Former France International and ex- Arsenal star Bacary Sagna, has expressed his unhappiness at the criticisms that have been sent towards countryman, Paul Pogba.

Pogba has been underwhelming for Manchester United this season, despite starting off on a brilliant note.

The midfielder’s form is almost a reflection of United, who have won just three of their last ten games across all competitions.

Pogba, who is out of contract at the end of the season, will be free to speak to foreign clubs from January, and Sagna has predicted where the 28 year old will end up, while speaking against the way he’s been treated.

He told Metro UK via Freebets.com, “I love Paul and the way he plays. I don’t want to speak for him, but it seems like things have been a little difficult between him and the fans at times because they expect so much from him.

“They want him to be perfect because he’s so charismatic on the pitch and can create so much space they want him to do everything. A bit like now with Ronaldo.

“Pogba got a lot of stick for his recent sending off [during United’s 5-0 defeat to Liverpool], yes it was a bad tackle, but he’s trying to fight and get the ball back for the team.

“What do you want him to do, just stand and watch? People think he doesn’t care, that he’s smiling but knowing him he was disappointed.

“I don’t know if he belongs at Manchester United. I’d love to see him shining in the team – he loves Manchester.”
