Jose Mourinho names new captain, may cause division in the team

Manchester United first match against Leicester City saw France international, Paul Pogba, being given the captain armband but everyone knew it was a publicity stunt.

Paul Pogba being given the captain armband was to relieve the growing tension between him and Jose Mourinho and to assure the midfielder that the new season is coming with a new beginning for him.

The France international has been linked with a move away from Man United as he was expected to move to Barcelona or return to Juventus but his performance at the world cup for France made Jose Mourinho have a change of thought about the midfielder.

Now retired player, Micheal Carrick was the captain for the Red Devils but the star is no longer playing on the field as has hanged his boot and the captaincy role was shifted to Antonio Valencia last season.

Well,  Mourinho in a statement last week stressed that Paul Pogba was made captain because Valencia was not available.

In a new statement, the Portugal international has named a new captain for this season and it falls back on Antonio Valencia but this might resurrect a new division in the team as the duo of Paul Pogba and David de Gea are also popular.

How Mourinho ‘deceived’ fans on Pogba’s captain band stripping

Published

jose mourinho

Few weeks ago, Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho stripped of captain band from French midfielder Paul Pogba owing to the supposed rift between them.

The United boss had before the entire team squad told the World Cup winner who has captained the side on two occasions that he will never have an opportunity to do that again.

Pogba has been accused of insubordination and also disrespecting the club and the manager.

One of the sins committed by the former Juventus player is publicly questioning the tactics employed by the manager by stating that the team ought to only attack when at home. This is after United failed to defeat Wolves on September.

However, it is believed that Mourinho’s decision on the player wearing the armband is “unwittingly” deceiving the club fans knowing that the player has been a natural leader on the field of play and that has still not stopped going by the roles handed to him by the manager.

It would be recalled that a revelation after United’s magical comeback against Newcastle last weekend disclosed that the 3-2 victory would have arguably been impossible if the tactical advice given to the former Chelsea boss by Pogba was not given.

It was reported that Pogba had told Mourinho what to do and the tactical changes that won the game from 2-0 in the first half to a 3-2 victory at full time.

Chelsea star and Belgium international, Eden Hazard last week had made claims over a likely move to Real Madrid.

Although the player claimed he is happy at Chelsea but he disclosed that a move to Real Madrid will also make him happier.

Real Madrid had shown interest in the player during the summer transfer window but Chelsea held their ground against selling him, what we don’t know is for how long Chelsea can continue to deny him the transfer to Spain.

Hazard, 27, in a recent statement made it known that he will remain at Chelsea until the end of the season but he has assured the Blues he will not force his transfer away from Chelsea the way his fellow countryman, Thibaut Courtois had done last season.

Courtois forced a move from Chelsea in the summer transfer window by refusing to resume for training.

In Hazard’s case, the Belgium star disclosed he wants to maintain the respect between the two parties and as such wouldn’t force his move from, Chelsea.

Eden Hazard in his statement said ‘Chelsea were clear to me, I could not leave, I accepted it.’

He went on to say if he leaves or stays he was going to be happy.

The winger disclosed he would never clash with Chelsea and if he leaves Stamford Bridge he would ‘leave on good terms.’

Chris Sutton

Chelsea legend Chris Sutton has spoken on the chances Arsenal have to win the Premier League this season.

Sutton who was only replying to the questions asked boldly replied by saying Arsenal will not win the Premier League this season.

The Chelsea legend is not moved by the threat the Unai Emery side pose to other top teams after rising from a two consecutive defeats against Manchester City and Chelsea consecutively to winning their remaining six games in the league.

Aside from shooting to the 4th position in the premier league table, Arsenal have gone nine games with a winning streak.

Despite all of the signs, Sutton insists that the North London club will not emerge, winner of the league, this season.

He has pointed to Liverpool and Manchester City as the two potential candidates for the title, not mentioning Chelsea despite keeping their second position place.

However, Sutton said the only possibility for Arsenal is to have a return to the Champions League next season by finishing in the top four positions above their London rivals, Tottenham.

So far, Arsenal have earned 18 points from the 8 games played so far and they hope to continue their winning streak when they welcome Leicester City to the Emirate Stadium on Monday 22 October after the international break.

UEFA Nations League: Southgate makes case for clubs, players

Southgate

The UEFA Nations League has been ongoing since the commencement of the international break and it has not been an easy one for players who have got just a little time to rest.

England national team coach Gareth Southgate is one of those who will hit out on the Premier League for rushing to begin the league without giving necessary conditions to players who were at the Russia 2018 World Cup.

Southgate who spoke ahead of his side’s Nations League game against Spain noted that clubs are placed in an impossible situation where they have to field players who have not rested to achieve results.

According to the England boss it was wrong for the Premier League to have started on August 10; just 27 days after his side were eliminated by Belgium in the World Cup.

Citing Tottenham as an example, Southgate said many of their players reached the semi-finals of the World Cup and had no rest until the league started, pointing it as the reason why they have failed to give their best performance.

The situation becomes more difficult for players as they have to return back to their various countries for the UEFA competition without enough rest for them to have.

Southgate is the second after Liverpool manager to have made such a claim, with the German manager arguing that the Nations League should be scrapped to allow players to refresh before they return back to their various clubs.
