Was Pogba’s talent inflated?

What Paul Pogba showed in the Man United shirt did not deserve a transfer fee of 89 million pounds, so “Red Devils” do not need to expect more in the French midfielder.

Man United fans have lost their patience with Pogba. They asked the club to sell the player, because he was becoming a trick.

The talent of the former Juventus star is said to be overblown. And “Red Devil” is like the victim of “super stork” Mino Raiola.

Pogba is in decline
“There is no denying Paul Pogba’s form. The midfielder is slipping and his form is at its lowest,” The Independent commented after Man United lost 0-1 to Arsenal on November 1.

On Old Trafford of Man United, Pogba has a decisive pass to create a chance (key pass), 0 assists and 0 goals. In addition, he became a “criminal” when he made a mistake with Hector Bellerin, causing the home team to receive a penalty.

The British media have criticized Pogba a lot lately. Former French international Frank Leboeuf thinks that Pogba does not deserve a name in the starting squad of Manchester United at the moment.

“What we see is Man United are not good enough to play in the Premier League.” , Goal quoted Leboeuf share.

“This is obviously the problem. Solskjaer has to rethink this position. Maybe the position is good.” Most for Pogba right now is the bench “.

Pogba had one of the worst games of the 2020/21 season. His performance was completely overshadowed by a strong, dynamic and enthusiastic colleague Thomas Partey on the Arsenal side.

It has been 4 years since joining Man United, Pogba is still fluttering, making everything in the “Theater of Dreams” shimmering. With the French star, he has never made friends with stability, so that he cannot step up to the ranks of “world class”.

Former assistant Rene Meulensteen of the legendary Sir Alex Ferguson once emphasized: “I will never use the word world class so easily because I know what it means to be a world-class player. About Paul Pogba, He doesn’t deserve to be called world class “.

That’s not an empty statement, because Pogba is said to be an inflated talent. Even after winning many titles, the French midfielder has never been seen too big for his contribution and influence.

At Real Madrid, Sergio Ramos is a world-class midfielder. Without him, the defense representative of the capital wobbled. At Liverpool, Virgil van Dijk is a world-class midfielder. Without the Dutch star, “The Kop” faltered.

And at the “Theater of Dreams”, Man United is still alive without Pogba. In the second leg of the 1/8 Champions League round, “Red Devils” created a magical night when they excellently beat home PSG with the score 3-1. That day, Man United’s £ 89 million blockbuster sat in the stands.

Pogba is talented, but his level is not comparable to Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo. The former Juventus star does not maintain the stability like the two best soccer superstars. This player’s bad lies there.
