Pogba Dumbfounded by United’s Loss: “I wish I knew what went wrong”
Paul Pogba (Man United’s French midfielder) has told Sky Sports News “ I wish I knew what went wrong”.
Pogba has spoken about Manchester United’s mentality and thinks it must change after the players “disrespected” the club with their 4-0 loss away at Everton.
United’s season looks to be all but over as they succumbed to an Everton side who are beginning to find their rhythm under their manager Marco Silver.
First half goals from Richarlison and Gylfi Sigurdsson shocked United but when Lucas Digne and Theo Walcott also scored it condemned United to a humiliating defeat and looks to have ended any chance they have at making the top 4.
Pogba confessed that the players let down all associated with the club with their poor showing at Goodison Park. Speaking on Sky Sports he said,
“We let the manager speak, the staff speak and they spoke the truth”.
“They said what happened in the game and it is not respectful of ourselves”.
After what had happened during the course of this game it is an understatement to say that the players performance was disrespectful.
It was a performance that lacked heart, desire, commitment and a will to win. It was humiliating. Too many of the players played well under par and did not deserve to wear the kit.
Gary Neville speaking on Sky Sports News went further,
“ I am furious he said”
“He’s (Ole Gunnar Solskjaer) had to go over (to the fans) and apologise to them. I have often said that clubs over the last seven years, if you’ve got weeds in the garden then you’ve got to get rid of them.
It’s hard not to agree with the ex-Manchester United legend who built his career on handwork, commitment and desire. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reign at the club has well and truly begun and he must assert his experience, leadership and man management now. There are many players in that squad that need moving on now. Will the club show more patience, loyalty and support with him than the other managers?
Neville also said,
“I have full belief in Ole to do what he needs to do. The club will obviously support him but there is a big problem and performance today was rancid”. Neville continued,
“ I don’t need to name names, everyone knows who they are. They are in the newspapers every single day, they are on social media every single day”.
Strong words from the Ex Manchester United legend who will clearly defend his Ex United team mate and believes that no one is bigger than the club.
