Saha, who scored 42 goals in 124 appearances for United, believes going public about wanting to leave a club ‘should not be done’ in football.
As quoted by the Manchester Evening News, the 40-year-old said: “I am a bit annoyed by that, but what can you do? I struggle to understand why players express themselves in this way. As much as they want to move, I understand that, but I don’t think it is something that should be done. I am especially gutted because he is a massive player for the club.”
“I hope that he can still remain [at United], but it is difficult to see that because when you express something like this, it becomes a difficult situation to manage. It is not going to be easy for Ole [Gunnar Solskjær],” the Frenchman added.
No concrete news regarding Pogba’s future has been reported as of yet, with both Juventus and Real Madrid expected to be priced out of a move for the 26-year-old midfielder. After a mixed season, debates have been created as to whether or not United should allow Pogba to leave and re-invest into making a more complete midfield, however, Saha does not see United’s number six as the problem, adding: “United are still trying to find their feet back since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson. These are some things that can give an indication of why he has struggled. Because he is a big and talented player, sometimes people expect him to do too much. He had a tremendous season, but people will still expect more.”
