Poor old Paul Pogba can’t seem to catch a break, although, to be fair, his contribution for Manchester United this season has been minimal since his world-record move to Old Trafford from Juventus in the summer.
The £89m-man was on-form in midweek as he hit a brace against Fenerbahce in the Europa League, which he celebrated with his trademark ‘dab’, to the surprise of
everybody nobody, but he was back to perfecting his vanishing act at Stamford Bridge on Sunday in an awful defeat for the Red Devils.
What made it worse was Pogba’s tweet to rile-up the travelling fans before Jose Mourinho’s huge return to face former employers Chelsea, which went viral after United ended up losing the game 4-0.

The tweet certainly backfired, with Chelsea taking the lead just 33 seconds into the match and inflicting a crushing defeat upon United, and with Pogba again failing to impress, it attracted a lot of attention on social media with rival fans determined to kick the Frenchman while he was down.
It’s now been a month since Manchester United last won in the Premier League, although to be fair there was an international break during that period, but rival fans didn’t care as they twisted the knife into the world’s most expensive footballer once again.
