Jose Mourinho Tells Paul Pogba He Won't Captain United Again

Following Tuesday's penalty shoot-out loss to Championship side Derby County in the EFL Cup - a match the rested Pogba watched from the stands - Mourinho confirmed he had stripped him of United's vice-captaincy.

"The only truth is I made the decision of Paul not to be the second captain anymore. The same person who takes the decision to make him second captain makes this decision now". To have the personality to step up and take penalties and perform the way they did, I'm just a proud manager, they were great.

In an Instagram video which has since been deleted, Pogba was seen joking around with teammates Luke Shaw and Andreas Pereira during the match at Old Trafford.

Perhaps fueled by the situation, Pogba, the day after Guardiola's comments, scores twice to lead Man United's sensational comeback from 2-0 down to beat Man City and postpone the club's eventual title celebrations.

World Cup victor Pogba, 25, was told of the decision in the build-up to Tuesday's Carabao Cup exit to Derby.

While Mourinho was busy bickering with Pogba in front of the cameras at Carrington, Zidane was all smiles as he and wife Veronique enjoyed a pleasant promenade around London.

Mourinho has stripped Pogba of the club's vice-captaincy in the wake of some outspoken interviews from the France worldwide midfielder - although he maintains there has been no fallout.

The 25-year-old infuriated Mourinho after the Wolves match when he insisted United should "attack, attack, attack" in what was perceived as a dig at the manager's conservative tactics.

Manager Jose Mourinho had used his programme notes to issue a warning to his players following the weekend draw with Wolves that "95 percent isn't enough when others give 101 percent".

The latest clash between the two figures comes after Mourinho stated that he had removed Pogba as the "second captain" at the club behind Antonio Valencia.

"When you play, you do the best that you can, and when you speak, you have to be careful what you say".
