Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has rejected claims that he 'snubbed' manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after last Sunday's humiliating 5-0 defeat against Liverpool at Old Trafford.

Pogba was left on the bench by Solskjaer and was then sent off when he was thrown on a half-time, amid one of the darkest days in United's recent history.

There were reports that Pogba had fallen out with Solskjaer after the game, but he took to Twitter to deny those claims as he tweeted this message:

His message received a mixed response from United fans, who were not happy with Pogba's reckless contribution last weekend.

United then backed up Pogba's tweet with a message of their own supporting their French midfielder:

Meanwhile, former United midfielder Paul Scholes suggested Pogba should not play for the club again after his wild challenge on Liverpool's Naby Keita, as he suggested his refusal to commit to the club beyond his current contract suggests he will leave on a free transfer next summer.

"Paul Pogba coming on to the pitch at half-time to try and help the team and maybe get a little respectability about it, tries to stand on the ball, tries to show how strong he is in the middle of the pitch… gives the goal away," said Scholes.

"Then later on gets sent off with a ridiculous tackle. Now you're 5-0 down with 10 men. You'd have to think, if Ole's still a manager there, will we see Pogba again in a United shirt?

"He's caused mayhem over the last couple of years. Everyone knows what a talent he is, everybody trusts him, every manager trusts him, tried to give him his head and let him be the player he's been.

"With all the commotion, not signing his contract, almost holding the club to ransom, and then he comes on and does something like that.

"Look, he probably will play (again) won't he? But I don't think they will be missing anything if he doesn't.

"He's had numerous chances, he keeps saying he lacks consistency, but that is just [a lack of] discipline and disrespect for your manager and your team-mates, what he's done."
