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.

The reported friction between Pogba and Mourinho has been a persistent sub-plot over the course of United's struggles, with the France midfielder at one stage claiming the team should "attack, attack, attack".

"I would never say it's me, it's the squad who put me in that position, who gave me the freedom to express myself".

The France worldwide has taken a fresh swipe at the Special One over losing the vice-captaincy at Old Trafford. Yes, I think there are things that should not be done from the players' side and from the manager and above.

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

"I guess this makes it easier for me to get adapted. But I hope with all my heart that it's one of the four, because there is [also] NG [N'Golo Kante]".
