‘He’s poor’: Pundit explains why Liverpool would never sign this Man Utd star

Pundit John Collins has explained why he believes a club like Liverpool, under the management of Jurgen Klopp, would never sign a player of Paul Pogba’s character.

The 25-year-old moved back to England during the summer transfer window of 2016 as he rejoined his old club Manchester United in a record-breaking £89million deal at the time.

Ever since his move from Juventus, Pogba has endured a roller-coaster career in the Premier League, receiving praises for his displays on some occasions before being singled out for blame at other times.

Even though the midfielder managed to win the 2018 FIFA World Cup with France, Pogba has not escaped criticism from some pundits this season as his future in England continues to be placed in doubt.

The ex-Juventus star was quiet on the pitch once again as Manchester United were beaten 2-1 at Wolves on Tuesday evening. And after his performance, John Collins stated that Klopp would not be attracted to a player like him.

“I don’t think he would play for Pep Guardiola, with that lack of sprinting back, chasing, or Jurgen Klopp,” Collins said, as quoted by the Express

“That’s me personally. It wouldn’t surprise me if Zidane wants Paul Pogba. Obviously there’s a French connection, he’s a technical player which Zidane loves.

“And obviously they’ve got the money to buy any player they want Real Madrid, don’t they. I think it would be easier for him playing at Real Madrid, because they dominate every game, apart from Barcelona.

“But Manchester United in the last few years haven’t been dominating against the top five, six. So when you’re not dominating, you’ve got a lot of work to do without the ball.

“And he’s not good without the ball, he’s poor.”
