Gary Neville says Paul Pogba's Man Utd exit 'leaves bad taste in mouth' as outgoing ace heads to his glitzy film launch | The Sun

GARY NEVILLE claimed Paul Pogba's Manchester United exit "leaves a bad taste in the mouth" as the midfielder enjoyed a glitzy party to celebrate the launch of his documentary.

The French midfielder, 29, rejoined the Red Devils from Juventus in a then-world-record £89million deal in 2016 but failed to shine during his six-year stay.

Pogba quit the club this summer after allowing his contract to expire and is expected to head back to the Old Lady on a four-year deal.

The 2018 World Cup winner was in Miami for the premiere of his documentary, Paul Pogba: The Pogmentary last night and was joined by stunning wife Zulay and footie pals including old Juventus team-mate Paulo Dybala.

In one scene, Pogba is seen dismissing a £300,000 contract offer from United as "nothing" during a chat with his late agent Mino Raiola.

And Neville has now claimed the last six years has left a "bad taste in the mouth".

Speaking on TikTok, Neville admitted: "I'm not bothered about Pogba's comments to be honest with you.

"I think that once a player has left, he can say whatever he wants. Fine, no problem.

"But I don't think he has performed well over the last six years.

"I don't think the club have performed well with him either, or handled him well.

"It's been a partnership that, to be fair, has failed on both sides so that is what you'd have to say on that one."

Neville continued: "There is no winner when a player leaves after six years with the money that has been spent and very little has been won.

"The player leaves dissatisfied and the club are dissatisfied with it as well.

"It leaves a bad taste in the mouth because it's the second time it's happened.

"You wish him all the best in the future at Juventus."

At one point in Pogba's documentary, the midfielder holds a conversation with Raiola as he drives his Rolls-Royce in Miami.

Chatting about a potential new contract, Pogba asks: "Did Manchester make a second offer?"

Raiola replies: "They absolutely want you to stay. For me, the offer doesn't reflect that. I told them, 'If you want him to stay, don't make that offer'.

"I will make them understand that if they really want you to stay and they want to build a project around you, this time they have to act differently and put the money on the table."

Pogba responds: "They're bluffing. How can you tell a player you absolutely want him and offer him nothing? Never seen that.

"My thought process is to show Manchester United that they made a mistake in waiting to give me a contract."

Pogba played 226 times in all competitions during his second stint at United.
