Pogba gives three Manchester City players a big compliment, City fans react

The rivalry between Manchester City and Manchester United has always been present, but it has intensified in recent seasons due to the dominance of the blue half.

Pep Guardiola guided City to the Premier League title in the 2017-18 campaign, leaving United 19 points adrift in second place.

Jose Mourinho failed to win a trophy with the Red Devils this season, and he came under the microscope numerous times regarding his treatment of the players.

Publicly, the Portuguese coach criticised the likes of Luke Shaw and Anthony Martial, while questions were raised over Paul Pogba’s form.

The midfielder, who re-signed for United from Juventus in the summer of 2016, has struggled to live up to his £89m price tag.

The France international has had moments of brilliance on the pitch, but the consistency has not been there.

It is rare for those associated with United and City to compliment one another, but according to Get French Football News, Pogba told TV station Canal + that a number of his rivals are better midfielders than himself.

City stars Kevin De Bruyne, David Silva and Yaya Toure made the list, which has sparked an interesting reaction from fans.
