Paul Pogba: They expect more from you because of the price-tag

Paul Pogba: They expect more from you because of the price-tag

Manchester United star Paul Pogba has opened up, for the first time, on his move to Old Trafford and how his then world record fee impacted him.

The Frenchman can seemingly never shake off his critics despite winning multiple titles with Juventus, the World Cup with France and the Europa League and Carabao Cup with United.

Jose Mourinho’s ill fated third season in charge and the change in management still saw Pogba put in impressive numbers- in fact, it was his most productive season yet as he scored 16 goals and assisted 11 times across all competitions.

However, some fans are still unfazed and wouldn’t complain too much if the midfielder was moved on so long as the Red Devils spend to replace him.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer clearly rates Paul but it appears there’s nothing he could do right after moving to Old Trafford for £94.5m.

Pogba is Manchester United’s top goalscorer and top assister for the season and it’s time he’s respected for the quality player he is.

The fact is, Solskjaer’s side would be worse off without him and chasing him out of Old Trafford isn’t the solution to the club’s problems.

Having said that, it’s clear Paul needs to find more consistency to his game and prove his leadership potential.
