Carragher and Lampard verdict on Pogba: 'Not good enough’

Former Liverpool and Chelsea legends Jamie Carragher and Frank Lampard have criticised United record-signing Paul Pogba for not working hard enough to help the team defensively.

Pogba joined his youth club in the summer for a record fee of £89.3 million but has failed to live up to the expectation attached to being the world’s most expensive players, having bagged only four goals in 25 Premier League games.  

“He’s still nowhere near good enough and hasn’t got the discipline. He’s a liability defensively.” Carragher told Sky Sports.

Pogba has been a firm started in Mourinho’s team this year but has been completely overshadowed by Zlatan Ibrahimovic who joined United on a free transfer. Former Chelsea legend Lampard also believes there’s more to be required from Pogba if he was to justify the money spent on him.

“He’s not a game changer.” he said. “It was a signal of their intentions to spend £90 million on someone I would say isn’t the finished article.

“We need to wait until the next season to see if he’s improving. But I do believe that is in him. If you spend £90 million, you don’t want a £90 million problem. I’m sure Jose Mourinho will solve it but at the moment he’s not fluent.”

Manchester United travel to FC Rostov on Thursday before they visit Stamford Bridge in a make-or-break bid for a top four spot against Chelsea on Monday.
