Revealed, the current situation with Paul Pogba at United


It has been revealed by France national team handler Didier Deschamps that Paul Pogba is unhappy at Man United with the latest developments and controversial issues he has had to deal with.

The World Cup winner is now suffering lack of playing time as he has had to sit on the bench in the last couple of games with just five starts in all competitions this season. The former Juventus midfielder had less than 10 minutes of playing time in the Red Devils win against Everton last weekend.

Didier Deschamps has no doubt that the French midfielder is unhappy at his club for many reasons. He cited COVID-19 and injuries as reasons why he has not been at his best.

“He is in a situation with his club where he cannot be happy, neither with his playing time nor with his positioning,” Deschamps said. “He is not in his best period. He has had a series of injuries and Covid-19, which has hit him quite hard. He needs to find his rhythm.

“With me, there is no such concern. When a player is in discomfort in his club, he is happy to play for France. He will tell me about his feelings and, as I know him very well, it will go in a positive direction”

However, Phil Neville has stated that it is disgraceful for Paul Pogba to be a bench player in Man United, knowing his worth and value in the transfer market.

He, therefore, added that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer cannot compete for any major title without the World winner as a major part of the team.

Meanwhile, Paul Pogba is still unhappy that the Red Devils triggered the 12 months extension of his contract as entailed in his contract with the club as he is keen to part ways.

He has not hidden his wish to join Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid after making such claims on several occasions in public. Manager Zinedine Zidane is also keen on the service of the World Cup winner. It won’t be a surprise if Paul Pogba joins the Los Blancos this coming summer.
