The former United man and German international says the Red Devils should let him leave.

According to BBC Sport, he said ” Pogba should not be stopped” when asked about the possibility of him leaving Old Trafford.

“If a player wants to leave the club, you shouldn’t stop him,” he said.

“You need players who are 100% into the club and care about the club, that’s the only way you can survive at the top level and have success.”

The talismanic Frenchman made the return “home” as he put it when he was signed from Juventus for a then-world record 89 million pounds.

This was supposed to be the return of the wayward child. Returning to bring back the glory days at Manchester United. Plus the beginning of Ed Woodwards very Galactico era.

Things have not quite gone to plan for Paul Pogba.

He has had a very public falling out with the previous manager Jose Mourinho. Who stripped him of the vice-captaincy and all but called him a virus within the team.

After an apparent rejuvenation and the forming of an exceptional relationship with his former youth team boss and current United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. It was thought all was back to normal.

Now after some public criticism from the fans, Pogba and his agent Mino Riola have come out and said they want out of Manchester.

To add fuel to the fire, Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane and Pogba have publically flirted with the idea of working together.

Now Schweinsteiger is not critical of Solskjaer or Manchester United. In fact quite the contrary.

The Bayern Munich legend was full of praise for the new man at the helm of the English giants, saying.

“I’m glad they have re-started their team and the way they play.”

“It’s about time because United is a huge club with amazing supporters and they have players in the squad who can really be dangerous.”

“They should play a nice way of football and I really hope that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer lets the team play to their abilities and as far as I can see, he has done a good job.”

“I would really like to see them win the Premier League.”
