Statistic shows why Pogba needs to work on discipline

Paul Pogba arrived back at Manchester United last summer with plenty of pressure on his shoulders.

At the age of just 23, the midfielder is the most expensive footballer in history having re-signed for the Red Devils from Juventus for £89m.

It took him time to settle, but the France international has shown why he warranted such a big transfer fee, albeit not consistently.

In last weekend’s 1-1 draw with arch rivals Liverpool, Pogba disappointed on the pitch – giving away a penalty in the first half and failing to convert a handful of goalscoring opportunities.

A statistic from WhoScored has shown that the midfielder has a particular aspect of his game that he needs to work on – discipline.

As the tweet shows, Pogba has been guilty of making more fouls than any other competitor in the Premier League this season.

Interestingly, though, the ex-Juventus star has only received six bookings this season and not a single red card.
