Pogba should hang his head in shame
Paul Pogba had a turbulent start to the season, but he is witnessing a resurgence in form under caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solksjaer.
The Frenchman has scored seven goals in nine appearances since Solksjaer had taken over the helms at United – and his double against Fulham on Saturday took his goal tally in the league to 11 – the first time ever he reached a double in a single league campaign
Iain Dowie said Pogba should never had gotten himself in what the former West Ham United and Crystal Palace striker branded as “rubbish” under Ex-United manager Jose Mourinho.
Dowie told Skysports: “I’m a massive admirer of Pogba. I think he’s a world class player, but I do think he should hang his head in shame because you can’t just all of a sudden go obscure.
“Even if you fell out with the manager – by the way, one of the world’s best tactically manager. If you don’t perform for a man like that, who was trying to get the best out of you and brought you back to the club, that’s a disappointment. But that’s all forgotten now.
“He should not have had to do that rubbish with the manager.”
Pogba, last night, at Old Trafford got red-carded in United’s first leg Champions League tie against PSG.
Without the services of Neymar, Cavani, and Meunier, the French giant were too strong for the Red Devils, as goals from Presnel Kimpembe and Kylian Mbappe, both set up by former player Angel di Maria, condemned the English side to a 2-0 defeat.
The four-time Champions League winners will now be going to the second leg with thin hope of making it pass beyond the Round 16, as the club are uncertain over the fitness of Jese Lingard and Anthony Martial, who were both withdrawn in the game, due to injury.
