Manchester United fans have reacted to Paul Pogba‘s potential omission from today’s matchday squad. The Red Devils will resume their Premier League campaign this evening, welcoming strugglers West Brom to Old Trafford.
The “yapping” the fan was referring to was in reference to comments Pogba recently made whilst on international duty with France.
“This is a period that I haven’t previously experienced in my career, as I’ve been used to playing all the time and getting into my rhythm, so that’s suddenly changed,” Pogba told RTL.
“I feel I’m gradually getting back into it now. I’m rediscovering my form. That’s the sort of performance that I need to produce and I need to do so consistently.”
He added: “[Playing with France] it’s like a window that opens up. It’s a breath of fresh air when you come here. We have a truly fantastic squad. When we come here, we’re all happy.”
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer discussed the comments with the Pogba upon his return to Manchester, saying: “I spoke to Paul today about it.
“Of course, he’s not happy when he’s not been playing and not playing really well. He’s not been happy with his [club performances].
“But Paul had a difficult season last season. Then he’s had COVID. But three games for France have helped him get his fitness and rhythm. I spoke to him and he feels stronger for it.
“He plays in the same position for France as he does for us, so that scenario isn’t an issue.”
