Why I didn’t give Pogba the captaincy band – Solskjaer
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has explained why the captain band was given to Axel Tuanzebe instead of Paul Pogba in their last game.
The game which was a Carabao Cup third round tie against Rochdale, also had Pogba in the starting 11.
Surprisingly, Axel was handed the captain band. According to Solskjaer, it was a way of showing he’s trusted at the club.
Solskjaer told talkSPORT: “Axel is a captain in the making, he’s a leader – why not give to young kids?
“We know we can give it to Sergio [Romero] and we can give it to Paul, that’s no problem and they’ve been captains before.
“But it was Axel today and how does he handle it? He was absolutely fine, he enjoyed it.
“It’s just a way of telling him that we trust him.”
