Paul Pogba takes major swipe at Man Utd over ‘breath of fresh air’ France unity

Paul Pogba has hit Manchester United with a sly dig while on international duty with France.

The World Cup winning midfielder has a habit of speaking out against his club side while spending time with his countrymen, and this week has been no different.

The 27-year-old has spoken out about what is proving to be a tricky time in his club career after slipping down the pecking order under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and has mentioned his love for France.

In comments that could annoy his United boss, Pogba stated that he feels different when returning home.

When asked on RTL about his situation at United, Pogba replied: “I had never known such a difficult period in my career. The France team is a breath of fresh air, the group is exceptional, it's magic.”

That statement comes after Didier Deschamps questioned Pogba’s recent struggles at United, stating that he is not being fulfilled by his recent performances in the Premier League.

France boss Deschamps said of Pogba on Thursday: “He's not in his best form, of course. It's hard to remember to be positive. Obviously, he's not in one of his better periods.

“Like all players who have a club situation that is not positive, they are also impacted mentally.

“I know him well enough and it can happen at some points.

“We cannot, however, say that he is fulfilled in what he does at his club.”

Solskjaer’s former team-mate Phil Neville hit out at the decision to start without Pogba in recent weeks, stating that his exclusion is an ‘absolute disgrace’.

Neville told Premier League Productions: “I still think it's absolutely disgraceful that Pogba can't get in that team.

“For United to win a league, for United to be successful, for United to play the style of football that Ole wants them to play then Pogba has to play.

“You can play one of them (Nemanja] Matic, Fred or Scott McTominay and then you play Pogba with Bruno Fernandes.”
