‘POGBA DISPLAY LACKED RESPECT’
Paul Scholes claims ‘disrespectful’ Paul Pogba should NEVER play for Manchester United again after his red card against Liverpool.
Sub Pogba was partly to blame for Mo Salah’s hat-trick goal on 50 minutes making it 5-0, before a straight red card for a dangerous tackle on Naby Keita.
Liverpool midfielder Keita needed to be stretchered off the field and Liverpool went on to dominate possession.
And ex-United and England midfielder told Premier League Productions: “To say a disappointing day would be a complete understatement.
“I don’t think it was a lack of effort, I think tactically they were set up in a way where this could happen and unfortunately it did happen.
“Paul Pogba coming on to the pitch at half time to try to help the team and maybe get a little respectability about it, tries to stand on the ball, tries to show how strong he is in the middle of the pitch… gives the goal away.
“Then later on gets sent off with a ridiculous tackle, now you’re 5-0 down with 10 men. You’d have to think, if Ole’s still a manager there, will we see Pogba again in a United shirt?
“He’s caused mayhem over the last couple of years. Everyone knows what a talent he is, everybody trusts him, every manager trusts him, tried to give him his head and let him be the player he’s been.
“But with all the commotion, not signing his contract, almost holding the club to ransom, and then he comes on and does something like that.
“It’s not Ole’s fault, don’t get me wrong, but that’s part of it which almost summed the United performance up today.
“Look, he probably will play [again] won’t he? But I don’t think they will be missing anything if he doesn’t.
“He’s had numerous chances, he keeps saying he lacks consistency, but that is just [a lack of] discipline and disrespect for your manager and your teammates, what he’s done today.”
