EPL: Makelele blasts Pogba after Man Utd’s 4-1 over Bournemouth

Chelsea legend, Claude Makelele, has accused Paul Pogba of showing his opponents lack of respect with his goal celebrations.

Pogba, who bagged a brace in Manchester United’s 4-1 win over Bournemouth on Sunday, celebrated both goals with an elaborate dance routine.

But Makelele is not a fan of his countryman’s flamboyant showboating.

Speaking on Astro SuperSport’s Sunday Night Live show, the former Real Madrid midfielder suggested Pogba was disrespectful and revealed how he would have dealt with him in his playing days.

“One example is Thierry Henry. When he scored a goal before, everybody was like, ‘F*****g hell, many goals, he’s never happy’.

“One day I tell Thierry, ‘Why?’. He said, ‘It’s the way I celebrate my goal. I know people don’t like this, but I’m like this. I can’t change this.

“Pogba, he’s like this, he can’t change this. We accept this – it’s Pogba.

“For me, it means sometimes you don’t respect your opponent, you know?

“It’s frustrating. I’m fronting Pogba. I want to tell him, ‘Listen, do this in the dressing room, not now. It’s frustrating. You win 4-0, you’re dancing in front of me,” Makelele said.
