Paul Pogba Under Attack After Penalty Miss

Manchester United legend, Gary Neville, has blasted Paul Pogba after a penalty miss in their 1-1 draw against Wolves.

He described the miss as “embarrassing” as he observed that Marcus Rashford should have taken the penalty.

The miss was the only perfect opportunity for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ‘s side to regain the lead after Pogba was fouled by Conor Coady inside the box. 

Neville raged: “Before he took the pen I was fuming. I was thinking it’s typical Pogba, selfish.

“Why are you even thinking of taking a penalty off of a player?

“The only reason I’m holding back from calling it treacherous is that before the one against Chelsea, Pogba and Rashford had a long chat and maybe it was Rashford who took it off Pogba against Chelsea.

“Despite that, I don’t like it. Why is there a debate about who should take a penalty? There should never be one.

“Pogba has taken and missed penalties so you think he has had his chance. Rashford scored last week so let him take the pen.

“There wasn’t a leader on the pitch. They couldn’t make a decision. Something wasn’t right.

“This is a Manchester United penalty. This is not a tombola or Under-5s on the playground. It wasn’t decisive.

“It was like ‘go on mate you have it’. They should be deciding this in the dressing room.”
