Former Manchester United defender, Rio Ferdinand, has criticized the club’s record buy, Paul Pogba, for posting a video of himself dancing on social media.
Pogba upload a short clip on Instagram, in which he could be seen with team-mate Jesse Lingard, dancing to Wizkid’s collaboration with Drake titled Come Closer.
Ferdinand says they have no business doing all that, when they are sixth in the Premier League and not playing in the Champions League.
He told BT Sport: “I’ve just seen a video of the lads dancing in the changing room. I’m all for having a bit of fun on social media and stuff. But not when you’re fifth [sic: sixth] in the league and you’re not in the Champions League positions and you’re fighting.
“You haven’t won anything yet. Until you’ve won something, you can’t go out and do stuff like that.
“I’m all for having fun and I think part of Pogba’s appeal especially is that he is a happy, free spirit and I wouldn’t want to take that away from him. But I think there’s a time and getting the balance right.
“If that comes out when you’ve won a cup final, I’d be the first on to be pushing it out all over the place.
“The way I see it, we’re fifth [sic] in the league, we’re fighting for a Champions League position, we haven’t got any silverware yet. I’d want to keep myself out of the radar a little bit until I get to that point.”
