France international Frank Leboeuf has warned under fire Paul Pogba to desist from words that take swipe at Man United.
There have been a lot of media bashing on the World Cup winner over his recent performance at Old Trafford, the reason why he is rumoured to be leaving the club any moment from now.
Paul Pogba has sat on the bench for the past couple of games with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer playing Fred and Scott McTominay ahead of him in the midfield. This sends a message that all is not well with the supposed best player of the team.
However, after enjoining more play8ing time with the national team, Paul Pogba took a swipe at the Man United team by stating that they do not have fun at Old Trafford, adding that the France national team camp is more of a family than the dressing room at Man United.

He told RTL that “I had never known such a difficult period in my career. The France team is a breath of fresh air, the group is exceptional, it’s magic. It’s not that in the club we don’t have fun, but here it’s not the same. We laugh. It’s really a family.”
In his reaction to Paul Pogba’s statement, Frank Leboeuf said the former Juventus player risks burning bridges with comments that could be misinterpreted.
“‘You have to be always cautious of what you say, It’s meaning that he is belonging to a group with friends which is not the case with Manchester United” Leboeuf told ESPN when asked about the midfielder’s comments.
Meanwhile, Paul Pogba was impressive on Saturday night’s UEFA Nations League win over Portugal and is likely to be in the side once again when they host Sweden on Tuesday.
It is expected that he would be considered for starting roles by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer when the Premier League resumes.
