Saha chastises Pogba for ‘attack comments

Manchester United's Paul Pogba shakes hands with Jose Mourinho after being substituted

Former Manchester United striker Louis Saha has criticised compatriot Paul Pogba for putting pressure on manager Jose Mourinho after claiming that his side should attack more following their 1-1 draw with Wolves.

"It really pleased me to hear Adil say that", Pogba told AFP.

Pogba has made no references to United in his media comments this week, but a former France World Cup victor has suggested he has been a little too vocal in his public comments this season. Myself. I am the manager, I can make these decisions. They gave me confidence as well.

"I couldn't have done it without them".

The 25-year-old was at the heart of Didier Deschamps' triumphant side in Russian Federation but returned to a hard situation at United after being dropped from Jose Mourinho's starting XI towards the end of last season. "This is my opinion and I would have said that to him, I would say 'No, that's not something to say because you are not the manager'".

The World Cup holders take on the likes of Iceland (October 11) and Germany (October 16) in the next few days before the players return to their respective clubs.

Despite taking on a key leadership role at the World Cup, a growing rift between Pogba and Mourinho saw the France worldwide stripped of the United vice-captaincy last month.

He said the France captaincy was not one of his main goals.

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

'As a leader you can talk on the pitch but I've seen leaders who didn't necessarily talk'.

He cited former Italy midfielder Andrea Pirlo, a teammate of Pogba's at Juventus, as someone who could be relied upon to "show you the way on the pitch".

Pogba has joined up with the France squad this week and was asked about the possibility of captaining his country in the near future.
