Man Utd ace Paul Pogba CRITICISED despite form under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for one reason | Football | Sport



That’s the opinion of former Red Devils defender Clayton Blackmore.

United knocked Arsenal out of the FA Cup last Friday with a convincing 3-1 win at the Emirates.

But Blackmore felt Pogba could have cost his side with his lack of defensive play against the Gunners.

“It’s a team game,” he told Love Sport.

“You can have fantastic individuals who can win you the game over and over again but if the team aren’t playing well… I was a little bit disappointed with Paul [Pogba].

“He was really good going forward but he’s not working hard enough getting back.

“I know he’s got [Ander] Herrera and [Nemanja] Matic there but I like to see the whole team working as hard as each other.”

Blackmore has also given his verdict on whether Solskjaer should get the permanent Manchester United job in the summer.

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has also been linked with the Old Trafford vacancy.

Blackmore added: “Whoever is going to come in won’t do as well as he’s doing now so why would you bring someone else in?

“It’s not just him either. He’s got Mick Phelan in there. There was a lot said about when Moyes came in and he got rid of Mick Phelan.

“You lose, on the coaching side of it, pretty much everything we had before.

“They’re got great experience now there in terms of the coaching side and obviously playing at the club.

“For me, it’s a no-brainer. It was a no-brainer a few weeks ago.”

United return to action tonight against Burnley in the Premier League (8pm).

The Red Devils are looking to close the three point gap to Chelsea who sit in fourth in the final Champions League qualifying place.
