The ‘secret’ United fans may not know about Paul Pogba


Man United midfielder Paul Pogba is no doubt one of the most controversial players at the Old Trafford since his switch from Seria A giants, Juventus.

Controversies around him were mostly recorded when former manager Jose Mourinho was in charge at the Old Trafford as he had a faceoff with the Portuguese manager, a development that attracted negative stories from the media.

We will not forget the outburst on the field, the banter on the media, and the dressing room crisis.

Peace was only restored with reduced controversy when Jose Mourinho was sacked and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was made to take over.

Oliver Norwood has come out to reveal some hidden truths about the France international when he said “Pogba is misunderstood”

Norwood boasts of knowing Pogba as they both came through the United youth system alongside Jesse Lingard who is also a first-team player.

According to him, Pogba is a nice guy who is not as controversial as people put him out to be.

He said,  “I think so, yeah. He’s actually a really nice down-to-earth lad, he was when I knew him.

“When we were in the youth team he was always singing and dancing then, so it’s nothing to do with the hype [surrounding] him now.” He told Sky Sports.

What has now changed about Paul Pogba is what is unknown to everyone because many years have passed since his days in the youth ranks at Man United and his years at Juventus.

Although, his performance for Man United has been satisfactory with the strength of the midfield built around him. That has given Pogba the stability he has recently enjoyed.

Having won the league at Seria A and the World Cup with France, winning the EPL and the Champions League with the Red Devils will, of course, settle the scores for the French player.
