Former Manchester United star, Paul Ince has urged midfielder, Paul Pogba to leave Old Trafford when the transfer window opens in January.
Ince stated this following United’s 3-1 defeat by Liverpool in Sunday’s Premier League encounter at Anfield.
Pogba, who was left out of United’s squad that were defeated by Jurgen Klopp’s men, has endured a challenging start to the Premier League season after falling out of favour under manager, Jose Mourinho.
The France international was also stripped off the vice captaincy earlier this campaign and was reportedly labelled a virus following their 2-2 draw with Southampton some weeks ago.
“If Paul Pogba’s not playing for United then there’s only one option,” Ince told talkSPORT.
“You don’t spend that kind of money on a player and have him on the bench, unless you’re winning week-in, week-out, which you’re not.
“I think he’s brought it upon himself, Pogba. I think he’s a world class player when he wants to be.
“The relationship between Mourinho and Pogba doesn’t seem right. Some of the things Mourinho will say about him… if he’s not trying, deal with it.
“It doesn’t need to be aired in public, I’m not sure that works. It kind of looks to me that they’re both angling to get him out in January.
“If I looked at all the evidence… He came on the other day and he didn’t get rapturous applause from the crowd, half were having him and half weren’t.
“So it looks like the fans are starting to turn against him, which is never nice, and it looks like he’s going to have to start winning the fans over again, which you can’t do sitting on the bench.
“So it all points to, come January, I think he’ll be gone.”
Pogba will hope to feature for United when they tackle Cardiff City on Saturday in the Premier League fixture.
