Paul Pogba sends cryptic Twitter message with Man Utd losing at half-time vs Arsenal

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba missed today’s game at Arsenal due to the muscle injury he sustained at Liverpool earlier this week and prior to the fixture at the Emirates Stadium, Ralf Rangnick suggested that Pogba could have played in United red for the last time.

Clearly, those comments seem to have provoked Pogba into commenting on his injury but the 29-year-old chose the worst possible time to do so.

With his side losing 2-1 at Arsenal, Pogba addressed supporters and admitted that his season is not over and that he remains hopeful of featuring again, as seen below.

Absolutely gutted to not be able to help the team in today’s game,” he wrote on Twitter shortly after Craig Pawson signaled for half-time in London.

“I will work even harder to come back stronger and hopefully before the end of the season. It’s not over. Thank you all for your support, United we would stand!”

SN’s verdict…
It’s the last cryptic message in a string of unnecessary statements over his six years at the club but this one is unlikely to provoke a delirious reaction from media and fans.

The timing of the tweet was ill-advised and Rangnick will be extremely unhappy with that aspect of it but from a supporter’s viewpoint, Pogba’s exit is merely a matter of time, and any antics between now and the end of the season will be seen as Pogba’s parting gift. In a way, it would perfectly sum up his return to the club.
