Manager Jose Mourinho has confirmed Paul Pogba is no longer Manchester United’s vice-captain but insisted there has been no fall-out between the pair.
Reports emerged ahead of United’s shock defeat to Derby in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday night that Pogba had been informed in front of teammates that would not skipper the team again.
And Mourinho confirmed the news after United’s defeat to Derby County in the third round of the Carabao Cup, although he stressed that a dispute between the two was not the reason behind the decision.
He told Sky Sports: “The only truth is that I made the decision of Paul not to be the second captain anymore but no fall-out, no problems at all.
“The same person that decides that Paul is not the second captain anymore is the same person who decides that Paul was the second captain. Myself. I am the manager, I can make these decisions.
“No fall-out at all, no problems at all, just one decision that I don’t have to explain.”
