Paul Pogba has revealed that he will continue to air his thoughts in public, despite being stripped of Manchester United’s vice-captaincy by manager Jose Mourinho.
Paul Pogba was informed last month that he will never skipper Manchester United again after openly criticising his manager’s tactics.
Pogba insists that he does not need the captain’s armband to be heard, however, and he believes that he is at a perfect age to act as a dressing-room leader.
“You don’t have to be captain in order to speak, a leader is not someone who has the armband,” he is quoted as saying by The Mirror.
“As a leader you can talk on the pitch but I’ve seen leaders who didn’t necessarily talk. With my age, 25 years old, I’m between the two sets of players, the oldest and the youngest. That allows me to relay messages and have the chance to be heard.”
