Man Utd News: Former Red Devils striker criticizes Paul Pogba for his antics. He says the midfielder has created a difficult situation to manage for Solksjaer.
Former Manchester United striker Louis Saha criticized star Midfielder Paul Pogba for going public with his decision to leave. He said that he felt annoyed and gutted over the way Pogba expressed his wishes.
On an Adidas promotional tour of Tokyo last month, Pogba spoke about looking for a new challenge.
“For me I have been for three years in Manchester and have been doing great; some good moments and some bad moments, like everybody. Like everywhere else. After this season and everything that happened this season, with my season being my best season as well. I think for me it could be a good time to have a new challenge somewhere else. I am thinking of this: to have a new challenge somewhere else.”
Paul Pogba tells media in Tokyo that the current transfer window ‘can be a good time to have a new challenge somewhere else’.

Speaking on Paul Pogba making his desire to leave public, Louis Saha said:
“I am a bit annoyed by that, but what can you do?
“I struggle to understand why players express themselves (in this way). As much as they want to move, I understand that, but I don’t think it is something that should be done. I am especially gutted because he is a massive player for the club.
“I hope that he can still remain (with United), but it is difficult to see that because when you express something like this, it becomes a difficult situation to manage. It is not going to be easy for Ole (Gunnar Solskjaer).”
Louis Saha also attempted to explain why Pogba performs better for France
“There is a transition period for United, but that is not the case for France. There was no lack of stability with the manager for France. The situation is not the same for United. United are still trying to find their feet back since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson.”
“These are some things that can give an indication of why he has struggled. Because he is a big and talented player, sometimes people expect him to do too much. He had a tremendous season, but people will still expect more.”
