‘It would be better if you just left!’ – Andrei Kanchelskis slams Paul Pogba

Former United winger Andrei Kanchelskis sees no reason why Pogba, who has repeatedly spoken of his dream to one day play for Real Madrid, should stick around at Old Trafford and has told the midfielder to either leave or put up and shut up

Kanchelskis, who played for five seasons under Alex Ferguson at United between 1991 and 1995, has also lost patience with Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola.

‘Pogba is always talking about leaving Manchester United, so for me, it would be better if you just left,’ the Russian told American Gambler.

“If you’re saying every time, ‘I don’t like this, I don’t like, I want to leave’ then just leave. Go. Leave. No problem.

“Of course Raiola is a huge problem, he’s always saying that Pogba is not happy at Manchester United.

“If you want to come and play for Manchester United, you need to open your heart, play 100 per cent. It’s a shame as Pogba is a great player.”

United broke the world transfer record to facilitate the transfer of the French midfielder back to Old Trafford from Juventus in the summer of 2016 but the £89-million player has been plainly struggling to live up to high expectations at United and has suffered from persistent injury problems.

With the likes of Bruno Fernandes and Donny van de Beek in excellent form, Pogba, 27, is currently struggling to even make Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team, and had, during the October internationals, publicly reiterated it would be a ‘dream’ to play for Real Madrid, a club he has been regularly linked to.
