As the world’s most expensive footballer, Paul Pogba is expected to hit the ground running at Manchester United.
The French midfielder will not be afforded a settling-in period by the wider public following his £89 million move from Juventus to Old Trafford.
This was abundantly clear by the reaction on social media to Pogba’s first touch on his return to United against Southampton on Friday evening. (Scroll down this page to see the video and the reaction Twitter).

Pogba was handed a start by Jose Mourinho, who claimed earlier this week that the 23-year-old isn’t yet ready to play 90 minutes.
But the Frenchman produced a sloppy first touch on his second debut, leading to a rather harsh reaction on Twitter.

And here’s how Twitter reacted…
Pogba delighted to be back at United
Pogba has made all the right noises since re-joining the Red Devils and seems genuinely happy to be back.
The all-action midfielder has also made it clear that he wants to win every available trophy with United this season; the Premier League, the FA Cup, the League Cup and the Europa League.
He also told Thierry Henry that winning the Ballon d’Or is one of his career ambitions.
