Ex-Man Utd striker Crooks: Mourinho should apologise to Pogba

The best replacement for Mourinho might be someone the betting markets aren’t even considering

"That allows me to relay messages and have the chance to be heard", he said. You should be like "I should score, score, score".

Barcelona star Jordi Alba could be set for a move to Manchester United, if Zinedine Zidane takes over in the managerial hot seat from under-pressure Jose Mourinho.

"I think the World Cup is the flawless habitat for a player like him to give the best. I was really determined".

"I could say what I felt, give messages and pass them on from the older players to the younger ones".

"He [Deschamps] gave me good advice not to block this relationship that you have with journalists, the world, the fans", he said.

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

Saha added that he has been disturbed by some of the exchanges that have taken place at his former club but that he hopes that lingering issues will be resolved at Old Trafford.

Hugo Lloris lifted the trophy in Moscow in mid-July as Didier Deschamps' captain, and Pogba said he would continue being an influential figure in the squad even if he never replaced the Tottenham goalkeeper. And now I think I'm a little more open, I express myself a little more.

However, speaking ahead of France's friendly fixture against Iceland and Uefa Nations League showdown against Germany, Pogba stated that he does not need captain's armband to be a leader. "You don't have to be captain in order to speak, a leader is not someone who has the armband".

"As a leader you can talk on the pitch but I've seen leaders who didn't necessarily talk", the midfielder submitted. "But I hope with all my heart that it's one of the four, because there is [also] NG [N'Golo Kante]".
