Paul Ince has called on Paul Pogba to leave Manchester United after the midfielder was benched for the third match in a row.
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer named Pogba among the substitutes for the 0-0 draw with Chelsea, with Scott McTominay and Fred preferred in central midfield.
Pogba was also on the bench for the 4-1 win at Newcastle last weekend and the 2-1 win at Paris Saint-Germain in midweek.
And Ince would have no qualms if Pogba chose to quit the Red Devils after Solskjaer’s latest team selection.
“Paul Pogba should be on the pitch, this is a big, big game,” Ince told beIN Sports .
“For him to be sitting on the bench and watching, with no disrespect, McTominay and Fred playing in his position, I would be saying, ‘I must be doing something wrong if I can’t get in this team’.
“I know he has had an injury and he might be trying to bring him on a little later on, but I think it is time to move on. He has come out in the last two weeks and said he wants to join Real Madrid.

“I think his performances since he has been here have been inconsistent. Paul Pogba is a world-class player and when he moved to Old Trafford I thought, ‘great’.
“But all he has done is been a problem. The fans have gone against him and now Bruno Fernandes has come in and shown what you need to do to be a Man United player.
“He has performed consistently and Paul Pogba hasn’t done that and that is why he finds himself on the bench.”
