Jose Mourinho struck a frustrated figure as the Manchester United manager responded to a question about Paul Pogba becoming the club’s long-term captain.
Christmas is around the corner but Mourinho was not in a festive mood following United’s 2-2 draw at 10-man Leicester City after the Red Devils conceded a 94th-minute equaliser Saturday.
With Antonio Valencia injured, Pogba wore the captain’s armband at King Power Stadium but Mourinho refused to talk about leadership responsibilities as he ended his post-match news conference.
An irritated Mourinho told a reporter: “Do you think I want to talk about that now?
“In this moment with captain, and Paul and Paul and captain?
“Do you have any more questions about the game?”
As the reporter pressed for an answer, Mourinho replied: “That’s not a line. Merry Christmas”.
