Loads of Man Utd fans lament midfielder after error leads to AC Milan goal

The importance of Paul Pogba’s presence in Manchester United’s midfield has been underlined in the first-half against AC Milan in Cardiff.

The Frenchman is missing from this evening’s friendly with a back spasm and the combination of Scott McTominay and Nemanja Matic have struggled in midfield.

There seems a lack of energy with the pair holding in midfield, particularly Matic who has had a poor half in truth.

Matic’s mistake was responsible for AC Milan’s equalising goal; he was dispossessed on the ball before Spanish playmaker Suso curled home on the edge of the box.

Many United fans have lamented Matic’s performance so far, and there is a concern whether he is ready to start next Sunday’s Premier League opener against former club Chelsea.
