Former Crystal Palace owner Simon Jordan has become the latest person to criticize Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba. 
The 2018 World Cup winner Pogba has been strongly criticized for his sub-par displays as United struggle to achieve consistency this season. He is also rumoured to have a fractured relationship with Red Devils manager Jose Mourinho and has been strongly linked with a move away from Old Trafford in the near-future. 
United fans and perhaps Mourinho as well would have been hoping that Pogba could carry his form to the club after he starred for France during their World Cup triumph in Russia but it was not to be. He has shown flashes of quality this season but has also been reduced to being a spectator in his fair share of games. 
The 25-year-old has been involved in his fair share of controversy off the pitch as well this season. He was stripped off the vice-captaincy after the reports of him wanting to move away from the club emerged in the media. This obviously suggests that there was some truth to the reports. 
He also publicly criticized his club’s tactics following their 1-1 draw against Wolverhampton Wanderers in September. 
Unless Mourinho is sacked, Pogba could be headed for the United exit door for a second time. 
“If I’m Ed Woodward and my champion was Mourinho I’d want to do something quite extreme to support him,” Jordan told talkSPORT.
“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 placed……I’d send 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.
“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.”
