Man United’s success depends on Paul Pogba, claims ex-Red Devil

first_img How the Premier League table could change after the Boxing Day fixtures deals Which teams do the best on Boxing Day in the Premier League era? Boxing Day fixtures: All nine Premier League games live on talkSPORT smart causal REVEALED REVEALED Paul Pogba is of critical importance to Manchester United’s progress, according to ex-Red Devil Paul Parker.There has been increasing doubt over the Frenchman’s future at Old Trafford after stories emerged that he and United boss Jose Mourinho are in an ongoing dispute. RANKED possible standings Where Ancelotti ranks with every Premier League boss for trophies won 2 England’s most successful clubs of the past decade, according to trophies won “If Pogba succeeds, Man United succeeds on and off the pitch.“We’ve been talking about doing this and doing that with Pogba and he pops away for a month for the World Cup, plays seven games and is absolutely fantastic. Was he freed up or was it the fact he was playing in a position where he thoroughly enjoyed himself?Another player that appears to have a fractious relationship with Mourinho is Luke Shaw, who was subject to a number of public criticisms by the Portuguese last season.However, Shaw may well have turned a corner this campaign as he was the other player to score in United’s 2-1 victory over the Foxes. Both Shaw and Pogba have had their up and down moments at Old Trafford silverware Pogba and Mourinho have seemed to clash on occasions Pogba was on the score-sheet during the Red Devils’ Premier League opening day victory over Leicester but the midfielder has generally struggled to live up to his full potential in United colours.He has been linked with a move to the likes of Barcelona this summer as the transfer window has not closed in Spain, but Parker suggested United desperately need him.Speaking on Weekend Sports Breakfast with Georgie Bingham and Perry Groves, Parker said: “Players are a commodity in today’s game and when you’ve got someone for nearly £90million you want to get the best out of them.“You don’t want them to come to you and be seen as a failure at a club like Manchester United. You need Pogba to succeed.

The way he screws his face tells you he is a worried man.”last_img read more
