mixed up with anything and to interfere with any player's relationship with their coach", Deschamps summed up.

It seems Pogba's comments acted as the last straw for Mourinho who reportedly told him in front of other team mates during a training session that he would be stripped off captain duties.
