Man United must sort out 'agenda' against Paul Pogba - Hargreaves

Former Manchester United and England midfielder, Owen Hargreaves has urged the club to sort out the agenda against the French midfielder.

Pogba was omitted from Jose Mourinho’s  starting line-up, though he came on in the 17th minute to replace Ander Herrera after he suffered an injury.

The French midfielder was also surprisingly taken off in recent defeat to Tottenham and Newcastle, while he didn’t make the line against Huddersfield after suffering illness.

Speaking to Radio 5 Live, the former United midfielder said: “There’s definitely an agenda up with Paul Pogba. I’m not sure why. I think he’s a terrific football player.

“I thought he started the season absolutely exceptionally and everything really started at that game against Tottenham where Manchester United were thoroughly outplayed and that’s where the issues have come in.

“But if you’re going to criticise Pogba for playing in a midfield two against a Spurs team at Wembley where they will dominate possession, obviously he didn’t affect the game.

“In the last five games he hasn’t played to the level that he is capable of but a lot of that I think is he’s not probably playing in a position that he did with Juventus.

“The agenda is everybody speaks about his price-tag, his social media and his haircuts but actually he’s a brilliant football player, he’s a great team-mate and he’s a lovely kid.

“Now they’ve created this perception and it’s not getting better, it’s getting worse, and they need to sort this out because they need to come together.

“He’s at the perfect football club for him and they need to trust him by putting him in a position to succeed like he did at Juventus.”
Man United play Chelsea on Sunday, with doubt lingering whether he will make the starting eleven or not.
