Raiola, who has always glided his player's despondency in the media, did so once more, uncovering that he accepted the 27-year-old is done with playing for the club.

Saha anyway feels that Pogba may have been gotten unprepared by his representative's public acting, while at the same time pounding home his dissatisfactions at the evident absence of exchange between the different sides. 

"I’m baffled with the situation with Paul Pogba," he told Genting Bet. "I really love Pogba, he’s someone I consider highly, but this communication is a joke.

"I was shocked and I can't believe something like this happened because this game was so important for United. 

"I’m not speaking as a fan, I’m speaking about Manchester United in general, you think that it’s a big game, going into the last 16. You need that focus, but the focus was on one player.

"This is unbelievable, the headlines were about Pogba because of the agent – it wasn’t even Pogba who said anything.

"I can’t understand how these things can happen. This is absolutely against the interests of the club. 

"I can't believe that Paul knew about it, I just can’t believe it. We need to find out what happened as there might be more to it but the timing of it was really bad.

"I still think that obviously Paul has got tremendous talent and is still a good player with a lot of ego, which is really helpful to actually prove people wrong, and this is what I want from him.

"He definitely needs to step up his game because there is a team who need to win."

On Fernandes, Saha was explicit in his commendation, hailing the Portuguese as one of the bests in the

Premier League


"Bruno Fernandes is up there with De Bruyne in terms of status," he added. "You look at every game and he has had an impact.

"In terms of leadership, he’s the only one at the club that has shown leadership and helped lift the whole club. He has that kind of attitude and emotion to actually put people under pressure. 

"He has been at the club one year, but it seems like he has been at the club 10 years, it’s amazing."
