Rangnick dismissive of Pogba’s controversial comments on France duty

Ralf Rangnick has dismissed Paul Pogba’s comments on international duty after the midfielder complained about his lack of a defined role at Manchester United.

Pogba publicly questioned his role at club level whilst representing France last week and is expected to leave the Red Devils after six indifferent seasons at the end of the season.


The 29-year-old – who was dropped for United’s Champions League exit to Atletico Madrid last month – is out of contract this summer and has failed to agree terms on a new deal.

Rangnick was asked on Pogba’s comments ahead of the club’s clash with Leicester this weekend, but insisted he has more important issues to focus on ahead of a must-win game with the Foxes.

“I’ve got enough to do now to prepare the team for the next game an important game,” Rangnick said at his pre-match press conference.

”And I don’t think it makes sense to interpret or just judge what he has said in an interview, it doesn’t make sense. I heard he said he had played in different positions in the last couple of weeks.

“Since the game against West Ham we have lost three strikers, Anthony Martial, Mason Greenwood and Edinson Cavani – who is injured again and will be out for the next couple of weeks.

“On top of that if Paul was still injured himself, with Bruno or Scott McTominay, you have to play in a different role. This is a normal thing.”
