Premier League legend and pundit Thierry Henry slammed Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba after the French midfielder put in a poor display in the ​Red Devils' shock home defeat against bottom club West Brom.


A goal from Jay Rodriguez gave the visitors a stunning win and ​sealed the Premier League title for Manchester City, a week after United put in one of their best displays in the Manchester derby.




Pogba put in an inspired performance in that game, scoring twice and leading his side to a win. However, yesterday, the former Juventus star was unable to have a meaningful impact and was hooked off with just 58 minutes on the clock. Speaking after the game, Sky Sports pundit Henry went in on his compatriot, slamming his lack of consistency.


As reported by the ​Daily Mail, Henry said, "As soon as the game started, something was weird — the atmosphere of the stadium, the team — it’s so weird from what we saw from that team a week ago. The commitment, the desire, and I asked if Pogba can do that all the time, the way he played against City. The answer is nope."


Manager ​Jose Mourinho slammed his side for complicating things in his post-match press conference and Henry added to it, claiming that he felt early on in the game that West Brom could nick a shock result.




He continued, "[Mourinho] was trying to calm the players down and he has experience. He saw that result way before we saw it. He had a feeling that he needed to speak to the players during the week."


"He told them be careful it is going to be different against West Brom and I go back to Pogba: why didn’t you and the rest of the team do what you did against City all season? West Brom outworked them; they wanted to go out and hurt them. After 10 minutes, I turned and there was a weird atmosphere and I could only see West Brom scoring."


The result leaves United second in the table, with Liverpool breathing down on their necks. The Red Devils are next in action in the Premier League when they take on Bournemouth on Wednesday.
