Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho given vote of confidence by Ed Woodward

"That's Old Trafford", Pogba told reporters.

The 25-year-old France global is one of a number of regulars left out of the team for Tuesday's League Cup encounter with Derby County.

Following his side's 1-1 draw with Wolverhampton Wanderers, Pogba appeared to criticise Mourinho's tactics during the game, insisting the team should "attack, attack, attack" when playing at Old Trafford.

It's not the first time Pogba's comments have riled Mourinho this season.

The report suggests that the Barcelona scouts will be watching Paul Pogba's every game until the end of the season and they were even present for Manchester United's Champions League clash vs Young Boys last week.

The France worldwide captained the side in the Premier League openers against Leicester and Brighton in the absence of Antonio Valencia, just as he did in last week's Champions League win at Young Boys.

He has apparently told Paul Pogba that he will never again captain the club.

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

Express Sport understands the World Cup victor is interested in a return to Juventus, from whom United signed him.

There will be, it seems fair to say, quite a lot of hoopla between Lampard and Mourinho before and after the match. I wanted to bring a team who could really compete.

'Keeper David de Gea and left-back Luke Shaw are also omitted from the squad. "The feeling I got from it was huge, it's an incredible feeling for me".

But things didn't go to plan as the Red Devils were dumped out of the competition 2-1 after Sergio Romero was sent off. To go against world-class players and play that way, it's right up there.
