That’s according to former Red Devils defender Derek Brazil who believes Jose Mourinho has an ally in the former United boss.
Pogba’s performances have been poor this season with some fans even booing him when he was brought on in the 2-2 draw with Arsenal on Wednesday evening.
The World Cup winner has struggled following his mega money move from Juventus.
And Brazil reckons Fergie could have a big say in the future of Pogba in the January transfer window.
He told Love Sport: “If they’re going to get rid of Jose at the end of the season, are they really going to let him spend £150million in January?
“But I think against Arsenal the players went out and put a shift in.
“However – and I will stick up for Pogba or Lukaku and I have done in the past – even in the last 15 minutes when Pogba came on and I was saying ‘go on, prove your worth now’ and he just looked disinterested.
“He’s one of those players that Jose would like to get shot of in January if he could. The word is he’s a bit of a bad egg at the moment.
“Mourinho has got a lot of pull at Manchester United. People forget that Alex Ferguson has got a big say at the club still and I think he’s a big ally of Mourinho.”
He added: “United are playing like a mid-table team but I don’t think the players and the squad are a mid-table team. I love Jose. Everyone’s against him but I like his passion on the touchline.
“But I don’t know where he goes from here.
“Everyone is against him and eventually I fear his players will turn against him. I don’t think they have, looking at the Arsenal performance.
“But it will be interesting to see what he does in January with the Pogba situation and if the club will allow him to do anything.”
Pogba has netted five times and provided four assists in 19 appearances across all competitions this season.
United currently sit eighth in the Premier League, a massive 18 points behind Manchester City at the top of the table.
Next up for Mourinho’s side is a home clash with Fulham on Saturday (3pm).
