Alexis Sanchez blamed for Paul Pogba's poor Manchester United form

This is not really a good time for Manchester United mildfielder, Paul Pogba as the star player is trailed with numerous controversies in regards to the decline in his recent form.
Paul Pogba's struggles at Manchester United are down to the arrival of Alexis Sanchez at the club, according to the former Red Devils captain Paul Ince.
French midfielder Pogba's form has come under the microscope in recent weeks as he struggled in the defeats at Tottenham and Newcastle.
Jose Mourinho dropped Pogba from his starting lineup for the 2-0 win over Huddersfield at Old Trafford earlier this month, and there have been calls for the United boss to change his system if he wants to get the best out of the midfielder.
And former United captain Paul Ince has now claimed that the signing of Alexis Sanchez is partly to blame for Pogba's woes.
Sanchez arrived at the club in January, instantly become their highest-paid player.
“Since Sanchez joined the club, Pogba’s confidence and mood seems to have gone in the opposite direction to earlier in the season,” wrote Ince in his column for bookies Paddy Power.

“He looks like a totally different player.
“It’s probably due to the fact, that pre-Sanchez, he was the main man. He was the kingpin and the one everyone was talking about.
"But the arrival of Sanchez has taken the shine off him. What I would say is, at United, you’re all main men. You should all perform like that, too.
“Looking at the Newcastle game, you could see from his body language that he’s fed up. Whatever it is, it’s a problem that needs addressing.”
Ince also claimed that Pogba now regrets rejoining the club last summer , as speculation over his role in the United side and his relationship with Mourinho intensifies.
