José Mourinho has told Paul Pogba that he will never captain Manchester United again, according to reports.

He told Sky Sports: "The only truth is that I made the decision of Pogba not to be the second captain anymore".

"But no fall-out. No problems at all".

"The person who made the decision to be second captain was also me. No problems. Just one decision that I don't have to explain".

According to the Telegraph, the decision comes after the France global midfielder publicly criticised his manager's tactics last weekend when he told reporters that he believes his sides should be allowed to attack more after they slipped to a disappointing 1-1 draw at Old Trafford against newly-promoted Wolves in the Premier League.

Pogba caused controversy after the opening-day win over Leicester by suggesting he would be fined if he said what he wanted about his situation at United.

Police are urging anyone who locates strawberries containing the needles to contact Policelink for further advice on 131 444. Queensland chief health officer Dr Jeanette Young has advised consumers to take care when consuming the fruit.

He has indicated privately he will not look to force a transfer in January but will reassess his options at the end of the season.

Pogba was not named in the squad for Tuesday's League Cup clash with Derby, but Mourinho confirmed he had been rested along with a number of other first-team regulars including David de Gea rather than dropped.

And while Mourinho avoided criticising his players directly after the match, his words will hardly inject Jones or fellow centre-back Eric Bailly with confidence.

United manager Jose Mourinho said he felt his team were in difficulty once the shootout got down to his defenders.

"We are at home and we should play much better against Wolves. I don't blame a player missing in penalties because I knew if it went in the direction".
