Express Sport understands Mourinho informed the squad on Tuesday that Pogba will never skipper the club again in an attempt to show his authority and remind the players that he is in charge.

The Portuguese manager has now given his verdict on Pogba and his vice-captaincy at Manchester United after the midfielder commented on the need for United to attack more after their draw at home to the Wolves.

The biggest shock came at Old Trafford on Tuesday as Derby knocked out Manchester United on penalties in a dramatic contest.

It's not just a single player, everyone is a part of the team.

Results could cost Mourinho his job long before the club have an opportunity of getting Pogba out of the building.

"I don't think they are getting the best out of Pogba but he has to do more himself", Redknapp continued.

"The players were happy with that decision and the reasons behind the manager's decision".

The France worldwide has chose to return to Turin, where he spent four seasons, winning four leagues, two cups and two Italian Super Cups, after clashing with United coach Jose Mourinho.

And he got away with a few nervy moments at Old Trafford, as Derby pulled off a brilliant upset.


And over the weekend, Pogba's error cost his team two points after the Red Devils for the umpteenth time, as they failed to grab all match points after battling Wolves to a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford.

Pogba greeted coach Michael Carrick with a handshake, walked past Mourinho and then shook the hand of another one of United's technical staff.

The 25-year-old was dispossessed in the move that led to Joao Moutinho's equaliser, with the midfielder saying afterwards that United should "attack, attack, attack".

The Pogba row overshadowed a superb achievement by Lampard, who only took his first managerial role at Derby in the close-season. "I have to play with a good team".

"Through those young mid-twenties, he upped my level and Chelsea's level".

After the match he said United should attack more.

Eight minutes later, Romero was dismissed for handling outside the box and Derby grabbed what they thought was the victor when United's substitute keeper Lee Grant parried a shot from Mason Mount and Jack Marriott nodded in the loose ball.

Only a stoppage time header from united substitute Marouane Fellaini had stopped them from victory.
