0:35 Louis Saha feels ego is causing issues at Manchester United but believes the situation can be resolved

According to Bleacher Report, Mourinho is considering giving the Chilean star the role of playing behind a striker in his squad after he scored a late goal to ensure the Old Trafford club defeated Newcastle 3-2 in their last Premier League encounter.

Pogba has reportedly fallen out with manager Jose Mourinho on various occasions this season, and that has coincided with a slow start to the season for United, who are eighth in the table, seven points off leaders Manchester City.

Pogba believes being in the World Cup-winning France team is in itself a big achievement and he never plays to get the armband.

Burley was speaking on Lukaku's form on ESPN FC when he suggested the 25-year-old's time may be up at United should his manager leave.

"I think he (Pogba) has done it on goal, and I don't think that is right", Saha, 40, said."It's the wrong communication, it puts pressure on the manager. with those talks you should do it in the dressing room with your manager". It puts pressure on the manager.

"I would have said "no, that's not something to say because you're not the manager".

"That allows me to relay messages and have the chance to be heard".

Pogba insists he is the ideal go-between for the older players and younger members of Didier Deschamps' squad.

The tall midfielder, said to be unsettled and chasing a move to Barcelona after being at loggerheads with manager Mourinho for the past year, has once again shown when it comes to being flashy on and off the pitch, there are few who can match him.

Despite taking on a key leadership role at the World Cup, a growing rift between Pogba and Mourinho saw the France global stripped of the United vice-captaincy last month.

Mourinho last month revealed Pogba would no longer be considered vice-captain of the club despite having already worn the captain's armband three times this season in the absence of Antonio Valencia.
