Paul Pogba has made his intentions clear in public that he wants to leave Manchester United. Last week Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola added fuel to the fire by saying he was working on Pogba’s move away from Old Trafford.
However, Paul Pogba has been added to Manchester United’s pre-season squad that travels to Australia, China and Singapore. He continues to be linked with Juventus and Real Madrid. All of the latest developments regarding Pogba’s transfer have left some United fans angry.
Many of these fans took to Twitter yesterday and started posting about comments Jamie Carragher made about Pogba in September last year.
What Carragher said?
In September last year, after a string of below-par performances from Paul Pogba, he was criticised by Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher. Carragher had said,
“I’m sick of people making excuses for players, saying the manager isn’t getting the best out of them. Get the best out of yourself,”
“Paul Pogba, people talk about his position and giving him freedom – what is freedom? People keep saying he needs to be let off the leash. Is freedom doing a stupid Cruyff Turn on the halfway line and losing the ball?
“Being a captain and playing centre midfield for Manchester United, like [Roy] Keane, like [Paul] Scholes, like the great midfielders before, it’s playing for the team.
“That’s why Mourinho took the captaincy from him. He doesn’t feel he plays for the team. Pogba plays for himself, does his own thing.
“People saying Mourinho is causing problems. He (Pogba) isn’t really a captain though is he, in terms of how he plays? He’s letting his agent speak negatively about the club.
“How can that happen if he’s the man for Manchester United, fighting for the club, fighting for his manager. I don’t know if Pogba is worth the hassle for what he gives on the pitch.
“He’s not as good as he thinks he is. He’s got talent, but his big problem is understanding the game. It’s been a problem since he’s come.
“If you’re asking me Mourinho or Pogba, it’s Jose Mourinho. Don’t expect a completely different player if Mourinho leaves United.”
What’s happening on Twitter?
Now, Manchester United fans have started posting tweets in agreement with Carragher’s judgement of Paul Pogba last year.
Here are some of the tweets by the Red Devils fans,
Man United fans are really not pleased with Pogba’s attitude regarding his transfer.
