Patrice Evra reveals what happened in Paul Pogba's private chat with Manchester United board

Patrice Evra has claimed Paul Pogba spoke to the Manchester United board about leaving long before Mino Raiola's bombshell announcement on Monday. Raiola rocked United on the eve of their Champions League clash with RB Leipzig with the announcement that Pogba is unhappy at Old Trafford and wants to leave. However, according to Pogba's good friend Evra, this has been a long time coming. Speaking to Sky Sports, he said: "There was lots of negative talk with what he's been saying during his period with the French national team, the fans didn't appreciate it. But I think it's normal he’s starting today with Fred and Bruno missing. I think Ole wants Pogba to prove himself so he can be on the team sheet all the time. "The position of Paul is really easy. He spoke to the board, he wanted to leave Man United to a certain point, they kept him, so it's difficult to blame him because he'’s been honest with the board. Now he's playing, he needs to respect the shirt, his team-mates, the manager and then he'll have a great chance. "I can already feel that people just wait for Paul to fail to again criticise him. It's been a problem because they didn't deal with it at the beginning of the season, in truth." Source- Mirror Join us on Telegram
