Manchester United and Paul Pogba failed to impress one and all against Tottenham Hotspur, a game that they lost 3-0 at their own home turf, Old Trafford.
Manchester United and France midfielder Paul Pogba was a helpless figure when Tottenham Hotspur easily trounced Manchester United in their recent Premier League fixture. After the goalless first half, Tottenham Hotspur scored thrice in the second half to emerge as deserving victors of the game. While star striker Harry Kane broke the stalemate, it was Brazilian Lucas Moura who added salt to Manchester United’s injury.
In the wake of the defeat, former Everton coach Sam Allardyce has criticized Paul Pogba for his inconsistent performances. The former England coach said, “United fans have been waiting for a consistent level of performances from Paul Pogba for so long now. Is it ever going to materialise at 25 now? He is at his peak. You have to hold your hands up and say you have not quite got what you expected on a consistent basis.”
Pogba was a part of the French squad that conquered the World in Russia, 2018. He along with Ngolo Kante orchestrated and commanded the play for Didier Deschamp’s side and helped win the trophy in Russia. However, the former West Ham didn’t think so. He said, “When he plays well, he plays exceptionally well. His goals against Manchester City last season and his performance when he got moved just behind the front man was terrific, but we just haven’t seen enough. Everybody said he had a brilliant World Cup for France and I never saw that either. I must have to go to the optician.”
“When you are the leading man, you have to be leading every week. Your performances cannot dip on a week in, week out basis” ,added Sam Allardyce.
While Paul Pogba’s inconsistent performance is not the sole reason for Manchester United’s dip in form, it is certainly one of many. The French midfielder who is at his peak needs to deliver commanding and dictating performance for Manchester United. As Allardyce said, Pogba does exceptionally well when he plays well. If he manages to deliver those on a regular basis, there is no denying that this player would achieve greatness.
