United are a great club & all Pogba’s done is show contempt and disrespect
CAPTAIN MARVEL ROBBO SHOULD BE HIS ROLE MODEL
The talkSPORT host and former United striker struggled for the Red Devils during two seasons at Old Trafford in the mid-1980s after moving from Tottenham.
But Brazil believes it was still a great honour to pull on United’s shirt – and believes it’s disgraceful the way Pogba has treated them with disdain in allowing his agent Mino Raiola to make constant references to a “dream” move to Real Madrid.
Pogba, 27, is no longer the star turn in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad – with Bruno Fernandes the new midfield darling of United fans, and Marcus Rashford showing class on the pitch and off it too pursuing his school- meals campaign.
And although United triggered a one-year contract extension that ties French World Cup winner Pogba to the club until the summer of 2022, Brazil would ditch him.
“I’d drive him to the airport and put him on the plane myself,” said Brazil who reckons Pogba’s time at Old Trafford is done.
Pogba played his part in United’s 5- 0 Champions League demolition of RB Leipzig in midweek. But Brazil insists that the he Frenchman – signed for r £ 89million from Juventus us in 2016 – needs to move ve on.
“Some moves ves aren’t always a success, ccess, I know that from m my own time at
United where ere it didn’t really work out,” said the Scot.
“But I can’t an’t accept Pogba gba disrespecting ng a club like United. ed.
“I look back ck on my time there and nd see it was a privilege lege to play for them m even when things gs weren’t going g well. we But he’s rocked t the boat by talking u up a move to M Madrid when he should sh be trying to make m his time at Old Ol Trafford work.
“I’d drive him to Man Manchester Airport myself myself. It’s not worked out, h he’s not been consist consistent enough, but I’d wish him the best and say, ‘G ‘ Go and show us what a great gre player you are’.
“He’s not n done nearly enough to justify his price tag and hasn’t helped Solskjaer when his manager really needed him to perform.
“I don’t think the club are helping Ole either with the Pogba situation. I don’t care what anyone says about how good he is and that he’s a World Cup winner – for me he’s shown the club contempt with his behaviour.
“The problem now is that the pandemic has wrecked the finances of even the biggest clubs and now the likes of Real Madrid and Juventus can’t afford him. Maybe his best option is moving to Paris Saint-Germain.”
Brazil knows a thoroughbred when he sees one – and he believes Pogba should have taken his lead from United legend Bryan Robson ( left).
“When you think of the great players the club have had – like Robson, who I played with – Pogba’s not in the same league,” Brazil said of the former England skipper, who played at Old Trafford from 1981 to 1994.
“Robbo was a true captain, a fierce competitor, and just someone who would never lie
A POG’S LIFE Brazil says he would be happy to drive Pogba to the airport himself down. If you weren’t ‘at it’ he would be screaming in your face, saying, ‘ This is cr*p, this is not good enough, we are better than this’.
“For me Robson was just a magnificent footballer. And he deserved that Captain Marvel tag all day long.
“I played with so many greats, like Ossie Ardiles, Glenn Hoddle and Kenny Dalglish, who could all affect any game they played in.
“But Robson’s mentality was on a different level. What a guy – on and off the pitch.”
