Scholes: Pogba Should Have Been Captain From The Off

Scholes: Pogba Should Have Been Captain From The Off

Premier League side Manchester United have denied reports claiming club boss Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba had a big bust-up as "absolute nonsense", insisting the pair have a good relationship.

"I didn't ask him, I'm not going to ask him".

"I'm here for two years and a couple of months and the only player that was fined was Anthony Martial, so it is not easy to be fined here, so you have to ask him".

'The second reaction is because I am in the movie I could ask for royalties.

Scholes agreed Pogba has not performed at the level expected of him often enough - United manager Jose Mourinho dropped him for the Champions League Last 16 clash with Sevilla last season - and said the captaincy could be the answer.

The latest of which saw Manchester United front up to the media to deny an alleged "bust up" between the pair following Pogba's remarks that he can not freely express his opinion in fear of being handed a fine. "When he says he did it for the fans and for the team is exactly what I want, is exactly what I demand from my players", he further added.

Google didn't include earbuds with the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL previous year , so the change is very welcome. The smartphone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor coupled with Adreno 630 GPU.

"We thought, I think it was before the game against Basel, Pogba is a young guy, with a good personality, made in the academy, normally a starting line-up player, so he has the conditions to be a captain in the future".

The report says that although Mourinho was keen to bring the Sandro in as his new left-back this season, he was forced to end his pursuit as United chiefs didn't want to break their strict budget. I want him to play well, to play for the team, for the fans and that's what he did.

Mourinho is still without Valencia and Matic against Chris Hughton's side but there is hope the pair could be fit to return against Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford on August 27.

"I am very confident but if he doesn't that's football", said Mourinho.

"He has the right to a bad match".

"Is he captain? No, the captain is [Antonio] Valencia". "If he stayed here last season probably what is happening now to him could probably happen one season ago. 'But one day when Antonio comes back, Antonio will be the captain again".
