Jamie Carragher admits Ronaldo forces one Man United star too far down the field

Jamie Carragher admits Ronaldo forces one Man United star too far down the field

Jamie Carragher says the arrival of the Portuguese legend back at Old Trafford means Paul Pogba is now playing out of position.

Carragher believes having the iconic forward in the squad is forcing one of Ole Gunnar Solksjaer’s other talents too far down the field.

He said on Monday Night Football: “You can’t play five attacking players, you can’t.

“Pogba’s got to come out of central midfield. He’s playing there and it comes back to the Ronaldo signing.

“As soon as Ronaldo comes in, Pogba has to play centre midfield to fit all the players in. I’m not saying (Pogba) should be out the team, but he’s not a centre midfield in a United shirt.

“What does Ole do? What’s your idea? I don’t see it in terms of a plan. If you’re going to press, everyone presses. Are they a high pressing team? Not really, not with Ronaldo in the team.

“This (lack of intensity) wouldn’t be accepted with a Pep or Klopp or Tuchel team. It’s both (a manager and a players problem).”
