Champions League: Lazy cheat – Chelsea hero, Desailly blasts Man Utd star

Chelsea hero, Marcel Desailly has hit out at Manchester United’s Paul Pogba, branding the France World Cup winner as ‘lazy’ and ‘cheating’ as the Red Devils lost 1-0 against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League round of 16 second-leg tie on Tuesday.

Pogba came on for Bruno Fernandes, midway through the second half but struggled to make an impact as Ralf Rangnick’s side was unable to score an equalizer following Renan Lodi’s first-half header.

Atletico Madrid eliminated Man United from the Champions League at Old Trafford on a 2-1 aggregate win to qualify for the quarter-final.

Quality-wise, you cannot compare Paul Pogba to Fred or [Scott] McTominay or [Nemanja] Matic,” Desailly told beIN SPORTS.

But he’s lazy, if you allow him to be some kind of playmaker behind [Cristiano] Ronaldo, he will take advantage of it.

When he goes well, then he’s fantastic. When he doesn’t go well, offensively, he hasn’t gone to what everyone was expecting, and at the same time, he will cheat a little bit and not drop back.

He cheats a little bit and doesn’t help with the midfield defensively.”
