Manchester United Football Club have had their problems both on and off the field to start this season.
Personally, I believe it all stems from the poor transfer window, which would have had a knock-on effect on the dressing room as a whole.
Tensions between Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba have been rather high since the Frenchman was stripped of his captaincy role. In between the lines, United’s #6 has been his usual, inconsistent self.
Perhaps that has led to the latest comments from Paul Ince, who firmly believes that Pogba should leave Old Trafford as it would suit both parties…
“I can’t say I’m surprised to hear about the Paul Pogba rumours, suggesting he’s interested in leaving Old Trafford in January. He said recently that he was happy at Man United, but I didn’t believe any of that.” Ince told PaddyPower, per the Manchester Evening News.
“I believe a Pogba move away from United would suit both parties. If we’re being honest, he’s never settled on his return to the club.”
“He’s been inconsistent in his performances, going from world class to looking bang average, and there’s always been whispers and transfer talk surrounding him in that time.”
I understand it (I think). However, Pogba is still our best player. When he performs, United usually win. The question has always been about whether he’ll turn up or not.
Personally, I’d love to keep him around. The question is, just how long will Pogba and Mourinho tolerate each other? There comes a point when it just gets too much and one of the two have to take themselves away from the situation.
I think most will be hoping that Mourinho is the one who is kicked out, and don’t be surprised, because Pogba is arguably the most marketable players in football.
