Jose Mourinho's touchline comments may be investigated by lip reader

Jose Mourinho's touchline comments may be investigated by lip reader

Jose Mourinho last month stripped Pogba of the United vice-captaincy amid reports of frosty relations between the two during the Red Devils' hard start to the 2018-19 season.

"I would have said "no, that's not something to say because you're not the manager".

Manchester United's Paul Pogba has said he has struggled to focus following France's World Cup win - but has insisted he can still lead the club despite being dropped from vice-captaincy duties.

Pogba believes being in the World Cup-winning France team is in itself a big achievement and he never plays to get the armband. They gave me confidence as well.

"You don't have to be captain in order to speak, a leader is not someone who has the armband", he is quoted as saying by The Mirror.




Pogba told L'Equipe: 'I have never played for France to be captain.

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

"I think he (Pogba) has done it (public comments) on goal, and I don't think that is right", said Saha, speaking at the AFDP Spirit of Soccer launch. Some things happened, and I think that like often, we make a big deal of maybe not so much.

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously had reported that the Jose Mourinho-Paul Pogba saga continues to thicken as the Manchester United manager reportedly told his star Frenchman he would never captain the side again. "I said to myself that it is useless to speak". "Whether it be "Grizou" [Antoine Griezmann], Kylian [Mbappe] or Raph [Varane], they deserve it a lot more than me".

Unlike in recent matches, United showed a better intent in attacking the opposition during the second period but it could be said that there were left with no choice after the shambles before the first half.
