Pogba used to be dragged off after an hour of Manchester United’s 1-Zero loss to Newcastle on Sunday.
The Frenchman performed in a deeper midfield function along Nemanja Matic and struggled to have an have an effect on at the sport.
But Burley has no sympathy for Pogba and says he can not use the placement he performs as an excuse for his deficient shape.
The former Chelsea midfielder claims Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne would do a a ways higher process than Pogba if he used to be requested to do the similar function in the United midfield.
“This guy, who’s clearly a talent, he looks to be swanning around as if he’s doing the Premier League a favour and Man United a favour by being there,” Burley mentioned on ESPN FC.
“That’s the way it’s taking a look to me, he’s swanning round as though ‘hey, I’m Paul Pogba, and I’m again in the Premier League and also you will have to feel free’.
“I’m no longer having that, as a result of he’s enjoying somewhat deeper or on account of the formation, he can not impact a sport.
“If I used to be to place Kevin De Bruyne in the Manchester United workforce in the similar place, he would have 50 in keeping with cent a minimum of extra impact at the sport.
“He didn’t must play a defensive function towards Newcastle, they’d 60 or 70 in keeping with cent ownership, so he may just push on. The man is no longer doing sufficient.”
Burley believes Pogba is considered one of plenty of United gamers who’re excused for deficient shape by way of being performed out of place by way of supervisor Jose Mourinho.
The Scot says it is about time they’d a have a look at their very own shape fairly than blaming any person else.
“I think the issue here is ‘can Paul Pogba do more, a lot more?’, the answer is yes,” Burley added.
“He and slightly a couple of others have were given to forestall hiding at the back of this ‘well, Mourinho is playing him out of position’.
“He’s in the centre of midfield for God’s sake towards probably the most worst groups in the Premier League. You’re telling me he can’t get ahead and impact a sport?
“He’s no longer a patch in this day and age on Kevin De Bruyne, no longer a patch! I wouldn’t even bat an eyelid if I used to be introduced one towards the opposite.
“That’s how reasonable he has change into in a United blouse and it’s no longer all Mourinho’s fault.”
