'Pogba Is Trying To Create Drama At Man Utd'

A former Premier League manager believes that Manchester United's Paul Pogba is trying his best to create tension at the Red Devils, amid rumours the player has fallen out with Jose Mourinho.

Reports: Pogba Dreams Of Playing Under His Hero

For a while now, it has been said that Pogba and Mourinho do not see eye to eye at United, which has resulted in speculation linking the Frenchman with a move away from the club.

Pogba cast some doubt on his long-term future at the club in a recent interview, fuelling further talk he could be headed for the exit doors come the January transfer window.

Sam Allardyce, who worked last at Everton, believes that the Frenchman is trying to create uncertainty at United in order to get his way.

"Agents and players are becoming far too powerful," he told talkSPORT.

"It's been a particular problem for many, many years but it's getting stronger and stronger – dictating too much regarding where the player goes or where he wants to go.

"And then, when the player doesn't get what he wants, he starts to create unrest at the football club to try to get his own way.

"It's a strong manager and a strong owner that will only withstand that pressure, otherwise they will crack and allow him to go.

"The club need to say, 'The manager is going to be here, you're going to be there, you've got a contract – shut up and get on with it'.

"You need a strong ownership, not a strong manager, to put things right."

Pogba, who has been linked with FC Barcelona of late, has scored two goals in four matches for United so far this season, both from the penalty spot.
