Manchester United consider Paul Pogba as permanent captain

Despite Paul Pogba’s great desire to quit Manchester United, the club is considering to appoint the France international as their permanent captain.

Ashley Young will wear the armband during United’s pre-season tour but Solskjaer admits that Pogba is a candidate to take up the role for the new season. Asked if Pogba is being considered, Solskjaer replied: “Yes. I don’t think that needs explaining. We’ll discuss that later on.

“We’ve got quite a few possibilities there and when the season starts we’ll announce it,’ said the United manager. Of course we’ll have a good assessment, see how pre-season goes. But, as you saw, Ashley will wear it when he’s playing until we decide on someone.”

Solskjaer’s side will play Leeds United in their next match on Wednesday.
