Watford sporting director makes surprising claim for Pogba’s future

Watford sporting director Cristiano Giaretta was made to speak on the future of France international Paul Pogba who is being linked away from Man United.

The past few transfer windows are not without speculations of a move for the World Cup winner away from Stamford Bridge with French Ligue 1 outfit Paris Saint-German, his former club, Juventus and Real Madrid all interested.

However, the latest development that sparked reaction was the claim by the France international’s agent, Mino Raiola who claimed that he client is unhappy at Old Trafford, giving the hint that a move is imminent.

His words “There’s no point beating about the bush. It’s better to speak out clearly, look forward and avoid wasting time to find culprits. Paul is unhappy at Manchester United, he can’t manage to express himself like he wants to and like people expect him to.

“He needs to change team, he needs a change of scenery. He has a contract that will expire in a year and a half, in the summer of 2022, but the best solution for all parties is a transfer in the next window.”

Meanwhile, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had stated late last year that the player is still important to the team and highly needed. He made these claims of Paul Pogba: “I think I said during the week, of course, that this is a team game. Paul is part of this team, he’s very focused on contributing when he’s here,” Solskjaer said.

“He’s got a hunger, an appetite to play. He wants to play, he wants to train. There have been other players that have refused to train or play, they’re not here anymore of course, but Paul has not once done that. He’s just focused on performing when he gets the chance.

“That’s the good thing about Paul. He has got the quality, but has also got the desire to do well when he comes on as he did against Leipzig – he did have a positive impact” Solskjaer added

Howbeit, the Watford chief, Cristiano Giaretta said he would be surprised if Paul Pogba lands in Italy this summer but he wondered how his weekly wages would be paid.

“I wouldn’t be surprised to see him again in Italy. But I struggle to think that anyone can pay his salary. This market will be made up of many exchanges. No major players. There are clubs that evaluate loans with right to buy.” He said.

Following Man United’s 1-0 win over Burnley, in which Pogba’s goal sent the Red Devils to the top of the Premier League table, the Frenchman made a claim against what was earlier stated by Raiola.

“I’m always happy when I win,” announced Pogba, with a wide smile. “Obviously today we won so I’m very happy. I’m happy we played well and happy we are at the top.

Rio Ferdinand, has said the Manchester United inexperience could stop themfrom winning the Champions League this season.

Man United manager has brought in Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane this summer, as he seeks to win his first title at Old Trafford.

However, the team have not won any silverware since the Europa League final in 2017.

Their rivals, Liverpool and Chelsea have won both the Premier League and Champions League while Manchester City have won last season’s fina, their third league title in four years under experienced coach Pep Guardiola.

“I think Man United’s not a problem, but where they’re behind the other three English teams, is the experience of winning things.

“All the other three English teams have won things, whether it be the Champions League or the Premier League. Man United have yet to do that as this group.

“That’s where they are lacking, and that’s where they’ve got to play catch up and they’ve got to do that this season. The transfer window for them has been impeccable, but that’s got to translate into trophies,” Ferdinand told BT Sport.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has lambasted his side following a 2-1 defeat to Young Boys on yesterday.

Manchester United began their Champions League campaign with a shock loss to Young Boys.

The Red Devil took the lead when Cristiano Ronaldo scored his third goal since he returned to Old Trafford.

Later on, the game turned around after Aaron Wan-Bissaka received a straight red card for his challenge on Christopher Martins.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has lay blames on his team following a 2-1 defeat to Young Boys on Tuesday.

The Switzerland side eventually drew level, thanks to Moumi Ngameleu’s strike.

The match should have been a draw but Lingard tried to find David de Gea but his pass found Theoson Siebatcheu.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has seriously warned his squad that they must learn from their mistakes if they are to avoid an early exit from the championship competition.

“A lack of concentration, you make a mistake and you get done. We did that last year, conceding two sloppy counter-attacks against Basaksehir and lost that game in the last seconds today.

“So we know we’ve given ourselves a more difficult task. We did last year when everyone thought we were through after two games.

“You need 10 or 12 points: win your home games and one away from home. We’ve lost the opportunity to get three points, but we’ve got two home games next and got to focus on those two,” Solskjaer said after the game.
