Manchester United’s squad is star-studded. The club have poured money aplenty into building an array of the world’s best.
However, for whatever reason, several superstars just aren’t performing anywhere close to their full capabilities. Perhaps the biggest disappointment under Jose Mourinho’s reign to date has been Paul Pogba.
Big things were expected of the Frenchman, who remains the Red Devils’ record signing. More often than not, he’s failed to deliver. That has led to critics, particularly on the domestic stage. The latest man to take a dig at the ex-Juventus man is Edgar Davids…
“I am not at all convinced by Pogba. He plays a lot in England, it’s true, but I expected a lot more from him.” Davids told Canale 5, per The Sun.
You know what, Davids is right. Flashes of brilliance aren’t enough, you need consistency to win titles. Pogba’s talent is insane. There is no denying that. Sometimes, though, he’s ridiculously disappointing in matches where you expect him to be his most dominant.
England is a tough league to succeed in. Pogba has the game to thrive. For whatever reason (be it a fall-out with the manager or otherwise), it just isn’t working out. I fear his mindset has already been shattered. His time in this country has been marred. I doubt whether he can turn things around.
For the first time, I’m starting to question whether the best decision for all involved is to sell him on, get what we can for him and look towards the future without him. It’ll certainly be intriguing to see how Mourinho plays it…
