Pogba came on as a half-time substitute to endure a 15-minute nightmare, as his error led to Liverpool’s fifth goal as they showed a straight red card to Nebi Keita’s terrifying challenge.
The acquisition was handed over to midfielder Jordan Henderson, who played the ball through Mohammed Salah to complete his hat-trick. Later, Keita’s challenge saw the Guinea international leave the pitch on a stretcher.
The World Cup winner apologized to his teammates following the reckless challenge, but did not communicate with Soulsjer.
It is reported that Pogba is considering the possibility of signing a new deal with United, but those talks have now been put on hold.
The Frenchman’s current contract at Old Trafford expires in June 2022, meaning he will be able to talk to other clubs in January and leave as a free agent next summer.
The Sun reports that the 28-year-old’s outspoken comments after United’s 4-2 defeat at Leicester City did not fit Soulsjer.
“We’ve had games like this for a long time,” he said.
“We don’t find the problem, give up easy goals – we need to be more mature, more experienced and play better with arrogance.
“We have to find something; we need to change.”
Pogba has been out of favor in recent weeks, and has been ruled out of a dramatic 3-2 Champions League victory over Atlanta before Sunday’s game against Liverpool.
He has yet to find the net in 12 appearances in all competitions this season, but has recorded seven assists in his first four Premier League games. It featured four in one match, as United beat Leeds United 5-1 on the opening day of the season.
But after experiencing a revival in their form, Pogba now appears to have abandoned the pecking order at Old Trafford during this trouble.
