Pogba May Become Manchester United Captain” – Mourinho Says

Manchester United coach, Jose Mourinho, has said Paul Pogba might captain the club in future.

Pogba rejoined United last summer for a world-record £89 million fee and has found his form recently after a slow start.

Wayne Rooney is the current skipper of the team, but is no longer first choice.

Asked if Pogba could lead the club, Mourinho said: “I think he has the potential. I think he has the charisma. The ambition. The mentality. He is a good professional. Being so young and with so many ingredients, I think he can.”

Mourinho was,however, careful not to put extra pressure on Pogba ahead of Sunday’s showdown against Liverpool at Old Trafford.

“It is not fair to say a player has to be dominant,” he said.

“He is playing amazingly well, no doubts about it, but the team is also playing well. I am not expecting the team to play really bad and for one player to have all the weight on his shoulders, not Paul, not anyone. I expect the team to play well and Paul to be at the level he is playing now regularly.”
