Pogba Deserves To Be Dropped From Man United Squad- Gary Neville
Jose Mourinho’s threat to drop Paul Pogba from his Manchester United side has been welcomed by Gary Neville, with the £89 million midfielder considered to be “playing at walking pace”.
The France international appeared to have overcome his recent struggles when producing an inspirational two-goal showing in a derby date with Manchester City.
He was, however, frustratingly anonymous during Sunday’s 1-0 defeat to West Brom last time out to once again highlight the inconsistencies in his game which continue to attract criticism.
Mourinho has suggested that he is ready to bench underperforming stars in a midweek Premier League clash with Bournemouth and an FA Cup semi-final date with Tottenham, and Neville believes he would be right to remove the likes of Pogba and Alexis Sanchez from his plans.
Having backed those proposals in a series of posts on social media, the former United defender said on supposed star turns who are not pulling their weight: “You watched them recently!
“If they play hope they play well but you couldn’t argue against Rashford, Martial, Mata, Lingard etc in front of them!”
Neville added on Pogba after having it pointed out that he has previously branded United “a better side” with the Frenchman in it: “Yes but enough is enough!
“He’s playing at walking pace! He can do so much more…”
