"You don't have to be captain in order to speak, a leader is not someone who has the armband".

Paul Pogba of Manchester United has had a very public falling out with manager Jose Mourinho.

Former Manchester United striker Louis Saha has criticised compatriot Paul Pogba for putting pressure on manager Jose Mourinho after claiming that his side should attack more following their 1-1 draw with Wolves.

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 is said they do not regard Pogba as a leader, with the France worldwide instead failing to earn the same respect as his two former team-mates.

Mourinho said at the time: 'The only truth is that I made the decision of Paul not to be the second captain any more but no fall-out, no problems at all.

Having left Manchester to join the France squad for Les Bleus' forthcoming friendly against Iceland and Nations League encounter with Germany, the 25-year-old refuted an interest in being the national team's skipper. "That allows me to relay messages and have the chance to be heard", he said.

"As a leader you can talk on the pitch but I've seen leaders who didn't necessarily talk".

He was looked upon as the "cool older brother" at United, even by the likes of Pogba - the two players are both represented by agent Mino Raiola, so were already close - and his departure has created a void unforeseen by Mourinho. "This is my opinion and I would have said that to him, I would say "no, that's not something to say because you are not the manager".

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