Man Utd transfer news: Pundit delivers SCATHING view on Paul Pogba after Cardiff defeat | Football | Sport
That’s the damning verdict of former Hull City player Liam Rosenior.
United lost 2-0 to the already-relegated side after putting in a dire performance, and fans were left enraged by the manner of the loss.
One supporter even challenged Pogba during the lap of honour, and the Frenchman midfielder responded angrily.
And Rosenior agreed that the star had not been good enough this season, and hinted that Solskjaer should look at moving him on.
“Pogba is not the right player that United need right now,” Rosenior said.
“Is he a world-class footballer? Yes.
“Is he the type of player that you can use your values, your structure on, make him leader of the team? He’s not.
“He’s just not the right fit.
“Liverpool and City are so disciplined. I remember Carrick, his positioning, his selflessness, he made players around him better.
“Pogba makes players around him worse players, because they constantly have to fill in where he’s floating off.”
Since joining the club for £89million in 2016, Pogba has always been put under intense scrutiny by media, fans and pundits due to the price tag, and Rosenior hinted that could be a factor in his performances.
“I think too much has been placed on his shoulders to be the leader that he’s not,” he continued.
“I saw him play in the France team and run the show and win the World Cup, and the difference is that they have real leaders throughout that team in and around him, influencing him in the right way.
“Every player is a different personality.”
