The France international’s strained relationship with manager Jose Mourinho has been a big talking point this season
Former Crystal Palace owner Simon Jordan believes Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is a “myth” and says he’d sell him “in a heartbeat” if he was in charge at Old Trafford.
Pogba has been at loggerheads with manager Jose Mourinho all season, with the 25-year-old failing to impress in what has been a dreadful campaign for United to date – who lie eighth in the Premier League.
And Jordan, speaking exclusively to talkSPORT, believes the Red Devils would be better off without the ex-Juventus man – and should start backing Mourinho more than they have been.
On The Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, he said: “If I’m Ed Woodward and my champion was Mourinho I’d want to do something quite extreme to support him.
“I’d publicly get right behind him and put a stick right up Pogba’s backside in terms of straightening him out, so he knew where I stood.
“Frankly whoever wanted to sign Pogba in the first place… I’d sent them home in a cab!
“I would sell Pogba in a heartbeat.
“I think he is a malaise and has far too much to say for himself – and most of it has no relevance.”
Jordan feels the £90m-rated midfielder is vastly overrated and says, despite being suggested elsewhere, he believes he had little to do with France’s World Cup success in Russia.
He added: “His performances on the pitch are far and away beneath what one expects of a player who is reported to be of the quality he is.
“The World Cup success with France was (N’Golo) Kante, (Antoine) Griezmann and (Kylian) Mbappe excelling in their individual roles.
“I think there was a lot of noise and rubbish coming from Pogba inside the dressing room – I think he’s all myth.”
