Manchester United Crisis: Why Sir Alex Ferguson Objected To Pogba’s Return

It has been revealed that former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson was against the return of French midfielder Paul Pogba to the club.

Ferguson was in charge when Pogba walked out on the club in the summer of 2012 and went on to join Italian giants Juventus for free.

The legendary Manchester United manager spoke about his position on a possible return for Paul Pogba in his book titled ‘leading’ which he released in 2015 and some months before the France World Cup winner rejoined the Red Devils in a club-record transfer.

The Scot also revealed that he is not a fan of Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola.

Manchester United paid a princely sum of £89m for his transfer from Juventus but the 25-year-old has cut a controversial figure at the club since his summer move in 2016.

Paul Pogba showed glimpses of his huge potential in the first season as Manchester United ended up with three trophies namely the Carabao Cup, Europa League and the Community Shield.

His form went downhill last season (second campaign) and was benched for some matches thus leading to a major feud between him and Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho.

The rivalry between the two parties has extended into the current season and this has threatened to derail an already rocky season for the Red Devils ahead of the weekend’s crucial league game at West Ham United.
