Video: Jamie Carragher accurately criticises Pogba on MNF… ‘Not worth the hassle’

Jamie Carragher did a good job summing up Paul Pogba on Monday Night Football — a player who is just not worth the hassle.

The former Liverpool defender takes a pop at Pogba and his agent, Mino Raiola, who has been poisonously outspoken about his client and Manchester United.

I won’t lie and say I’d be rushing to sign Erling Haaland as a result — because working with such an agent is always going to be problematic. Raiola represents a long list of starts and United have worked with a number of his clients in recent years such as Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Pogba is a strange one. He won the lot in Italy in a great Juventus side and the World Cup with France in 2018. But at United he has never seemed at home.

No-one is saying he’s not got tons of ability, but after four years of watching him in a United shirt it’s time to move him on.

Raiola pretty much confirmed that Pogba is looking for a new club in a recent interview. Respected Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano quoted the agent on Twitter:

“Pogba is not worth the hassle,” Carragher said on Sky Sports Premier League last night.

He added that Pogba is the “most overrated player I’ve ever seen!”

Would I start Pogba tonight against Leipzig? Not unless he is going to address his agent’s comments. The timing was terrible and it undermines the manager and his team-mates ahead of a crucial match in Europe.

It’s a step too far and one way below the belt.

And I can’t see a way back for Pogba now.

    I’m man utd fan, I like to see P play along side Bruno and other utd players for the sake of our club but
    for what is going on concerning Riola and his client P it is very disrespect to our club, P is not bigger than our club, Lastly let him leave immediately…… I always respect Sir Alex Ferguson. For his decisions, he was right to this troublesome person but also am sure Riola is thorn to our team more than a player himself, and he is looking for money thus is why he stated talking about a player who is still have a contract, that means among his clients only P can give him money compared to others
