Manchester United’s defeat by Everton was ‘disrespectful’ to players, club and fans, Paul Pogba says

Manchester United’s performance in their 4-0 defeat at Everton was ‘disrespectful’ to everyone associated with the club, Paul Pogba claims.

The Red Devils were run ragged at Goodison Park on Sunday, with Richarlison, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Lucas Digne and Theo Walcott all scoring to condemn United to their most embarrassing defeat since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement.

Everton’s rout of Manchester United was one of the shock results of the season

The result dealt a real blow to United’s top four hopes also, as they are now three points behind fourth place Chelsea, and their game in hand over the Blues just happens to be Wednesday’s local derby with title-chasing rivals Manchester City.

There was widespread criticism of the Old Trafford outfit following Sunday’s clash, though Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the manager, remained largely free of the blame.

It was United’s players who were instead vilified post-game, with many questioning the attitudes of the likes of David de Gea, Anthony Martial and Pogba, the France midfielder whose mindset was previously doubted by former manager Jose Mourinho.
