The Paul Pogba and Man United relationship is winding down to a close in disappointing fashion.
Manchester United made harder work of it than they should have against Norwich City today – but that felt like a nice three points for Ralf Rangnick’s men.
The Reds should be putting Norwich City to the sword by four or five, but our awful defence reared its ugly head yet again, with Cristiano Ronaldo completely bailing us out.
Far too many players wearing United shirts just didn’t look interested in competing today, with Paul Pogba yet again sitting in that category.
The Frenchman nonchalantly meandered about the field looking like he didn’t have a care in the world, misplacing passes and not really looking to do any defensive work whatsoever.
There were audible boos after a long-range pass drifted out for a goal-kick – and even more when Pogba was subbed off.
After the game, there was another disappointing interaction between fan and player. Boos rung out, while Pogba decided to cup his ear in response.

It just all comes back to one thing; Pogba leaving this club this summer. Yes, it’s sad he’ll leave on a free transfer, but United just need to get him out of the building.
No doubt the Frenchman will go on to flourish elsewhere. He’s too good of a footballer to just disappear into the distance. But this homecoming hasn’t worked out anywhere near as well as we’d all have hoped.
Let’s get his wages off the books, that ego out of the dressing room and go our separate ways.
