French midfielder Paul Pogba cannot deny the fact that he is currently in a difficult period at Manchester United. This is related to the playing minutes given by coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at MU.
In fact, Pogba has repeatedly encountered problems in his career at club level in recent seasons. The 27-year-old midfielder is often in the spotlight because he is considered unable to show his best performance during the Red shirt.
At the start of this season, the problem had not yet been resolved, instead the player was often put on the bench by coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. When the opportunity to play came, he actually received criticism because he was considered the culprit of his team’s defeat.
A contrasting story actually appears when the player defends the French National Team. He managed to score Les Bleus’ winning goal over Portugal last weekend.
Speaking after the match, the former Juventus player cannot deny the fact that he is in a very different condition between the National team and at Manchester United.
“This is a period I have never experienced in my career. The French national team is a breath of fresh air, we are very happy to have come here.”
“It’s not the same as when at the club. We all come together, it’s magic, “said Pogba.
In a separate interview, France national team coach Didier Deschamps said that Pogba is currently mentally exhausted because of what happened to him at Manchester United.
“It’s hard to remember to be positive. Obviously, he’s not in one of his better periods, ”
“Like all the players who have a club situation which is not positive, they are also affected mentally. I know him quite well and sometimes it can happen, “said Deschamps.
Actually, Pogba is not a decisive player like Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo. He is only a midfielder who can help organize attack and defense.
It’s just that, the complaint from Manchester United fans is that their performance tends to be arbitrary. In fact, on the one hand the club spent 105 million Euros to repatriate him to Old Trafford in 2016.
