Twitter reacts to Pogba captaincy snub as Man Utd youngster gets armband vs Rochdale

September 25, 2019 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
The Frenchman marked his return from injury by starring in the starting lineup for the meeting with Rochdale.

Fans on social media have expressed mixed feelings over Paul Pogba's captaincy snub in Manchester United's midweek encounter with Rochdale. In Wednesday's Carabao Cup test with the League One side, the Red Devils bestowed the honor on academy graduate Axel Tuanzebe who is only making his seventh competitive senior start.

Pogba handed the Old Trafford outfit a massive injury boost with his return having missed the last three matches with an ankle injury. In his absence, Solskjaer's side secured narrow wins over Leicester and Astana before slumping to a disappointing 2-0 defeat against West Ham on Sunday.

Despite ranking among the most experienced squad members, the 26-year-old Frenchman was not rewarded with the armband in his return with first-team captains David De Gea and Ashley Young being amiss in the starting lineup. Instead, Solskjaer made a big call by naming Tuanzebe as the skipper for the day albeit the center-back spending the whole of last season on loan at Aston Villa.
