Jamie Redknapp warns Paul Pogba needs to be loved at Man United
The Liverpool FC legend believes Paul Pogba needs to be loved at Manchester United
Jamie Redknapp believes Paul Pogba isn’t as confident as the Manchester United star appears to be.
The Red Devils midfielder has been coming under criticism in recent weeks following two Premier League defeats in their last three top-flight games.
Pogba was prematurely substituted in Manchester United’s losses to Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United on the road.
The 24-year-old has been the subject of indirect criticism from his manager Jose Mourinho to call into question his role in the Manchester United team.
Pogba has scored three goals and has made nine assists in 17 games in the Premier League this season.
Former Liverpool FC captain Redknapp described Pogba as a player who needs the support of his manager to thrive.
“Everyone expects him to be this big confident player,” Redknapp told The Debate on Sky Sports.
“Everything that goes with him – the outfits, the boots and the emojis. I think deep down, he isn’t the most confident player in the world.
“He is the sort of player who needs to be loved.”
Pogba moved to Manchester United in a club record £89m deal from Serie A giants Juventus in the 2016 summer transfer window.
The France international won the Europa League and the League Cup in his first season back at Stamford Bridge.
