Gary Neville has slammed Paul Pogba for “playing how he was pre-Ole’s arrival”.

Pogba was one of Manchester United’s most-improved players under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the months after his interim appointment.

The Frenchman scored nine goals and assisted seven in his first 14 games under the Norwegian, but has only two goals – both penalties in the win over West Ham – and no assists since the start of last month.

Pogba was far from United’s biggest problem in the 3-0 Champions League quarter-final second-leg defeat to Barcelona in the Nou Camp, but Neville took aim at the 26-year-old regardless.

“Pogba’s now playing how he was pre-Ole’s arrival,” he told beIN SPORTS.

“I thought he was really poor , rolling his foot over the ball all the time, playing for himself, not popping it off and moving, didn’t look interested at times.

“But he’s a great player, and can be a great player, he just needs to get that focus back.”
