Manchester United's Paul Pogba

Manchester United's Paul Pogba

Pogba encouraged Mourhino to let United "attack, attack, attack" in a post-match interview with Sky Sports and was later stripped of the vice-captaincy by the Portuguese manager.

Manchester United supporters were elated with the performance of midfielder Paul Pogba, who became the catalyst of the club's 3-2 Premier League comeback win over Newcastle United on Saturday.

Sanchez, who endured a hard start to the new season, has scored three goals for United in all competitions so far.

"I think he has done it on objective, and I don't think that is right", Saha said at the AFDP Spirit of Soccer launch.

The 25-year-old midfielder played a big part in Les Bleus' campaign in Russian Federation, scoring a goal in the final as Didier Deschamps' side beat Croatia 4-2 to lift the coveted trophy.

Pogba insists he is the ideal go-between for the older players and younger members of Didier Deschamps' squad. We're striving now to get back to it, but as a manager you can't hide from the fact about what he's done. "That allows me to relay messages and have the chance to be heard", he said.

"Fortunately for me, you look at the best managers over the last 25-30 years".

Despite taking on a key leadership role at the World Cup, a growing rift between Pogba and Mourinho saw the France worldwide stripped of the United vice-captaincy last month.

Prior to the World Cup, Pogba had stated his ambition of stepping up his role within the France squad, and he was credited by teammates with having given a number of inspirational dressing room speeches during Les Bleus' summer triumph.

Yes, I think there are things that should not be done from the players' side and from the manager and above.

The France global believes he is capable of being a leader at United without having the captain's armband.

"For me, a leader isn't someone who wears something on his arm, who puts on the captain's armband".
