• Midfielder to start against West Ham after ‘training well’
• Manager denies training incident with Pogba was disruptive
José Mourinho has said Paul Pogba will start Manchester United’s game at West Ham United, with the manager clear that although “no player is bigger” than the club, the midfielder deserves selection after training well since being stripped of the vice-captaincy.
Mourinho informed Pogba on Tuesday that he would not captain United again and the following day the pair were involved in a training-ground incident regarding the player’s posting of an Instagram story. The manager was concerned that the video featuring Pogba laughing came after the Carabao Cup defeat by Derby County on Tuesday.
