Pogba sends rallying cry to Man Utd stars as he speaks out after Liverpool red

Paul Pogba has sent a rallying cry to his Manchester United teammates as he spoke out for the first time following his red card in the defeat to Liverpool.

The French midfielder produced a disastrous cameo off the bench on Sunday as United were thrashed 5-0 by their arch rivals at Old Trafford.

Having been subbed on at half time with the hosts already four goals down, Pogba's afternoon lasted just a quarter of an hour before he was dismissed by Anthony Taylor.

The referee gave Pogba his marching orders following a VAR review for a reckless challenge on Naby Keita.

Pogba took to his Instagram to react to the result as he wrote: “No time to feel sorry for ourselves.

“Wake up, step up and make the next days better.”

The 28-year-old is becoming an increasingly polarising figure at United due to his on and off-field antics, with rumours about his future being a constant distraction.

Pogba and his agent, Mino Raiola, have repeatedly stoked the fire with their comments since he re-joined the club from Juventus in 2016.

The World Cup winners contract is up at the end of the season and, having been linked with Paris Saint-Germain, some feel his time at United is nearing its end.

Should Manchester United sell Paul Pogba in January? Let us know in the comments section below.

One of those with that view is former United midfielder Paul Scholes, who believes Pogba may have played his last match for the club on Sunday.

“You’d have to think, if Ole’s still a manager there, will we see Paul Pogba again in a United shirt," Scholes said after the match.

“He’s caused mayhem over the last couple of years. Everybody knows what a talent he is, everybody trusts him, every manager trusts him, tried to give him his head and let him be the player he’s been.

“But with all the commotion, not signing his contract, almost holding the club to ransom, and then he comes on and does something like that.

“Look, he probably will play [again] won’t he. But I don’t think they will be missing anything if he doesn’t.

“He’s had numerous chances, he keeps saying he lacks consistency, but that is just [a lack of] discipline and disrespect for your manager and your team-mates, what he’s done.”

Pogba has featured in all of United's Premier League and Champions League matches so far this season, starting nine of the 12 fixtures.

He also has seven league assists to his name, although they all came in the opening four matches of the season.
