Gary Neville believes Paul Pogba may have played his last minutes for Manchester United after being substituted through injury in the ninth minute against Liverpool. The Frenchman retained his place in Ralf Rangnick’s starting XI for the trip to Anfield, despite being mocked at Old Trafford in the 3-2 win over Norwich on Saturday.
However, Pogba’s night didn’t last long when he appeared to pick up or aggravate an injury early in the game.
He was hobbling with six minutes on the clock, prompting Rangnick to turn to the bench in search of reinforcements.
Jesse Lingard entered the fray as Pogba limped off the pitch to the sound of cheers from the Kop.
Neville then asked if this could be Pogba’s last game in United colours, with his contract at the end of the season.

“This Man Utd team is a waste of space,” the Sky Sports pundit said in commentary.
“It’s as bad as it gets. I thought Man Utd looked promising towards the end of last season, but it’s been alarming to see them go to where they are today. What we’re looking at is nothing . It’s nothing.”
Speaking after the Norwich game, Rangnick didn’t seem overly agitated by the backlash Pogba received from the fans.
“I haven’t heard it myself to be honest, we were talking about it with my staff in the dressing room.
“I think the fans here are amazing, really. The support in the stadium today was great, it couldn’t have been better.
“I can understand if the fans are frustrated and disappointed, so are we. I don’t think it makes sense to go up against and target a particular person or player. It is a collective responsibility. To me, that makes no sense and that’s why I will always defend and protect my players.
“By the way, I think Paul in the first half in possession of the ball did well.”
