Manchester United fans were left unhappy with what they saw despite a late win against Norwich City.
A Cristiano Ronaldo hattrick secured all three points for The Red Devils despite Norwich levelling the game from 2-0 down, but United fans were left furious with one of their players. Chants of “you’re not fit to wear the shirt” were aimed at Paul Pogba, while the Frenchman was also booed by the Old Trafford faithful.
Football reporter Simon Stone, who was inside the stadium, took to Twitter and said: “Pogba crossfield pass out for a goal-kick. Few boos.” After the midfielder was substituted, he added: “Pogba replaced to some cheers but more boos.”
It comes just days after reports emerged suggesting United had tabled an offer which would have seen Pogba become the club’s highest-earning player. United are said to have offered him a £500,000 per-week deal which has upset a number of players in the squad.
The source said: “Some of the players think it’s out of order he could be getting twice as much as they’re when he hardly starts a game and talks about leaving all the time.” Pogba’s deal is set to expire in the summer with PSG reportedly interested in securing his signature.
Replying to posts about fans booing the World Cup winner, one person said: “Get him out!” While another said: “He shouldn’t play another minute!”
Where do you think Paul Pogba will end up this summer? Let us know in the comments section.
“It’s totally due to the complete lack of respect him and his agent have shown the club,” one person wrote. One United fan simply responded and said: “Our fans deserve McTominay and Fred.”
Pogba hasn’t been able to keep a consistent place in the United starting line-up under interim boss Ralf Rangnick. The 29-year-old has scored just one goal in all competitions this season.
