Jose Mourinho Desperate For January Signing

'He's so good', Manchester United delighted with midfielder's performance vs Newcastle United

Pogba should have kept views to himself - Saha

The subject of Pogba's reportedly fraught relationship with United boss Jose Mourinho was strictly off the table for the interview at France's worldwide training base.

However, speaking ahead of France's friendly fixture against Iceland and Uefa Nations League showdown against Germany, Pogba stated that he does not need captain's armband to be a leader.

And since joining LA Galaxy, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has scored 21 goals in 25 games for the club, and according to the report by ESPN, Jose Mourinho wants to bring him back to United next year.

"I think he (Pogba) has done it on goal, and I don't think that is right", Saha, 40, said."It's the wrong communication, it puts pressure on the manager. with those talks you should do it in the dressing room with your manager".

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". "I would never say it's me, it's the squad who put me in that position, who gave me the freedom to express myself".

Paris redefined this goal, demanding efforts to limit warming to well below 2 degrees and pursue efforts to limit it to 1 .5. To get there, emissions would have to be cut by 45 per cent from 2010 levels by 2030, with further action required by 2050.

'You don't have to be captain in order to speak, a leader is not someone who has the armband.

Pogba insists he is the ideal go-between for the older players and younger members of Didier Deschamps' squad.

It appears that the players in the United dressing room have become exasperated and alienated by Mourinho's divisive and confrontational style of management. You should be like "I should score, score, score".

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

Lloris is the other member of Didier Deschamps' triumphant squad nominated while Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema, an outcast at worldwide level, made it a seventh Frenchman on list for the award.
