anchester United legend Peter Schmeichel has criticised the performance of Paul Pogba after he scored in this week’s draw at Burnley.
United dropped out of the Premier League top four following another disappointing result, having taken the lead when Pogba scored in the 18th minute.
But after Jay Rodriguez scored to earn rock bottom Burnley a point, there was justifiable criticism of United’s inability to kill games off.
“I said before the game, Pogba played fantastic on Friday night. If Pogba plays like that we want to keep him, we desperately want to keep him,” the Dane told Premier League Productions.
“But he was completely out of the game today and you can’t have players doing that.
“That’s not good enough for Man United. At Man United, you’ve got to have a very, very high low-level and at a minimum you’ve got to perform to that.
“You’ve got to have this type of urgency and understanding of when you need to push forward to get the goal you need.
“In the last 20 minutes, the way Man United played was all in the same tempo and all in the same pattern.
“There were no pressure balls into Burnley’s box. There were no questions being asked.
“Having played in the team, having understood what was required of you, that’s one of the more disappointing things for me to see that has gone out of it.
“I think most of this is with the players. It’s not the coaches or the managers.”
