A number of senior Manchester United players have been left ‘exasperated’ at the ‘behaviour’ of some of their teammates, including Paul Pogba.
According to Chris Wheeler of the Daily Mail, United staff had to be sent to the home of Pogba earlier this month after the midfielder failed to turn up for a warm-down session.
The incident occurred after United beat Arsenal 3-1 at the Emirates Stadium, a game in which Pogba impressed but was also sent off for a second-half tackle on Hector Bellerin.
Wheeler reports that Pogba ‘failed to appear at Carrington’ the following morning, and did not respond to phone calls, so ‘support staff’ were sent to ‘rouse him’.
But this is just one such example of behaviour from a number of both first-team and youth players that has left three senior ones ‘exasperated’.
Wheeler cites captain Michael Carrick, as well as Ashley Young and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, as the angered trio.
“Some of them look as if they’re taking the mickey the way they’re ordering things,’ said Carrick a source.
“It makes you wonder what would happen if they ever ended up at Rochdale or Bury. They would be stuck in a room wondering what to do.”
So Pogba has now p*ssed off Carrick, Young, Ibrahimovic and Paul Scholes? Impressive.
