Carragher: 'Pogba is the most overrated player I have seen in my life'

Jamie Carragher has encouraged Manchester United to "get rid" of Paul Pogba following the most recent provocative remarks from the player's representative, Mino Raiola

With United planning for a

UEFA Champions League

clash against RB Leipzig on Tuesday, Mino Raiola took steps to remove the concentration from the game by saying, "I can say that it’s over for

Paul Pogba

at Manchester United." 


Red Devils

right-back Gary Neville slammed Raiola for the juncture of his remarks, and Carragher has targeted the player and his agent - and demanded the club to sell the player out. 

"Get rid. I have been saying this for 12 months." answered Carragher when was asked about the subject.

"Oh my god, he is the most overrated player I have seen in my life."

Carragher feels Pogba would have been very much aware of what Raiola was intending to state, and didn't keep down with his perspectives. 

"I think the two of them are a disgrace," he said. "We will all look at the agent now, and say ‘ask Pogba what he thinks.’ 

"Agents in this day and age are not just agents, they are a parent, the best friend, the financial advisor, they book holidays; they go away together.

"He will be Pogba’s best mate, so Pogba will be well aware of what was going to come out of his mouth. And if he wasn’t, he should sack his agent."

While Carragher feels the Red Devils should move Pogba out, he is uncertain where the 27-year-old will go - and says he would be


if Barcelona or Real Madrid make the move.

"I don’t know where he’s going to go," Carragher said. "Who is going to have him? 

"Manchester United want rid of him. Don’t kid yourself. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been playing Scott McTominay and Fred in front of him and he put him in [against West Ham] as he was resting players.

"There are only two clubs better than Man United, and that’s Barcelona and Real Madrid. By better, I mean who players you can understand going to. So [Cristiano] Ronaldo goes from Manchester United to Real Madrid. Everyone sees Barcelona and Real Madrid as the pinnacle of club football.

"There is no chance in the world Real Madrid or Barcelona will buy him. I will be flabbergasted if they come in for him.

"Maybe there is a French thing with [Zinedine] Zidane. But I would not go anywhere near him."
