Why I stripped Paul Pogba of vice-captaincy – Jose Mourinho reveals

Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba

Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has finally explained why he stripped Paul Pogba of the club’s assistant captain position.

Mourinho said that he and his coaching crew discovered that the Frenchman was just a player and not a captain.

The former Chelsea boss said this while justifying stripping the midfielder of the vice-captaincy during his press conference on Friday ahead of United’s clash with West Ham on Saturday.

He said, “I explain very detailed to the people that have to know in detail, which is the squad and especially Paul, so Paul and the other players in the squad know in detail the reason why myself and my coaching staff, we decide to do that and I always analyze a player as a player when a player is captain, I analyze the player by the player and captain perspective.

“And after weeks of analyzing and changing opinions with my coaching staff we made the decision Paul is just a player and not a captain. Decision made.

“I informed the player and other players and when I was asked before the match on Tuesday I confirmed and now I confirm and now end of the story.” (sic).
