Former Premier League striker Nigel Jemson insists that Paul Pogba “rubs people up the wrong way” after he failed to leave Manchester United in the summer.
Reports at the beginning of the transfer window suggested that Pogba was hoping to seal a move to PSG in the summer.
That deal did not happen, of course, and the France international has subsequently remained at Old Trafford.
Pogba has laid on five assists in three games thus far this term, including a staggering four-assist haul against Leeds United in the 5-1 win on the opening weekend.
United have yet to lose, also drawing with Southampton and beating Wolves, but Jemson thinks that Pogba will be seen as an irritation in the United dressing room due to his consistent flirting with an exit, and his general inconsistency.
Speaking to Football FanCast, he said: “He’s a top, top player. The problem with Paul Pogba is he likes the limelight, he needs to be centre of attention, he rubs people up the wrong way at times.
“He’s not consistent with his performances. His agent doesn’t help him. So all these things come together and I’m not going to say he’s a cancer in the dressing room, because I don’t know, I don’t know the fella, I don’t know what the dressing room’s like, but it can’t help it when your team-mates are reading that he wants to go and he’s not signing a new contract and he’s doing this and doing that.
“He’s going to rub people up the wrong way. But when he’s got his head right, he’s a top player.”
Pogba is currently on international duty with France but will return to United action against Newcastle United.
