Jose Mourinho has claimed that Paul Pogba has the potential to captain Manchester United one day.

The French midfielder has been in fine form for the Red Devils in recent weeks after initially making a slow start to life back at Old Trafford following his move from Juventus in the summer window.

Pogba arrived back at Old Trafford to much fanfare after Manchester United parted with a world-record transfer fee to bring him to the club from Juventus.

The France international has earned plenty of praise for his performances in recent weeks for Mourinho’s men.

And the Manchester United manager feels that Pogba has the ability to follow in the footsteps of some of the Red Devils’ top captains of the past.

Speaking in an interview with Sky Sports, Mourinho said: “I think he has the charisma, the ambition, the mentality.

“He is a good professional. Being so young and with so many ingredients, I think he can.”
