Rio Ferdinand not happy with Manchester United star after Leicester comments

Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has said that he wouldn’t be happy with Paul Pogba if he was his teammate following his comments after the Leicester City defeat.

Man United lost their second Premier League game of the season after losing 4-2 at away to Leicester.

Many would easily say that was one of United’s worst performances under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and would also admit they deserved the defeat, though Pogba, who was atrocious against the Foxes, admitted to such.

Pogba raised concerns about Solskjaer’s job after he said there needs to be a change at Manchester United in order to arrest the cause of their recent poor form.

‘We deserved to lose,’ Pogba told the BBC.

“To be honest, we have been having these kind of games for a long time.

‘We have not found the problem, conceding easy goals, stupid goals. We need to be more mature, play with more experience and arrogance in a good way. We need to find something, we need to change.

‘We need to find the right mentality and the right tactic. Stick with it and resolve the problem.’

Paul Pogba seemingly took aim at Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after Leicester City loss

And though Ferdinand sympathises with the France star, he says it doesn’t ‘sit well’ with him that Pogba is openly criticising Solskjaer.

‘I dunno man it doesn’t sit well with me when I see that,’ said Ferdinand.

‘I’ll be honest if I was in a changing room and a team-mate said I wouldn’t be happy.

‘I’d be straight in asking him what he meant, what does this mean? Unless I actually agreed with him but I just think Pogba is an honest guy, that’s what I like about him.

‘He’s very passionate, he wants to win. That says to me that there’s a frustration, an underlying frustration within the camp there. He’s not hiding it, he can’t hide it.

‘Normally you get bog standard answers [in post-match interviews] but there he said a few things that pose questions.’
