Man Utd transfer news: Paul Pogba tipped for exit after being dropped against Arsenal | Football | Sport

That’s according to former Old Trafford ace Paul Ince who wants the France international gone.

Pogba didn’t start yesterday’s match against Arsenal after a shocking display against Southampton on Saturday.

The former Juventus star has suffered issues with form throughout the campaign.

Pogba also had a high-profile training ground bust up with Jose Mourinho after being stripped of the vice captaincy.

Ince says Pogba – who was once the most expensive player in the world – is looking increasingly mediocre.

“Pogba’s supposed to be world class, but he looks bang average,” Ince told Paddy Power.

“If he thinks his place is to come on the pitch and do stupid little flicks and tricks which lead to them losing the ball – he’s an idiot.

“You can blame Jose Mourinho for some things, but you can’t blame him for everything. Pogba doesn’t help him himself, and he’s right to be dropped.

“It doesn’t matter how big your name is.

“No one is too big of a name to be dropped at United, or at least they shouldn’t be.

“You can see the mood of the fans changing, and their attitude and tolerance towards Pogba too.

“It’s rare that United players would boo a player, but they’re getting sick of his behaviour.

“There aren’t many United fans that would be sad to see him go.

“The attitude of the fans to me seems to be that if he’s that desperate to leave Old Trafford – he should just go.

“In fact, that would be the best outcome for everyone involved.”

Pogba’s effort levels and motivation have repeatedly been questioned.

Ince says the under-fire ace needs to take a leaf out of Ander Herrera’s book.

“Ander Herrera might not be the best player on the planet,” he added.

“But he gets United, he gets what it means to play for them and you can see he really wants to win.

“He has that desire which Romelu Lukaku, and particularly Pogba don’t seem to understand.

“There’s a true honour around playing for the club. And if you don’t get that, as far as I’m concerned you should be shown the door.

“It doesn’t matter whether it’s Manchester United or Morecambe.

“If Mourinho’s seen that in his players, then he’s got every right to not play the likes of Pogba, Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez. They deserve to be told.”
