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

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

Pogba has made no references to United in his media comments this week, but a former France World Cup victor has suggested he has been a little too vocal in his public comments this season.

Mourinho's public confirmation that he had erased Pogba from his list of vice-captains highlighted the discord between the United boss and his club record signing, but the midfielder has now offered up what will be viewed as his first public comments on leadership.

Mourinho last month revealed Pogba would no longer be considered vice-captain of the club despite having already worn the captain's armband three times this season in the absence of Antonio Valencia.

Pogba told L'Equipe: 'I have never played for France to be captain. I spoke with Hugo (Lloris), Blaise (Matuidi), (Raphael) Varane, to say that this World Cup we really had to put everything in place to win it. They gave me confidence as well.

Pogba insists that he does not need the captain's armband to be heard, however, and he believes that he is at a ideal age to act as a dressing-room leader. The 25-year-old's performances have been inconsistent and so while some performances have been excellent, others have been poor.

Pogba was one of six players in Didier Deschamps' squad to be nominated for the Ballon d'Or on Monday, and he believes the prize should go to one of his France teammates.

"That allows me to relay messages and have the chance to be heard". Yes, I think there are things that should not be done from the players' side and from the manager and above. "But I hope with all my heart that it's one of the four, because there is [also] NG [N'Golo Kante]".
