Zlatan Ibrahimovic says Class of ’92 criticise Paul Pogba because he left Man United

Manchester United v Southampton - Premier League

Paul Pogba has come in for a lot of criticism since returning to Manchester United in 2016.

Whether it be for his haircuts, social media posts or performances on the pitch, he’s regularly been the focus of negative comments.

And, interestingly, the criticism has often come from former Man United players.

Gary Neville said Pogba “can do one” after the Frenchman uploaded a photo on Instagram on the morning of Jose Mourinho’s sacking in December.

“To dance on the grave of the manager who has just been sacked is out of order,” Neville later told Sky Sports.

Meanwhile, Paul Scholes claimed last summer that Pogba was inconsistent and needed to use his brain more.

“You look at his game… he can be brilliant one week, not so good the next,” Scholes told beIN SPORTS.

“He needs to use his brain a little bit more to become a top footballer.”

Ibrahimovic calls out Class of '92

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has now criticised the former collective, now known as the Class of ’92, for singling Pogba out.

The former Man United striker believes their criticism comes because Pogba left the club in 2012 - and that goes against what it means to play under Sir Alex Ferguson.

“They are not there anymore. They are on TV and complaining all the time because they are not active in the club,” Ibrahimovic told the Mirror

“If you want to work in the club, go and search for work in the club.


“With Pogba, he was with United when he was young, then he went out and he came back.

“And in the circle of Ferguson, they don't like that. Because they stayed all their life under Ferguson and they never moved from Ferguson.

“And they didn't even talk if Ferguson didn't tell them to open their mouth.

“So now if they are talking, I don't know whether Ferguson gave them permission or not.”

The Class of ’92 also includes David Beckham, Nicky Butt, Phil Neville and Ryan Giggs, who formed a close-knit circle under Ferguson.

Only Butt remains at the club. He is the head of coaching at Man United’s academy.
