Sagna slams Pogba critics after Scholes said he should NEVER play for Man Utd again following Liverpool red card

FORMER Arsenal right-back Bacary Sagna has slammed Paul Pogba's critics after Paul Scholes blasted the midfielder for his red card in the 5-0 loss against Liverpool.

Pogba, 28, was subbed on at the start of the second half and was on the pitch for just 15 minutes against title rivals Liverpool when he was sent off for a horror challenge on Naby Keita.


Liverpool went on to cruise the rest of the derby fixture, keeping a clean sheet at Old Trafford.

United legend Scholes blasted Pogba for the red card after the game, saying the midfielder has 'caused mayhem' at the club, and questioned if United will see much of him throughout the rest of the season.

Scholes said: "He’s caused mayhem over the last couple of years. Everyone knows what a talent he is, everybody trusts him, every manager trusts him, tried to give him his head and let him be the player he’s been."

Sagna's question to the Pogba critics: what do you want him to do?

Speaking to Freebets.com, the Frenchman said: "I love Paul and the way he plays.

"I don't want to speak for him, but it seems like things have been a little difficult between him and the fans at times because they expect so much from him.

"They want him to be perfect because he's so charismatic on the pitch and can create so much space they want him to do everything. A bit like now with Ronaldo.

"Pogba got a lot of stick for his recent sending off, yes it was a bad tackle, but he's trying to fight and get the ball back for the team.

"What do you want him to do, just stand and watch?

"People think he doesn't care, that he's smiling but knowing him he was disappointed. 

"I don't know if he belongs at Man United. I'd love to see him shining in the team – he loves Manchester."

Pogba serves the last game of his suspension this weekend when United take on Watford.

The Frenchman will be back for the Red Devils' crucial fixtures against Chelsea and Arsenal.
