EPL: He’s not worth the risk – Robinson advises Man City against signing Man United player


Former England goalkeeper, Paul Robinson has advised Manchester City against signing Manchester United midfielder, Paul Pogba, this summer.

Pogba is all set to leave Man United this summer and has been linked with a move to Man City.

His current deal with Man United will expire at the end of the season.

Speaking to Football Insider, Robinson said the France World Cup winner is not worth the risk even though Man City manager, Pep Guardiola, can get the best out of him.

“I’m surprised [Manchester] City want him. At the same time, I think Pep Guardiola is a manager who could handle him and could get the best out of him.

“Pogba needs to be given guidance and direction. The ability is there. He is a dressing-room wrecker, though. I would not touch him with a barge pole. I would not have him in my team.”

Robinson added, “There are too many side issues. It’s all about him. It’s a circus in the dressing room that City don’t need. I am sure Guardiola could channel him in the right way, but is it worth the risk? They don’t need to take that risk, in my eyes.”
