Paul Pogba’s relationship with Manchester United supporters is at an all-time low.
The French midfielder, who was linked with a move to Barcelona in the summer, fuelled rumours of his potential departure when he spoke to Sky Sports Germany this week.
Pogba was asked why a move to the Camp Nou didn’t go through. Instead of committing his future to Man United, he managed to upset the club’s supporters.
“There was a lot of talk, but it was just like that, I'm under contract in Manchester," Pogba said.
"My future is currently in Manchester, I still have a contract, I'm playing there at the moment.
"But who knows what’s going to happen in the next few months."
Oh, Paul. Was that really necessary?
Neville 'likes' tweet calling out Pogba
Man United supporters have expressed their disapproval on social media and among them is British boxer Anthony Crolla.
The former WBA Lightweight champion has hit out at Pogba, accusing the 25-year-old of “disrespecting the club!”
It’s interesting to note that Crolla’s tweet has been ‘liked’ by Man United legend Gary Neville.
“Now he gives an interview how he’s under contract for Manchester United but who knows what will happen in a few month,” Crolla said.
“We’re all d***heads at time but for me that’s too much d***head behaviour so if he wants to go let him go!!
“Disrespecting the club!”
Neville 'likes' the tweet
Man United fans spotted Neville 'liked' the tweet on reddit.
Of course, Neville’s Twitter activity isn't definitive proof that he agrees with Crolla.
But it’s still interesting that he couldn’t just scroll past the boxer’s message. Maybe he does agree with the boxer.
There now appears to be a genuine chance that Pogba will leave Man United before the expiration of his contract, which runs until 2021.
Spanish newspaper Sport claim that Barcelona are interested in Pogba, Adrien Rabiot and Frenkie de Jong, and want to sign two of them in 2019.News Now - Sport News
