Neil Warnock speaks about former Man Utd midfielder Paul Pogba

Former Sheffield United boss Neil Warnock thinks Chelsea and Man Utd will be better off without Romelu Lukaku and Paul Pogba this season.

Lukaku has returned to Inter Milan on loan until the end of the season after his £97.5m transfer to Chelsea last summer.

The Belgium international only scored eight Premier League goals as Chelsea finished third in the Premier League and he was criticised for his performances throughout the campaign.

Pogba has also sealed a move away from Man Utd with the France international set to join Juventus on a free transfer after running his deal down at Old Trafford.

The Frenchman was seen as a negative influence around Old Trafford by many, going back to his high-profile spat with former Man Utd boss Jose Mourinho.

And Warnock reckons both Chelsea and Man Utd will be better off without the duo as they are “all about ‘me, me, me’ and not the team”.

“Good riddance, that’s what I say,” Warnock said on talkSPORT.

“I think both of them are all about ‘me, me, me’ and not the team or the club. They’re the type who score a goal, kiss the badge and then they’ve transferred next week.

“I don’t miss people like that. I didn’t think he [Pogba] did anything at Man United and I don’t think he’s [Lukaku] done anything at Chelsea.

“Yes, Lukaku scored a couple of a good goals, but his teammates will be far better without him. The manager is quite lucky because he hasn’t got to worry about him. I think Tuchel will be quite pleased about it.”

Taking to Twitter yesterday, Warnock also claimed that Tottenham are a more attractive club to join at the moment than Arsenal.

Warnock wrote: “As a player, I would say Spurs are more attractive a club to join than Arsenal. There’s a lack of leaders at both clubs and neither can guarantee trophies. The difference is Conte, who gives Spurs that edge, real leadership and he is a born winner.”
