He added: "I know for sure what Derby is coming for and every club that plays against us they have that objective and Frank doesn't hide that when he brings his team full strength, not anxious about the next Championship game just thinking about tonight".

The United manager is said to have told Pogba and the rest of the squad at Carrington on Tuesday - hours before the Carabao Cup tie against Derby - that the World Cup victor would not be handed the captain's armband again despite skippering the team on three occasions this season.

"It is one of the reasons we hired Jose Mourinho and we have already won three with him". That's Old Trafford. We are here to attack.

The France worldwide has made a decision 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.

Paul Pogba launched a blistering critique of Manchester United's defensive-minded tactics in Saturday's draw with Wolverhampton Wanderers, which is likely to infuriate manager Jose Mourinho.

"We are committed to our philosophy of blending top academy graduates with world-class players and are proud that, once again, last season we had more academy graduate minutes on the pitch than any other Premier League club".

In his post-match interview after the Derby loss, Mourinho insisted there was no fall out between him and Pogba, though. "When Arsenal play, they just go gung-ho, that's not the case at Manchester United".

"We are at home and we should play much better against Wolves".

Pogba took to Twitter earlier today to write: "Some people make polemic even from "good morning" to create drama".

Manchester United is predicting another year of record revenue despite a shaky start to the club's Premier League season. Then we tried to defend a bit more against the counter-attack.

Mourinho had a different theory as to why United were unable to beat last season's Championship winners. We need to match that level of aggression, motivation and desire.
