Paul Pogba has claimed he does not need to be the captain of a side to express his feelings and help the team.
It comes on the back of being stripped of the vice-captaincy at Man United. He was also told that as long as Jose Mourinho remains in charge at the club, he would never wear the armband again.
However, Pogba has noted that he’s never skippered France – and that hasn’t stopped him being a leader.
The Express report he said: “I’ve never played in the France team to be captain, being here is already a big thing for me.
“You don’t have to be captain in order to speak, a leader is not someone who has the armband.
“As a leader you can talk on the pitch but I’ve seen leaders who didn’t necessarily talk.”
