Pogba had been United's stand-in captain for three games when regular skipper Antonio Valencia was missing and Ashley Young was named captain for the Derby game at Old Trafford.

Mourinho said on Sky Sports shortly before kick-off that Pogba and others had been "rested" for the Derby game.

"The only truth is that I made the decision for Paul not to be the second captain any more", Mourinho said.

THE BUST-UP: De Bruyne began the 2013-14 season in Mourinho's Chelsea starting line-up, having impressed on loan at Werder Bremen. Mourinho told Pogba he is no longer United's "second captain", reportedly because of concerns about his attitude.

Pogba has widely been criticised for failing to produce consistent performances under Mourinho at Old Trafford, but he was in fine form as he helped France to win the World Cup in Russian Federation this summer.

Derby County celebrate the win. But Harry Wilson equalized with a free kick in the 59th and United's problems deepened when goalkeeper Romero was sent off in the 67th for handling outside the box. "He was questioning the manager's way of working and it created an atmosphere in the dressing room that might have led to Mourinho losing his power".

The transfer was announced at 12.35am on United's social media feeds, using a hashtag "Pogback" while an online music video featuring Pogba and Stormzy - put together by kit sponsor Adidas - quickly went viral.

Surprisingly, these comments by the controversial manager were received positively by the players, which suggests that the team is most-likely fed up of the France international's antics.

"[Mourinho] is a manager who was hugely influential on my career twice - but particularly the first time around", added Lampard.
