Man United fans split over Pogba contribution

It was never going to be easy for Paul Pogba at Manchester United this season. As the most expensive footballer to walk the planet, the midfielder’s performances have been under the microscope since he re-joined the club from Juventus in the summer of 2016.

The France international has scored seven times for the Red Devils during the 2016-17 campaign, whilst there have been signs that the 24-year-old is ready to develop into the finest midfielder in world football, which he promised at Juventus last season.

A hamstring problem has seen Pogba miss some football in recent weeks, but he has recently returned to the fold, and played all 90 minutes of Man United’s 1-1 draw away to Anderlecht in the first leg of their Europa League quarter-final on Thursday night.

There were some impressive moments for the midfielder in Brussels, but his inability to fully exert himself, and indeed some missed opportunities, saw Anderlecht come from behind to leave the last-eight tie alive ahead of the second leg at Old Trafford next week.

Pogba has divided opinion with the Man United supporters all season, and that was no different on Thursday night after having a mixed game against the Belgian giants.

Interestingly, some rated Pogba’s performance as one of his best in a Man United shirt, but others were left underwhelmed as the Red Devils drew yet another important fixture.
