Mourinho tips Pogba to become Man United captain

It’s a testament to how Paul Pogba has performed this season that you can say he is living up to his world record price tag.

He’s become Manchester United’s main man, often driving them on to victory in support of the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Pogba is the kind of signing that United have been crying out for, for years. Under Mourinho he looks to have the potential to become a Red Devils great and the Old Trafford boss certainly agrees.

The French international is still just 23, having plenty of time to grow into the shirt. He has been tipped to not only do that but also eventually go on to become Manchester United captain.

When asked whether Pogba has the chance of taking the armband one day, Mourinho (quoted by The Mirror) said:

I think he has. I think he has the charisma, the ambition, the mentality. He’s a good professional. Being so young and with so many ingredients, I think he can.

It’s a fantastic endorsement from a manager who has had some legendary captains in his team throughout his career.

Pogba will be hoping to write another chapter in his United story when the Red Devils host Liverpool at Old Trafford in a massive clash that could go a long way to deciding the top 4 positions at the end of the season.

A good performance against United’s bitter rivals will only endear him further with an already enraptured support.
