Paul Pogba Slammed by United Fans, Media for Mind-Boggling Mistakes



Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is a top trending term on Twitter right now and it’s for all the wrong reasons. The most expensive player in club history (and the world at the time he was re-acquired in 2016) often looked dazed and confused on the pitch tonight in the Red Devils draw at Southampton.

Getting only the single point from a trip to the St. Mary’s is basically a loss as United were taking on a side that’s currently sitting in the relegation zone. You win, lose or draw as a team, but Paul Pogba looked very disinterested in getting any kind of result today. You know how elite his talents and abilities are as an individual player, so one has to wonder just what was going through his head today as he turned in a performance that was beyond dreadful.

That’s the chief United writer for the hometown newspaper, the Manchester Evening News, tweeting that above and it’s nearly impossible to disagree with him. Pogba had unforced errors, and didn’t seem to try too hard to recover from the mind-numbing errors he made.

Right now on Twitter, you’re seeing media, fans, and everyone else in between joining in for the pile on. Too bad Paul Pogba has given them so much material to work with.

The draw that felt like a loss left United in seventh place, while the teams in 2nd-6th all have a chance to gain more ground on them this weekend. Despite gaining a point, Southampton remain in 18th, a point behind Huddersfield for the safety zone.
