Pogba In Contention To Be Named Manchester United Captain (Sun)

Paul pogba is in contention to become Manchester United midfielder reports the Sun

Pogba seemed to be the skipper of United this season until he questioned the tactics of his manager and the armband was taken away from him by the angry mourinho who was sacked last year december.

Paul Pogba was told by Jose Mourinho that he was not fit to captain Manchester United – but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sees the midfielder as a leader and would have no hesitation in handing him the armband.

Following Mourinho's departure, Pogba is reportedly said to be in contention to wear the armband again with new interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer a big fan of the former Juventus man.

Ashley Young have held the armband in the entirety of the season with reports saying Antonia Valencia, who is the recognised captain  is set to leave the club next summer after United declined to extend his deal. With that in mind, Solskjaer who have onced praised Pogba's leadership attributes would offer pogba the chance to wear the armband.

Pogba has been reborn under Solskjaer and has displayed leadership qualities, with video showing him geeing up teammates before the Boxing Day win against Huddersfield – the second in their current run of seven straight wins in all competitions under the caretaker boss.

Asked if Pogba would be in contention to captain the side moving forwards, his former reserve team boss said:
Definitely, yeah, because I know the boy from before and he is a leader. 
He’s a character, he influences people and you’ve seen the videos from France, and he cares and he really wants to be successful. 
He knows he can’t do it by himself. It’s a team game and he’s a character that brings so many good things with him when he’s enjoying himself, I have to say. 
You see the personality. He’d love playing football, he’s a larger-than-life character, that’s just the way he is. 
When the performances come as well, that marries together as a good leader and you see what it meant to him winning the World Cup in what France broadcast. So, for me, yes, he’s captain material.
Valencia have been struggling with ban injury since the beginning of the season. He has played just 5 times but reports suggests he will leave the club on free transfer with his deal expiring by then.

Pogba's off-field profile has attracted criticism, as has his deliberately slow run-up when he has taken penalties this season.

None of this seems to affect the midfielder and since Solskjaer's arrival, his performances have improved - scoring nine goals in 14 games since the Norwegian replaced Mourinho on 19 December
