Former Liverpool star, Jamie Carragher has warned Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola not to sign Man United midfielder, Paul Pogba.
Carragher further hit out at the France international for his lack of work ethic, as the 29-year-old is set to leave Old Trafford at the end of the season.
Pogba will leave Old Trafford at the end of the season when his contract expires and reports in England suggest that the World Cup winner may be heading to United’s next door neighbours, Manchester City.
And Carragher feels the Frenchman’s questionable work rate and discipline makes him a poor fit for Manchester City and warned against the move.
“I wouldn’t go anywhere near him. [City] win the league every year, they get 95-100 points every year. He doesn’t work hard enough or as much as the other players,” said Carragher on Sky Sports.
On the suggestion that Pogba might change and start working harder under Guardiola, the former Liverpool man Carragher, added, “So he just starts now? Why wasn’t he doing it for Manchester United? I’m talking about working hard.
“That’s a massive problem for me. He could do it… but he doesn’t want to… he just doesn’t work hard enough for a Pep Guardiola team.”
Pogba is a practicing Muslim. He has been married to Bolivian model María Zulay Salaues since 2019, and they have two children together. Pogba is also multilingual; other than his native French, he is also fluent in English, Italian and Spanish.
In August 2017, Pogba spoke about the possibility of openly gay footballers in the Premier League. During a UEFA respect campaign in Monaco, Pogba said of potential gay footballers that they should be considered “equal”, stating further that what “he does in his private life has nothing to do with the player” and that “You have just to respect him … We are all equal when we play football.”
In March 2022, Pogba said that he had suffered from depression whilst being managed by Jose Mourinho at Manchester United during 2018.
