EPL: He doesn’t work hard – Carragher warns Man City against signing Man United star
Former Liverpool star, Jamie Carragher has told Premier League leader, Manchester City they would be making a big mistake by signing Paul Pogba on a free transfer from Manchester United.
Carragher further hit out at the France international for his lack of work ethic, as the 29-year-old is set to leave Old Trafford at the end of the season.
Pogba will leave Old Trafford at the end of the season when his contract expires and reports in England suggest that the World Cup winner may be heading to United’s next door neighbours, Manchester City.
And Carragher feels the Frenchman’s questionable work rate and discipline makes him a poor fit for Manchester City and warned against the move.
“I wouldn’t go anywhere near him. [City] win the league every year, they get 95-100 points every year. He doesn’t work hard enough or as much as the other players,” said Carragher on Sky Sports.
On the suggestion that Pogba might change and start working harder under Guardiola, the former Liverpool man Carragher, added, “So he just starts now? Why wasn’t he doing it for Manchester United? I’m talking about working hard.
“That’s a massive problem for me. He could do it… but he doesn’t want to… he just doesn’t work hard enough for a Pep Guardiola team.”
