Former Manchester United great, Rio Ferdinand has blasted the club over Paul Pogba’s situation at Old Trafford.
Manchester United midfielder Paul pogba future has been a subject of discussion over the week, with the player agent, Mino Raiola claiming the player is not happy at the premier league club.
Also, the French international agent claimed his time at Old Trafford is “over”.
Rio Ferdinand has reacted to the situation and believes Man United have dealt poorly with the whole thing describing it as “disgusting”
“I think the timing is disgusting from a player’s agent and an important player at the club,” Ferdinand told BT Sport.
“But I’m going to shift the focus more to Manchester United, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and Ed Woodward probably as well. How are you allowing an agent to talk like this?
“This is not the first time. You nip it in the bud the first time he’s done it. It’s not the first time he’s spoken and put the focus on United.
“Nip that in the bud for the first time. I was at United when Wayne Rooney was talking about a contract, we were all there, he was talking about leaving Manchester United.
“Sir Alex Ferguson went in the media straight away and said, “Listen, he’s been advised badly by his agents, and this will not happen again, and I’m going to nip it in the bud”. A couple of days later, Wayne Rooney signs a new contract.
“If you do not nip these things in the bud… Van de Beek comes in, doesn’t play, his agent in the first month speaking in the media – how is that happening?’
“If you’re the player, you control the agent. I would say, “Shut up! What are you talking about? Don’t speak on my behalf and make me look bad”.
“But take that out of it, if you’re Manchester United, own the situation, don’t be dictated to and controlled in that situation.
Pogba has been linked with a move to Real Madrid, over the years with his countryman Zinedine Zidane at the Managerial post of the club.
