Rio Ferdinand was not impressed with Paul Pogba’s assessment of Manchester United’s 4-2 defeat at Leicester – suggesting his comments could cause friction in the Old Trafford dressing room.
United collapsed late on at the King Power on Saturday, despite initially taking the lead when Mason Greenwood broke the deadlock with a stunning long-range strike in the 19th minute.
Goals from Youri Tielemans and Caglar Soyuncu swung the game in the Foxes’ favour, but with eight minutes remaining Marcus Rashford thought he had snatched a point for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men when he cooly converted past Kasper Schmeichel from close range.

That was before they were knocked out cold in a dramatic final 10 minutes, with Jamie Vardy going straight down the other end and restoring Leicester’s lead.
Patson Daka then put the icing on the cake for the hosts deep into stoppage time, compounding United’s misery and extending their winless Premier League run to three games.
