Manager Jose Mourinho has confirmed that Paul Pogba is no longer the vice captain of Manchester United.

The latest development is a confirmation that all is not well between the player and his manager.

There were reports on Tuesday suggesting that Mourinho told Pogba, who has taken the captaincy three times this season in the absence of Antonio Valencia, that he would never captain United again to underline his authority at the club.

After United's Carabao Cup home defeat to Derby on Tuesday, Mourinho has now confirmed that Pogba has been stripped of the armband.

"No. The only truth [to the reports] is that I made the decision for Paul not to be the second captain anymore.

"But no fallout, no problems at all. The same person that decided Paul is not the second captain anymore is the same person that decided Paul was the second captain - myself.

"I'm the manager I can make these decisions, no fall out at all, no problems at all. Just a decision I do not have to explain."
