Manchester United aren’t exactly the happiest of camps at the moment.
Sitting in the bottom half of the table after one win and one defeat, they are attracting a fair amount of criticism for their failure to produce results despite possessing a relatively strong line-up.
Manager Jose Mourinho failed to build his squad considerably this summer window, signing just three players, none of which can be considered blockbusters from United standards.
To make matters worse, the English giants succumbed to a shocking defeat at the hands of Brighton and Hove Albion on Sunday, which raised several more burning questions.
One of those questions was raised by former Manchester United player Paul Scholes, who has pretty much done it all during his time at Old Trafford. The club legend was quick to pick out a few players for their shambolic displays at the Amex Stadium, with Paul Pogba emerging as one such unfortunate party.
Scholes called Pogba ‘really poor’ as well as inconsistent during his post-match analysis of the 3-2 defeat, and lambasted the side for lacking the edge needed to come back from two goals down.
While many, along with Paul Pogba himself, will agree with Scholes’ assessment of the game, it appears as if the Frenchman’s agent, Mino Raiola, isn’t buying any of it.
Raiola took to Twitter to support his client and handed it back to Scholes with a couple of rather nasty tweets, the first of which read: “Some people need to talk for fear of being forgotten. Paul Scholes wouldn’t recognize a leader if he was in front of Sir Winston Churchill.”
In a second tweet, Raiola went one further and revealed: “Paul Scholes should become sports director and advise Woodward to sell Pogba. Would be sleepless nights to find Pogba a new club.”
