Paul Pogba hits comically bad shot in Manchester United v Everton

Football News

Paul Pogba has had his fair share of critics since he re-joined Manchester United.

The French midfielder has still not justified the £89.3 million United paid for his services in 2016.

Pogba is known for being one of the most inconsistent players in the sport at the moment.

And many, including Ian Wright, want to see more from the midfielder.

"He's a great player, and he's a World Cup winner," he said of Pogba earlier this month.  "He has come back and has proven that he is that guy.

"But if Paul Pogba left in January, and we looked back at his Premier League CV, would you say he has been brilliant here? He still has a lot to prove!

"I think he's fantastic, that picture of him dabbing with the World Cup is brilliant, it's going to be iconic, but at the same time, in the Premier League he hasn't done it properly, consistently enough yet.

"Coming back with a World Cup medal has given him a false sense of security, in thinking that: 'I'm bigger than this now.' We need to see more from him and what he's capable of doing."

Pogba has not been on the best run of form at the moment but he was still given his chance to impress against Everton on Sunday afternoon.

He would have been hoping for a fast start as he looks to prove that he is in fact a world-class player.

However, just two minutes into the game, Pogba was involved in a comically bad moment.

Finding himself on the left wing, Anthony Martial did well to find a pass to Pogba.

Pogba found himself in a good position roughly 30 yards away from the Everton goal, but with time and space, the Frenchman skewed an effort well wide.

In fact, it ended up going out for a throw-in.

Oh dear. Understandably, the moment is going viral with football fans across the world laughing at Pogba.

Things did get better for the 25-year-old, though, as he managed to break the deadlock for his side later on in the first half.
