'In the continuity of this, with no Antonio (Valencia) in the team, he was the captain and for the next match I don't think Antonio's going to play, so he'll be the captain again.
Pogba was given the captain's armband by his manager for the first game of the new season.
After Sunday's match with United, Albion travel to Liverpool next weekend and Jahanbakhsh said: "Every game is big and every opponent in the Premier League is a good side and will try to win every single game".
When pressed on the reasons for Pogba making his comments about possibly being fined, Mourinho added: "You have to ask him, you have to ask him. 'They've been really good for me, I think I've totally changed as a player and a human being after these two years".
Former United midfielder Paul Ince believes the onus is on Pogba to mend his relationship with Mourinho. "I dream of returning to Italy and Serie A, where I got a lot of satisfactions in the past, there is a train also known as the Italian National Team that I cannot miss...so let us see what happens by 8PM [CET] tonight". We never had a heated exchange of words, everything is respected, I have no problems at all.
"When he says he did it for the fans and for the team is exactly what I want, is exactly what I demand from my players, Mourinho said in his pre-match press conference".
Pogba's stock has risen even more after he starred in France's World Cup victory in Russian Federation this summer.
The tension between the two has been rising for some time amid the forward's uncertain future at Old Trafford.
"He's working extremely well here, but I have to say in his defence that write what you want about him, write what you want about me, please don't say lies".
"He should have been made captain when we signed him, give him some responsibility, there is not one standout person".
"I think Lingard [is available]", Mourinho said.
The eight-part film, "Manchester City: All or Nothing", which premiered in Manchester last week, documented their Premier League title triumph last season.
The Belgian is singlehandedly the club's best option up front simply because of how much he suits Jose's style while the rest struggle a little to lead the line.
