The LA Galaxy striker says United is focused on the past and lack the identity in the post-Sir, Alex Ferguson era. The 37-year-old believes that dynamic has not helped, with the Class of '92, as Ibra calls them the 'Circle of Ferguson, continually attack the club once it produces poor results.
"Everything that happens is judged by the era of Ferguson. They are saying if Ferguson was here, this would not happen, Ferguson would not do it like that," he told the Mirror.
"Ferguson would do it like this. Everything was Ferguson. Ferguson has his place in history at this club but now the club continues. It has to find its own identity and it is difficult. They are not there anymore. They are on TV and complaining all the time because they are not active in the club. ‘If you want to work in the club, go and search for work in the club," he continued.
"So you cannot be on TV and always complaining and criticizing. Yeah, ok, you’ve had your time, we know it. With Pogba, he was with United when he was young, then he went out and he came back. And in the circle of Ferguson, they don’t like that. Because they stayed all their life under Ferguson and they never moved from Ferguson. And they didn’t even talk if Ferguson didn’t tell them to open their mouth.‘So now if they are talking, I don’t know whether Ferguson gave them permission or not."
The duo was prominent pundits during Mourinho’s ill-fated spell as Manchester United manager and regularly offered scathing criticism of those at the club.
