Paul Pogba has been told that the excuses he gave for failing at Manchester United is lame and makes no sense.
Martin Samuel wrote for Daily Mail: “Paul Pogba blames his poor showing at Manchester United on the constant turnaround of managers.
“‘When you change the coach every year, it’s quite difficult to adapt,’ he said. It’s just another lame excuse from a talent who rarely delivered.
“Pogba was six seasons at Old Trafford and he didn’t have six managers in that time: he had two. Jose Mourinho was the first until midway through Pogba’s third season, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was his manager for three years after that.
“It is pointless including Michael Carrick’s three games as caretaker because Pogba did not play in them, and by the time he participated in his first of 14 matches under interim Ralf Rangnick on February 4 – the FA Cup exit against Middlesbrough – he was deep into the process of running down his contract and a summer departure was expected.
“There was actually very little upheaval at United during Pogba’s time there. In effect, the upheaval was him.”
Pogba revealed four reasons why he struggled at Manchester United following his move to Juventus.
“When you play for a team and change coach every season it’s hard,” Pogba said.
“It’s true that I was injured sometimes. It was a bit of everything. Coach, team, change of roles, these things blocked me a little.
“Now, it’s another Paul, another Pogba and hopefully, I won’t have many injuries, I’ll feel well and play in my role, doing better than in the last seasons.”
