Manchester United legend slams Paul Pogba after Sevilla UCL shock
One Manchester United legend has criticised Paul Pogba and a number of players after their shock Champions League exit at the hands of Sevilla.
The side performed poorly at Old Trafford and Sevilla made the most of that, scoring two goals through Wissam Ben Yedder.
Though, Man United legend Paul Ince has singled out the French midfielder after his ‘sulky’ performance.
“A player I’ve never criticised is Pogba, he’s been an easy scapegoat for a lot of United’s poor performances,” he explained.
“In fact, I’ve always backed him. But I started to see why some pundits and fans moan about him.
“I’d describe his performance, in one word, as ‘sulky’
“He came on and looked totally disinterested.
“I can understand he was probably annoyed at Marouane Fellaini being chosen ahead of him, but you shouldn’t take those frustrations out on the rest of the team and the happiness of the fans.
Paul Pogba wasn’t the only player that Ince singled out though, as he pointed out several players who are unable to stand up and be counted when it matters most.
“The entire team need to take a long look at themselves after that performance, as well as the fans and the manager,” said Ince.
“I can say for a fact that if me, Bryan Robson or Roy Keane were on that pitch and the game had started like that, it would be a different story.
“There’s not one leader in that entire United team. Not one player who can get a grip of the game, organise the players and make a difference.
“Your top players, Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku, David De Gea and Alexis Sanchez, should be able to stand up when the team is in trouble like that and change the game. None of them were capable, and I believe that says a lot.
The Paul Pogba United sold for £500,000 is better than the one they bought for £89,000,000.
