Mourinho has worked hard to make Pogba feel valued within the team after handing him the captain’s armband for the opening match against Leicester City.

Pogba departed Le Havre to join the youth academy at Manchester United in 2009.

The Red Devils two years later gave him his first-team debut but after three appearances Alex Ferguson confirmed that Pogba had left the club after not signing a new contract.

The French international completed a transfer to Juventus in 2012 and signed a four-year-contract.
