Former Man United player Paul Ince claims that Paul Pogba needs some self-assessment to start giving the club what he’s brought in for.
Since Pogba’s record breaking £89 million ($116 m) from Juventus, the 27-year-old has mostly been an underperforming enigma, first under Jose Mourinho, and now under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
“I love Pogba. I think he’s a world-class player on his day. We saw that at Juventus. But since he’s come to Manchester United it’s been nothing but problems,” Paul Ince told Ladbrokes.
“Under Jose Mourinho and things with his agent, there’s always something. His performances haven’t been up to scratch, the fans have almost gone against him.
“If I was playing with him, I’d be saying ‘listen, you just go out there and play. Go out there and start performing. Once you start performing like you should be performing, then you can talk about wanting to sign for Real Madrid, because at the moment you can’t even get into the Man United side.’
“If I’m Paul Pogba, I’m sitting on the bench thinking ‘hang on, I’ve got Fred, Scott McTominay and Bruno Fernandes all playing in midfield and I’m sat on the bench? There’s got to be something wrong with me.’
“Man United is not about Paul Pogba,” concluded the former English international.
Coming up next for United is a challenging trip to Merseyside to face Everton.
