Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that Paul Pogba is under consideration to become Manchester United’s next captain despite the midfielder saying he wants to quit the club.
Solskjaer is looking for a new skipper after the departure of Antonio Valencia at the end of season.
The armband was worn by Ashley Young and Juan Mata during the 2:0 win over Perth Glory on Saturday, July 13, 2019.
But according to United boss, Pogba, who has publicly claimed he is looking for a “new challenge” this summer, would be in the frame when a final decision is made ahead of the new season.
Speaking at a news conference at Optus Stadium, Solskjaer said:
“We’ve got quite a few possibilities there and when the season starts we’ll announce it.
“We’ll have a good assessment and see how preseason goes. But, as you saw, Ashley will wear it when he’s playing until we decide on someone”.
When asked if Pogba is one of the names under consideration, Solskjaer replied: “Yep”.
