Gary Neville takes swipe at Paul Pogba’s ‘ridiculous’ blue derby-day hairstyle
Former Manchester United defender Neville has questioned the wisdom of the Frenchman.
Paul Pogba’s decision to sport a blue hairstyle for Manchester United’s trip to Manchester City was branded “ridiculous” by Gary Neville.
City manager Pep Guardiola claimed this week that the France midfielder was offered to City by his agent Mino Raiola in January.

Pogba responded to the comments on Friday by tweeting, “Say what?” soon after they were published and the following day turned up for the clash at the Etihad Stadium, where City were aiming to secure the Premier League title with victory, with an eye-catching haircut.
Neville, though, was less than impressed.

He said on Sky Sports: “I like him, I think he’s a good player, but he doesn’t help himself.
“If you are a wise individual, you don’t attract attention when things aren’t going your way. Pogba doesn’t work like that. He’s got a big job to do, he’s got to prove he’s serious about his football.
“Coming here with blue hair today, win it’s fine, lose and that’s going to get mentioned forevermore. It’s ridiculous.”
