Phil Neville was not pleased at all with the outing of one of United’s vital players Paul Pogba in the recent Premiership fixture against Southampton FC which was a draw, much to the disappointment of the Red Devils fans who had the expectations of an easy and a clinical victory against an out of form Saints outfit.
“You saw Pogba today. He wasn’t fantastic. He was sloppy. He caused United problems. Deal with it.” Neville was quoted saying by The Telegraph.
It’s not only Neville, but the supporters of Manchester United are also angry with how Pogba has been going about his business and some of them are of the opinion that he just doesn’t have any aspirations with United anymore and he has no desire of extending his tenure at the club.
However, Pogba is not the only United player whose performance has been a let-down in the recent times. There are many in that locker room who have not managed to live up to the expectations and the blame for that falls on the manager as well. The pressure is mounting on Mourinho who had landed at Old Trafford in 2016 with massive hype.
There are reports that the Portuguese gave his players a dressing-down in the aftermath of the Southampton result and he came down hard on Pogba in particular.
