Saha chastises Pogba for ‘attack comments

The Portuguese tactician removed Pogba as vice-captain following the midfielder's public criticism of his tactics two weeks ago, and many believe the Frenchman's latest comments could be seen as yet another jab at his manager. Maybe you didn't watch the last game because I saw a great Paul Pogba.

The reported friction between Pogba and Mourinho has been a persistent sub-plot over the course of United's struggles, with the France midfielder at one stage claiming the team should "attack, attack, attack".

Asked whether he would want an official leadership role for France, Pogba gave the example of Andrea Pirlo at Juventus as a captain who was not the loudest voice in the dressing room.

Barcelona star Jordi Alba could be set for a move to Manchester United, if Zinedine Zidane takes over in the managerial hot seat from under-pressure Jose Mourinho. "I would never say it's me, it's the squad who put me in that position, who gave me the freedom to express myself".

"I think the World Cup is the ideal habitat for a player like him to give the best".

The 25-year-old midfielder played a big part in Les Bleus' campaign in Russian Federation, scoring a goal in the final as Didier Deschamps' side beat Croatia 4-2 to lift the coveted trophy. As a leader you can talk on the pitch, but I have seen leaders who do not necessarily speak.

"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.

"I've never played in the France team to be captain, being here is already a big thing for me".

"I would have said "no, that's not something to say because you're not the manager". "But I hope with all my heart that it's one of the four, because there is [also] NG [N'Golo Kante]".
