Mourinho: Pogba Is No Longer Vice-Captain

With reports suggesting that Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba fell out again this past weekend, the Portuguese has confirmed the Frenchman is no longer the club's second captain.

Modric Comments On Beating Messi & CR7 To The Best Award

Following United's 1-1 draw with Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday, the Frenchman caused a stir when he publicly criticised his team's approach to the game.

Reports then suggested that an angry Mourinho told Pogba that, because of his comments, he would never captain the side again.

After the Red Devils lost on penalties to Derby County in the EFL Cup on Tuesday night, the Portuguese was pestered with questions about his relationship with the Frenchman, who was not named in the squad for the cup fixture, and Mourinho admitted he has stripped Pogba of his role as vice-captain.

"The only truth is I made the decision of Paul not to be the second captain anymore," he said, according to The Statesman.

"I am the manager, I make these decisions, no fallout at all, no problem at all. The same person who takes the decision to make him second captain makes this decision now."
