  • The best replacement for Mourinho might be someone the betting markets aren’t even considering

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.

However, speaking ahead of France's friendly fixture against Iceland and Uefa Nations League showdown against Germany, Pogba stated that he does not need captain's armband to be a leader. Some things happened, and I think that like often, we make a big deal of maybe not so much.

"For example, [Pogba's former Juventus team-mate Andrea] Pirlo is a leader, but he will not speak a lot in the dressing room".

'You do not have to be a captain to speak.

"For me, a leader isn't someone who wears something on his arm, who puts on the captain's armband".

"The armband has never been a goal".

Manchester United's Paul Pogba has said he has struggled to focus following France's World Cup win - but has insisted he can still lead the club despite being dropped from vice-captaincy duties.

The tall midfielder, said to be unsettled and chasing a move to Barcelona after being at loggerheads with manager Mourinho for the past year, has once again shown when it comes to being flashy on and off the pitch, there are few who can match him.

"Because otherwise you can have this image, 'Ah, he does not want to talk because he's upset, ' when you are not at all".

Los Blancos won an unprecedented three-straight Champions League titles during his reign, but fell short of a significant La Liga challenge in his final season.

"The coach spoke to me, he helped me with that".

Mourinho said at the time: 'The only truth is that I made the decision of Paul not to be the second captain any more but no fall-out, no problems at all. And now I think I'm a little more open, I express myself a little more.
