Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is never far away from the headlines, but his latest comments whilst away on international duty could well be the final straw for most United fans.
Pogba, 27, rejoined United in 2016 from Juventus after departing the Reds’ youth academy four-years prior as the Frenchman’s ‘homecoming’ cost the club a whopping £94.5m, as per Transfermarkt.
Since his arrival back at Old Trafford, Pogba has been directly involved in 68 goals in 175 matches in all competitions, but now operating in a much deep role, you would expect those numbers to widen even further.
Given the 27-yer-old’s huge price-tag and relentlessly inconsistent performances, the French World Cup winner has always come under intense criticism with his long-term future continually speculated.
Currently on international duty, the United midfielder has shocked fans once again after speaking to French media and slamming his United team-mates.
Paul Pogba to RTL: “This is a period I’ve never experienced in my career. The French national team is a breath of fresh air… we are very happy to come here. It’s not the same as with the club. We all group together, it is magical”. [@GFFN] ??? #MUFC #France #Pogba

All he adds is a headache to the team selection which is not warranted by his form or ability compared to what we have at the moment, same story every transfer window should be gone next summer

The breath of fresh air didn’t improve his performances much

Pogba never takes responsibilty for Pogbas form or actions, When was the last time he scored 10 in a season

Absolutely everybody is done with him

All that’s wrong with the club. He’s a disease. Ole needs to ask himself the age old question…what would Fergie do?
Answer is simple: if he was prepared to see the back of Becks, Jaap, Ruud and Keano…then who the hell are you Pogba??
