Makelele slams pogda's dance celebrations branding it disrespectful

Former Chelsea and France midfielder and legend Claude Makelele slams Man Utd midfielder pogba  for his dance celebrations deeming it as disrespectful.

Former Chelsea and France midfielder and legend Claude Makelele slams Man Utd midfielder pogba  for his dance celebrations deeming it as disrespectful.

 The former Chelsea midfielder wasn't impressed with Paul antics after scoring on Sunday.

 He said Paul Pogba’s goal celebrations are disrespectful to his opponents.

 Pogba has made a sensational return to form for Manchester United following the arrival of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as interim manager.

 The 25-year-old scored twice against Huddersfield on Boxing Day before again notching twice in the Red Devils’ 4-1 win against Bournemouth at Old Trafford on Sunday – more goals than he had managed in his previous 17 appearances under Solskjaer’s predecessor Jose Mourinho. 

  The former Juventus man even found himself on the bench for Mourinho’s final three Premier League games in charge before being immediately recalled by Solskjaer against Cardiff just before Christmas.

 After both goals against the Cherries Pogba celebrated with some of his elaborate dance moves, with the France international admitting after the game that the players are “enjoying themselves” under Solskjaer.

 His countryman Makelele, however, is not impressed with Pogba’s antics and feels he is being disrespectful.

 The former Real Madrid and Chelsea midfielder revealed he would have spoken to Pogba had he been his team-mate.

 “One example is Thierry Henry,” Makelele said.  “When he scored a goal before, so many goals, he's never happy. “One day I ask Thierry, 'Why?' He said, 'It's the way I celebrate my goal.

 I know people don't like this, but I'm like this. I can't change this. "For me, it means sometimes you don't respect your opponent, you know? "It's frustrating.

 I'm fronting Pogba. If I was a player I would want to tell him, ‘Listen, do this in the dressing room, not now. It's frustrating. You win 4-0, you're dancing in front of me.’" 

 Makelele admitted he would often react angrily when a player did something similar during his career, including former Barcelona forward Ronaldinho. 

 "I have a lot of history, not just Ronaldinho,” added the 45-year-old. "It's football - sometimes you need to explain to the player in front of you, give a little bit of respect, also."
