Paul Pogba has appointed Manchester United captain against Leicester

MANCHESTER, England – Paul Pogba has been named captain of Manchester United for the first Premier League game against Leicester. The Frenchman returned to Carrington only Monday after his break after the World Cup. José Mourinho told a press conference that he had been impressed with the 25-year-old during his four days of training and the midfielder was rewarded with a start against Leicester at Old Trafford in the early evening of the season. Pogba was also delivered to the captain's band with Antonio Valencia still missing with a calf injury.Paul Pogba heats up in view of the Manchester United Premier League match against Leicester City.

Sources told ESPN FC that Pogba was not satisfied with some of his manager's comments during the US tour and was willing to consider a move to Barcelona until United made it clear that it was not for sale at no price. It is the eighth time Pogba has captained United since he returned to the club from Juventus with a £ 89.3 million deal in 2016. Valencia was chosen to lead the team more often during the two years of Mourinho, taking the band 42 times.
