Paul Pogba divides opinion of Man United fans in recent Twitter poll

Paul Pogba has been at the forefront of Manchester United fan's minds every since the beginning of the season.

Whether it be for a moment of brilliance which momentarily justifies the hefty price tag United paid in 2016 or a lacklustre, lazy performance that puts a seed of doubt in supporter's minds.

The 25-year-old Frenchman has seemingly fallen out with manager Jose Mourinho with the Portuguese questoning Pogba's mentality.

The former Juventus man was not included in United's starting line-up for their 4-1 win over Fulham on Saturday and more alarmingly was below Scott McTominay in the pecking order as the Scotsman came on in the centre of midfield.

Manchester Evening News' Twitter, @ManUtdMEN, took this opportunity to produce a poll giving fans the opportunity to voice their opinion on whether Pogba should start in the current United side.

The results showed a clear divide between fans and a obvious seperation between the World Cup winner's obvious talent and the quality he is actually displaying on the pitch at the moment.

Despite 2,323 votes being a rather small sample in the grand scheme of things, we would have to assume that the majority of voters are Mancunian, giving a rather accurate representation.

53% of voters believe that Pogba is simply not good enough to play for Man United at this moment in time.

A major part of this large percentage is probably down to the collateral damage that could be caused if the Frenchman were to stay at the club.


Fans were very vocal in the comment section as well, giving their reason as to why they believe United and Pogba are not a good combination. 

However there are still fans that jumped to the defence of the Frenchman.

One fan even suggesting there should be a third option in the poll that truly sums up the current situation.
