LONDON – Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba must distance himself from speculation that he is set to end an unhappy spell at Old Trafford, and focus on pre-season training until a decision is reached on his future, club legend Bryan Robson said.
Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola recently told The Times that the 26-year-old intends to leave the club, while the player said in Tokyo last month that he thought it might be time for a “new challenge somewhere else”.
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hit out at the media during a pre-season tour of Australia, saying there was an agenda against the French World Cup winner.
“There’s a lot of speculation in the media about Paul. He’s a top player,” former United captain Robson, who spent 13 years at the club, told Sky Sports.
“You’re a United player, you’re contracted to them, so you have to give everything for the club, the team and the fans.
