I don't need the armband to be a leader, says Pogba

I don't need the armband to be a leader, says Pogba

Paul Pogba has suggested that he will continue to air his thoughts in public, despite being stripped of Manchester United's vice-captaincy by Jose Mourinho.

Asked whether he would want an official leadership role for France, Pogba gave the example of Andrea Pirlo at Juventus as a captain who was not the loudest voice in the dressing room.

United's hard start in the Premier League all seems a long away from France's glory in Russian Federation, but reunited again with his France teammates, Pogba was happy to recall that defender Adil Rami had described him as the team's "real leader" at the World Cup. "It's the squad that put me in that position, who gave me the freedom to express myself, and gave me the confidence to". It all began like that, from our training camp. Yes, I think there are things that should not be done from the players' side and from the manager and above. "I was really determined".

But should the 49-year-old opt to take a job outside of the Premier League, he would still be entitled to negotiate a full compensation package with Chelsea.

The France worldwide has taken a fresh swipe at the Special One over losing the vice-captaincy at Old Trafford. As a leader you can talk on the pitch, but I have seen leaders who do not necessarily speak. "That allows me to relay messages and have the chance to be heard", he said.

"I think he (Pogba) has done it on goal, and I don't think that is right", Saha, 40, said."It's the wrong communication, it puts pressure on the manager. with those talks you should do it in the dressing room with your manager".

"It's all I hope for whatever happens, because there are a lot of them who deserve it", he said.

"I don't think it's about us getting the best out of him. But I hope with all my heart that it's one of the four, because there is [also] NG [N'Golo Kante]".
