Jamie Carragher Slams Paul Pogba as ‘Most Overrated Player’
Jamie Carragher has branded Manchester United midfielder, Paul Pogba, “the most overrated player I’ve ever seen” on Sky Sports’ Monday Night football.
The Liverpool legend had a scathing assessment of the Frenchman’s time at Manchester United after seeing his controversial agent Mino Raiola sensationally announce he wants to leave the club.
“I can say that it’s over for Paul Pogba at Manchester United,” Raiola said in an interview with Tuttosport.
He also stated that the former Juventus man is unhappy at Old Trafford and “the best solution for all parties is a transfer in the next window”.
These type of comments, which come before a massive Champions League game against RB Leipzig, have been a regular occurrence ever since Pogba returned to United in a £89 million transfer in 2016.
And Carragher, who has been one of Pogba’s biggest critics, did not hold back when asked what United’s best solution should be with their most expensive signing.
“Get rid. I’ve been saying this for 12 months, oh my god, he is the most overrated player I’ve ever seen in my life,” Carragher said on Sky Sports.
“I think the two of them are a disgrace. We’ll all blame the agent now and say ‘ask Pogba’, what does he think?
“Agents in this day and age, they’re not just agents. They’re a parent, they’re a best friend, they’re the financial advisor, they book holidays, they go away together.
“Those two will be like that. He’ll be Pogba’s best mate, so Pogba will be well aware of what was going to come out of his mouth.
“If he wasn’t, he should sack his agent. It’s very, very simple. That’s all that needs to happen.
“I don’t know where he’s going to go, who is going to have him?”
Pogba hasn’t even been a first-choice starter for United of late and Carragher not only reckons United would be better off without him, he’s struggling to see him at Real Madrid or Barcelona.
“Why do that? Man Utd want rid of him, don’t kid yourself,” he continued.
“Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been playing Scott McTominay and Fred in front of him in midfield, and he’s had to come in because they were resting players.
“You’re saying he hasn’t played for a month. Yes he’s had a bit of an injury but before that he was on the bench.
“He played because they were resting players for Leipzig. Would you play him in Leipzig now on the back of that?
“There’s no chance in the world that Real Madrid or Barcelona buy him. I’d be flabbergasted if they come in for him.
“Maybe there’s a French thing with Zidane, I don’t know, but I wouldn’t go anywhere near him.”
Pogba has long been linked with Los Blancos and gone on record to say it would be “a dream” to play for Zidane and Real Madrid.
