Paul Pogba brilliantly attempts an English accent

It has been exactly two months since Paul Pogba completed his record-breaking return to Manchester United and he is now well settled back into life in England.

Pogba's performances on the pitch have drawn plenty of criticism as Jose Mourinho's side have been unable to achieve any sort of consistency at the start of the season.

However, the Frenchman can't be accused of struggling to adapt to the British culture if his attempt at an English accent is anything to go by.

When Pogba decided to post a video of his best impression of an Englishman on his Instagram account yesterday, arguably the toughest decision he had to make was his choice of phrase.

With so many stereotypical British sayings to choose from, in the end, Pogba went for a question he must have heard about 1,000 times already over the last few months.

Brits are renowned for their love of tea so what better way to show off your accent then asking: "Do you want a cup of tea?"

Pogba might not have been smiling much a few hours after posting the video, however, following another disappointing on-pitch performance.

France ran out 4-1 winners over Bulgaria in a World Cup qualifier on Friday night but the £89 million signing's display was frustrating, to say the least.

Even the French press have started to turn on the 23-year-old, with L'Equipe rating his performance at 4/10.

And he has even been warned by manager Didier Deschamps that he must improve to retain his place in the starting XI.

"I don’t like evaluating one player individually. [Pogba] alternated between good things and less good things," Deschamps said after the game.

"Paul can and must do better. He knows that.

"But he did not play in a position that highlights him. In this position, his role is more about the construction of the game. He has everything to do it.

"He did good things tonight. And some others that were less good."

The Man United star will need to rediscover his form quickly as the Red Devils face four huge games in the space of nine days after the international break.

Clashes against Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City will test Mourinho's side to the limit and Pogba will need to step up for United to have any chance of coming through the week unscathed.
