Paul Pogba does not respect his Manchester United team-mates enough because he is trying to do everything on his own, according to ex-Red Devil Paul Parker.

The 23-year-old re-signed for United in the summer transfer window for a world record £89million from Italian giants Juventus.

However, some fans and pundits alike have been quick to criticise the France international’s start at Old Trafford, with Parker claiming that the midfielder is too greedy and needs to show more respect to his team-mates.

Parker spent five years with the Red Devils between 1991 and 1996, and has wondered if Pogba has actually been as good as what they expected when he arrived.

“It’s impossible for Pogba to justify his fee unless he scores fifteen goals a season and has 25 assists,” Parker told 888sport.

“The problem is that he’s not playing with the same calibre of players that he had at Juventus so he’s trying to do too much and holds onto the ball too long. He never had so many touches of the ball at Juventus because maybe now he feels he doesn’t have the players around him who he respects.

“Maybe if he kept it more simple and began respecting the people around he’d do more instead of just flashes.

“He talks of how many times he’s hit the woodwork but I’m pretty sure that Opta count that as being off target. How is that now becoming a positive? Add those eight times to the other occasions he’s been off target and it doesn’t look good.
