Manchester United fans have once again pointed the finger at Paul Pogba after he put in a poor performance against Barcelona on Tuesday night.
The World Cup winner was wholly ineffective at Camp Nou and his performance hasn’t helped shake his reputation of going missing in big games.
United were well beaten by Barca on Tuesday with Lionel Messi putting on a majestic performance as the Red Devils were brushed aside 3-0.
The 6 foot 3 midfielder has often been the scapegoat for United after his club record move from Juventus in 2016 and fans have once again highlighted him as the player who didn’t perform up to standard.
The Frenchman has enjoyed a good season on the whole netting 15 goals in all competitions for his club whilst also providing 10 assists.
Numbers like these haven’t saved Pogba from a barrage of criticism from fans who believe he needs to step up when the stakes are high.
Here’s what United fans have been saying on Twitter…
I thought Pogba was just lazy and selective about when he performs, but if he can’t step up for Barca at the Nou Camp in the quarter final of the Champions League, then it just confirms that he is in fact just plain awful.

Glad the amount of United fans saying Pogba should be sold is growing. Missing again last night.

Way far from good. What did they create after that? No fight and after 15 mins reverted to type……slow, lazy and in footballing terms naive. None of our back 4 would get into the top 5 or 6 PL teams. Fred is poor and Pogba slows everything down. Most big games he goes missing.

Pogba should be the first out the door. Stealing a living and goes missing when he’s needed most!!
