- Paul Pogba has continued to be criticised by Manchester United former players
- Paul Ince is the latest to slam 2018 World Cup winner apart after the Champions League defeat to Istanbul Basaksehir
- Ince said the midfielder is nothing but a problem since he returned to Old Trafford from Juventus in 2016
Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Ince has described Paul Pogba as 'nothing but a problem' since he returned to Old Trafford from Juventus in 2016.
The Frenchman rejoined the Red Devils in the club's record deal valued around Є89 million four years ago but his level of inconsistencies has seen him criticised in the past few seasons.
Although he helped them to Europa League and the elF Cup triumphs in his first season under Jose Mourinho, his contributions afterward have been subjected to heavy criticisms.
Pogba has also failed to replicate his World Cup form for his club and this has cast doubts on his future at Old Trafford.
Meanwhile, after United's 2-1 Champions League defeat at Istanbul Basaksehir, Ince said the midfielder needs to re-invent himself. Ince told Ladbrokes:
“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.
“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.”
Meanwhile, the Frenchman has expressed desires to play for Zinedine Zidane's Real Madrid but the La Liga champions have slowed down on their interest for the midfielder.
It is however left to be seen if Man United will extend Pogba's contract which expires in the summer of 2022.
Legit.ng earlier reported that former Manchester United coach Rene Meulensteen believes Paul Pogba has not worked hard enough to merit the 'world-class' status.
The Frenchman was responsible for the Red Devils' 1-0 defeat to Arsenal at Old Trafford in last weekend's Premier League cracker.
Pogba hacked down Hector Bellerin who made an attacker move in the second half before Pierre Emerick Aubameyang superbly converted the spot-kick.
