Former Manchester United player and radio presenter Alan Brazil has labeled Paul Pogba a “bad egg” and “poison” amid a feud with Jose Mourinho.
Mourinho has stripped Paul Pogba of the vice-captaincy but the Red Devils boss denied claims he has fallen out with the midfielder.
The news came on a dramatic day at Old Trafford, where the hosts deservedly bowed out of the Carabao Cup to Derby on penalties.
It was reported that the decision was taken as the midfielder did not embody what the club is about, seemingly taking the tense relationship between the manager and their star turn to a new low.
Brazil said on his talkSPORT show: “If someone comes in with a massive offer, I think Jose would be saying, ‘I’ve made a massive mistake with this guy. I can’t control him, so I suggest we take the money’.
“But he’s got to make that decision before January, because he’s going to have to replace him. He’s going to have to get one or two in and say, ‘OK, we’re going to have to do without him’.
“If Fergie was there now, he [Pogba] wouldn’t be there. Not a hope in hell. Fergie would not trust someone with that reputation. Even a World Cup winner.
“I think Jose has been patient but I think his patience has gone now. I think he realises this man is a bad egg. Great player, World Cup winner, but poison.”
