Scholes: Pogba Should Have Been Captain From The Off

Paul Pogba Jose Mourinho

Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho has confirmed that the French worldwide, Paul Pogba will remain the club's captain for their Premier League game against Brighton on Sunday. 'I can not demand more from him, I can not ask more from him, he came here on a Monday, trained three days, I asked for his support for his contribution in an important match for us when the team had difficulties.

"So you have to ask him". "I'm here for two years and a couple of months and the only player that was fined was Anthony Martial, so it's not easy to be fined here". I didn't ask him, I'm not going to ask him. "But if they send me one of the shirts they had in the tunnel when we played there, the shirts that were saying 'we did it on derby day.' If they send me one of these shirts, I give up about the royalties". Speaking during his pre-match press conference ahead of the Red Devils' trip to Brighton on Sunday, Mourinho also confirmed that Paul Pogba will wear the armband until the Ecuadorian resumes his position in the starting lineup.

United paid a fee of £89m for Pogba in 2016 when they signed him from Juventus and Mino Raiola received around £15m for the transfer (h/t Metro).

We want him to stay, he wants to stay, so when a player is not on the market, the value is zero, ' said Mourinho.

United have lost their last two league games at Brighton, including a 1-0 defeat at the Amex Stadium in May. I repeat: "I want him to work the way he is doing and play the way he is doing and that's the only thing that matters".

However, Mourinho had nothing to do with it and he maintained that he has been working well, playing well and has been doing everything for the team and the fans.
