Paul Pogba’s return to Manchester United in 2016 caused much excitement among fans.
We are now into his fifth season back at Old Trafford, after initially leaving as a youngster for Juventus in 2012, with Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola announcing that it would be best if his client left the club.
Nobody needed Raiola to point out that Pogba’s transfer to United hasn’t worked out, and the club should’ve looked at ways to bin him during the summer.
Former Premier League defender, Richard Dunne, who played for rivals Man City, does not think Pogba will attract much interest.
Dunne shares the view that United will not have many clubs knocking at their door for Pogba, who he reckons would only be signed as a commercial tool rather than footballing ability.
That makes you wonder how different a fans’ perspective on Pogba’s time at United would be to members of the Glazer family…
“He is a good player but he’s never been someone who grabs a game by the horns and steers his team the right way,” Dunne wrote in his Sunday World column.
“And I can’t see there being a huge clamour from other clubs for Paul Pogba, the footballer.
“Someone will sign him because of the commercial value he adds but not what he does on the pitch.”
It makes sad reading for Pogba. The World Cup-winner’s reputation has definitely been tarnished, but he only has himself and Raiola to blame.
His attitude from day one was disappointing and I think everyone expected better.
