Pundit Warns Man Utd over Pogba captaincy

Danny Mills gave a warning to Manchester United by giving Paul Pogba captain next season after revealing the unusual benefits granted to former Red David Beckham
as England captain.

Pundit Mills, who played under Beckham's command for the Three Lions at the 2002 World Cup, was asked in talkSPORT about the idea of ​​making Pogba the next captain
of United.

The current captain of the team, Antonio Valencia, announced that he will leave the club in late June. And Pogba, who leads United's locker room, has been named as
a potential contender, along with defender Victor Lindelof.

"How much energy do you give a person?" Mills asked when asked about it.

The former Man City and Leeds defender revealed Beckham's role as England captain and warned Manchester on how to avoid a similar situation.

"Commercially for England and the FA, David Beckham was absolutely huge," he added. "But that becomes a problem when it starts dictating when you train, what
restaurants you go to, when you eat, what you do, the Training times. Sven and FA have allowed you that power.

"If he had anything on him, he would have a meeting with Sven and say, 'Can we just adjust a little and do it slightly differently'?

"And Sven was very receptive: 'Yes, David, no problem.'

"For some of the more experienced players there was a small problem. It was good to start because he was the captain and that's fine, but there was a point where
 clearly Sven and the federation gave him a little too much power to start dictating things.

"We had experienced players in that locker room, like David Seaman, Martin Keown, Teddy Sheringham, Paul Scholes and Michael Owen, and there was a small turning
 point, like ..." Wait a minute. "

"It was not David Beckham's fault. If you give someone that power, of course you will use it and you will use it however you want.

Mills then urged United that it would be a "slippery slope to come down" if they handed the cuff to Pogba next season.

The Frenchman's season ended in a non-edifying style when he was involved in a fight with supporters at the Stretford End following United's 2-0 defeat at home to
 Cardiff and he was scapegoated by fans, club in 2018/19.

He added: "If Manchester United do something very similar to Paul Pogba ... he is already the pin-up boy of Manchester United.

"He's on all the posters, he's what he sells, he's the main reason why they have many of those commercial contracts and bring a lot of money to the club.

"If you start giving him even more power and give you captaincy, his attitude is not the best and we've already seen this season that he can knock down the tools
 sometimes. His attitude is not always punctual. "
