‘Good riddance!’ – Neil Warnock is happy Romelu Lukaku and Paul Pogba are leaving the Premier League and says Chelsea and Manchester United are better off without them

Neil Warnock has said “good riddance” to Romelu Lukaku and Paul Pogba, with the veteran manager happy the “selfish” pair have left the Premier League.

Lukaku has sealed a return to Inter Milan from Chelsea after his failed return to Stamford Bridge, while Pogba is also ready for Serie A on a free transfer to Juventus.

Belgium striker Lukaku only joined the Blues in a deal worth just under £100m last summer but has struggled to find his Premier League form and has now signed for his former club on a season-long loan.

After a poor start to his spell in west London, the Belgian admitted he was “not happy” at Chelsea and spoke of a return to Inter in January.

Meanwhile, Pogba has left Man United for the second time in his career and is now expected to join Juventus for nothing.

The France World Cup winner has opened up on his decision to leave Old Trafford in a self-proclaimed ‘Pogmentary’ which recently came under heavy criticism as he headed for the exit door.

Warnock says both players are only thinking of themselves, and managers Thomas Tuchel and Erik ten Hag and their respective Chelsea and Man United sides are “lucky” to be gone.

“Good riddance is what I say,” Warnock told talkSPORT Breakfast.

“Like Pogba at Man United. I think both are about ‘me, me, me’ and not about the team or the club.

“They’re the type to score a goal, kiss the badge and then they’re transferred next week.

“I don’t miss people like that. I didn’t think he did anything at Man United and I don’t think he did anything at Chelsea.

“Yes, Lukaku scored some good goals, but his teammates will be much better off without him.

“The manager is very lucky because he doesn’t have to worry about him. I think Tuchel will be very happy with that.
