'Pogba Not Good Enough For Man Utd'

'Paul Pogba Not Good Enough For Manchester United'

By Kurt Buckerfield - Jan 04, 2018 06:58 PM @KurtLaduma

Following Paul Scholes' recent criticism of Paul Pogba, the Frenchman has once again found himself on the receiving end of some harsh words.

De Gea Makes Big Decision On His Future

Manchester United legend Scholes recently slammed Pogba for some of his displays this season, and Eamon Dunphy, a former Irish international, has now launched an even more scathing attack on the former Juventus player.

"There's an awful lot of hype merchants in the media and in the game saying that Pogba is an outstanding, but I agree with everything that Scholes has said," Dunphy said on RTE 2fm's Game On.

"Paul Scholes is well qualified as a commentator, he was a great player. He calls things as he sees it and we should be grateful for that.

"This 'magician' called Pogba, well, he never turns up. A price tag of £90m, well that's ridiculous. Pogba is not good enough. No matter what system Paul Pogba plays in, he is not a top player. United would be better off without him.

"He's okay, if you paid £20 million, you'd think you'd be getting a good deal.

"He's on the fringes of games, he hits these long 40-yard balls that are like lasers but they look better than they are.

"He doesn't really have a football brain. When I look at games, I know where Pogba should be. Most of the guys writing about Pogba don't have the knowledge to know what he should be doing.

"He's pretty ordinary, he's never going to get you more than eight or nine goals a season.

"At £90 million, it was a statement signing from United. In other words, 'We are Manchester United and we are in the big league, we can sign big cheques'. Pogba was the wrong guy to sign the cheque for."

Shock EPL Club In For Ronaldo?

Despite the criticism, United have not lost in 34 league games with Pogba on the field, while they have lost five times without him.

Do you agree with Dunphy's sentiments? Let us know in the comments section below.

I'm not Man Utd fan nor Pogba's fan but I think these are unfair criticisms as Pogba didn't apply for 90 million pounds. These legands might be right on his performance that is not special but he can't be blamed for his price tag instead you can blame Man Utd as well as Juventus

The former ManU players who never made it anywhere else but at Manchester under the mercurial Sir Alex believe they they are footballing gods. They signed Pogba when he was still a child and discarded him for free only to buy him again for £90m. Who is ordinary here, Pogba or them? Pogba has proved his prowess in a few European Leagues. Nobody even in the EPL attempted to price Scholes out of ManU purely because he was a one-band radio made for ManU only.

@Blackadder None of the comments here are saying ALL white people are racist, only the comments by Scholes & Dunphy. Read it again...........it is completely over-the-top.......WHY?

I have also read this article twice and i feel it is a purely an unadulterated racist tirade. Paul Pogba did not buy himself. Why are these people directing this tirade towards a player and not the owners who bought him. Oh wait, they are white. They cant make stupid decisions. We, who have experienced racism can smell it a mile away!!!!

The only racist comments I see are from you guys on here. Pogba is overated and the fact that white commentators say this is irrelevant. Get over yourselves!

I was reluctant to call this a racist tirade..........but after carefully reading it again..............this is nothing else but a racist attack, particularly the part about a football brain. WILL WE(humans) EVER CHANGE?

Paul Scholes is smoking a cheap weed...just a year ago, he was praising Michael Carrick & Fletcher as the best. Pogba better than these cows. I dont know why these legends are jealous.

Paul Scholes would never have made it anywhere except MU. He shouldn't try to hype himself my attacking a big brand like Pogba. Of course I'm black and I easily take offence when someone pinkish (as Bob would say it) attacks another black. Pogba is one of the greatest players that was sought by majority of top clubs in Europe something that Scholes never received his entire career. His 90M Pounds was as a result of the highest bidder who at the time was MU. Its not Pogba's problem that he's currently in a team of unknown entities who are never wanted anywhere.
