TalkSPORT host and former Arsenal midfielder Ray Parlour has had his say on the Paul Pogba penalty incident which occurred on Monday night as Manchester United travelled to Molineux to face Wolves.
The game was level with 10 minutes to go when the Frenchman was fouled inside the area by Connor Coady. The World Cup winner took the resulting spot-kick, but it was saved by Rui Patricio.
This sparked huge debate throughout the football world as the week prior Marcus Rashford scored a penalty against Chelsea, but this week Pogba was the man handed the responsibility.
“You should know who the penalty taker is before the game starts.”
“If that player is on the pitch, he should take the penalty.”⚽️

Parlour expressed his belief that there should be one designated penalty taker who steps up whenever he is on the pitch.
Whether or not Parlour is right on this occasion is up for debate, but the Manchester United manager has been adamant that their process of choosing who takes penalties won’t change just because of one miss.
