Sky Sports analyst and Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher gives Scathing review of Paul Pogba

Speaking on Sky’s Monday Night Football TV program, the Ex-footballer turned pundit believes it was less Guardiola’s tactical Masterclass and more of the United’s Midfielders’s indiscipline that was responsible for the Red’s Loss.

I don’t think Guardiola got it massively right, I think Mourinho got it tactically wrong,’ said Carragher.

‘He (Mourinho) wasn’t helped specifically by the performance of Pogba.

‘For a central midfielder in a game of that magnitude it was one of the most ill-disciplined performances I’ve seen in the first 45 minutes.

‘It was like the best kid in a school yard – he does what he wants, he runs where he wants.

‘I never thought I’d say this, but I felt so sorry for Fellaini… because he was left on his own, stranded and Over worked

‘Forget what Pogba has cost or has done what he’s done… he’s not a kid,’ he added.

Carragher who the jury is still out with respect to his Punditry skills has been known to make the odd 1 or 2 bizarre comments in the past and it’ll be interesting to hear his take when Paul registers good performances.
