Manchester United legend Bryan Robson has told the club’s interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer that Frenchman Paul Pogba should not be made captain of the club.

There have been news that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is planning to make Pogba the next captain as Antonio Valencia is on the verge of leaving the Old Trafford club.

This season in the Premier League, Pogba was made interim captain, but after series of bust ups at the club under Jose Mourinho, the Frenchman was stripped of the vice captaincy in September precisely.

But Robson believes both Herrera and Smalling are more suitable candidates than Pogba for the position.

“In the current squad, because of the way they try to organise, they communicate with team-mates, I think we only have two who are quite good at that,” Robson told Sport Witness.

“So we have Chris Smalling, who tries to organise, he shouts at people, he organises people. And then Ander Herrera

“I’ve watched him in training, he’s an organiser. And that’s what you need from your captain.

“But Paul Pogba plays more of an individual sort of side. “He’s not really saying to people “you come here, you come here, push forward”, or just applaud your teammate. When they give the ball away, you encourage them. You don’t always tell everybody off.

“Sometimes you have to encourage your teammates, you can’t just be telling people off all the time… I think Herrera and Smalling are two captains.”
