Watching the video, club legend Rio Ferdinand did not seem amused as he expressed his disappointment speaking to BT Sport.

Ferdinand was quoted: "I've just seen a video of the lads dancing in the changing room. I'm all for having a bit of fun on social media and stuff.

"But not when you're fifth in the league, and you're not in the Champions League positions and you're fighting.

"You haven't won anything yet. Until you've won something you can't go out and do stuff like that.

"I'm all for having fun and I think part of Pogba's appeal especially is that he is a happy free spirit and I wouldn't want to take that away from him. But I think there's a time and getting the balance right.

"If that comes out when you've won a cup final I'd be the first on to be pushing it out all over the place.

"The way I see it we're fifth in the league, we're fighting for a Champions League position we haven't got any silverware yet.

"I'd want to keep myself out of the radar a little bit until I get to that point."

The former English defender was understandably not happy with the players especially during a time when the club is not in a very good position in the league table.

Here is the video of Paul Pogba:
