Pogba’s situation at Old Trafford has been a constant source of debate in the last few months after he struggled to produce consistent performances for the Red Devils.
Pogba was in fine form for France as he helped his country to win the World Cup in Russia this summer, but most Manchester United fans would agree that he is yet to hit top form under Mourinho at Old Trafford.
There were reports of a fresh bust-up between the pair this week, but Mourinho has insisted those claims are untrue, although he did confirm that Pogba is no longer the club’s vice-captain.
Speaking to Sky Sports on Tuesday night, Mourinho said: “The only truth [to the reports] is that I made the decision for Paul not to be the second captain anymore.
“But no fallout, no problems at all. The same person that decided Paul is not the second captain anymore is the same person that decided Paul was the second captain – myself.
“I’m the manager I can make these decisions, no fall out at all, no problems at all. Just a decision I do not have to explain.”
Mourinho was talking to the media after watching his side be dumped out of the League Cup at the hands of Championship side Derby County.
The Red Devils were beaten on penalties by Frank Lampard’s men after they were held to a 2-2 draw in front of their home fans at Old Trafford.
Manchester United will return to Premier League action on Saturday lunchtime with a trip to West Ham United.
