Ex-Man Utd pair Giles, Dunphy slaughter Pogba

Former Manchester United midfielders Johnny Giles and Eamon Dunphy has slammed Paul Pogba.

The former RTE pundit gave his view on his podcast The Stand, as he suggested Manchester United are 'hopelessly indulging' their World Cup winning midfielder.

"I watched him play twice for France in the UEFA Nations League when they won it," began Dunphy.

"He is a more disciplined and hungry fighter when he is playing for France than when he is playing for his club, which is a shocking indictment of him.

"Pogba has no change of pace and we have this situation with his contract.

"Last week, they were saying he had been offered a £400,000 per week contract by United which he hasn't signed. He is a free agent at the end of this season.

"Two weeks ago, his agent quoted as saying that [Pogba] loved Juventus and would love to go back to Juventus. Last week, it was that he loved Real Madrid and had a special place in his heart for them, but there is no way he is going back there.

"Manchester United Football Club have a player who is out of contract at the end of the season and he is acting the maggot, either him or his agent with statements every single week.

"How bad is that? It's disrespectful to his teammates and Manchester United. This is all part of the results, it comes out in the wash."

Dunphy's podcast colleague John Giles suggested Pogba didn't have his heart in United as stated he "had to go".

"Anyone managing Manchester United should be able to say, I don't want this guy and I want him out, but Solskjaer doesn't have that power," said Giles.

"The money people are trying to protect their financial situation here by trying to get him on a new contract. I don't think Solskjaer has any say in that situation, so he plays him and you get what you get. So long as he is playing like this, United are suffering."
