Man Utd: Jose Mourinho says Paul Pogba will not captain club again

José Mourinho has told his Manchester United players that Paul Pogba will never captain the team again.

Mourinho informed the squad of the news at Carrington on Tuesday, three days after United's disappointing draw with Wolves, after which Pogba criticised Mourinho's tactics.

Manchester United crashed out of the Carabao Cup in a penalty shoot-out to Derby with Pogba watching from the stands.

The squad, which includes World Cup victor Paul Pogba and David de Gea, is said to have become a source of frustration for Mourinho following a lack of transfer activity.

"The only truth is I made the decision of Paul not to be the second captain anymore", added Mourinho. "Just one decision which I don't have to explain".

The night got off to the flawless start for United, though, as Juan Mata found the net in the 3rd minute but Harry Wilson's stunning free-kick followed by Marriott's 85th-minute effort gave Derby the advantage at the death.

Phil Jones finally missed from the spot after 15 successful penalties in a high quality shootout.

"Every now and then he can still create something and he'll put something in the box - but I thought that the fact that he hadn't had a rest in nine seasons, this is the first rest he's had in nine seasons".

"I can't tell you because I'm a player", he said. But these are unusual times at Old Trafford for Jose Mourinho.

"It was the easiest selection I have had, the players were superb against Brentford and they deserved the chance to play at Old Trafford".

"I am trying to build a group to be successful and nights like this are incredible".
