Former Manchester United star Paul Ince has taken aim at Paul Pogba, saying he won’t be backing the "sulky" midfielder anymore.
Pogba has suffered a recent dip in form, and missed the Red Devils’ win over Liverpool with an injury, before returning in the second half of their Champions League defeat to Sevilla on Tuesday.
He failed to impact the match in anyway, and frustrated United fans with his wasteful play, but perhaps worst of all had ex-Red Devils stars questioning his attitude.
Roy Keane hit out at Pogba, calling the Frenchman a "schoolboy". While Paul Scholes was also at a loss trying to explain United’s lethargic performance against Sevilla, although didn’t name-drop Pogba specifically.
And now Ince has questioned the France international’s attitude following his "sulky" display at Old Trafford, saying he’s changed his mind about the midfielder.
"A player I’ve never criticised is Pogba, he’s been an easy scapegoat for a lot of United’s poor performances. In fact, I’ve always backed him," Ince told Paddy Power News.
"But, last night, I started to see why some pundits and fans moan about him. I’d describe his performance, in one word, as ‘sulky’.
"He came on and looked totally disinterested. I can understand he was probably annoyed at Marouane Fellaini being chosen ahead of him, but you shouldn’t take those frustrations out on the rest of the team and the happiness of the fans.
"Irrespective of what’s going on, whether you’ve been having a tough time of it lately or you’re feeling irritated at not being selected, you need to appreciate what an honour it is to be at United.
"And you need to put a shift in, if not for yourself but for the sake of your team-mates and loyal fans."
