It’s Paul over

Paul Pogba has been stripped of Manchester United captaincy duties after telling Jose Mourinho he wants to join Barcelona.

The France midfielder has led United three times this season, but Mourinho believes it is no longer acceptable for a player pushing for a move to wear the armband.

The squad were told of the decision at their Carrington training base hours before the Carabao Cup defeat by Derby. Pogba watched from the stands as his team-mates were hit by a cup giantkilling.

‘The only truth is that I made the decision for Paul not to be the second captain any more,’ said Mourinho. ‘It was the same person who decided Paul was the second captain. No fallout at all, just decisions I do not have to explain.’

Paul Pogba has told Jose Mourinho that he wants to quit Manchester United as he tries to force through a move to Barcelona.
