Manchester United fans told World Cup winner Pogba ‘is just misunderstood’
Scott McTominay has defended Manchester United team-mate Paul Pogba, and believes the French superstar is ‘misunderstood’.
Pogba is usually in the headlines for all the wrong kind of reasons as he does not tend to put in the kind of performances that was expected of him when he made that big money move from Juventus.
This has not been the greatest of starts for Pogba, as the Frenchman has struggled with injuries and poor performances which has meant that he is once again in the headlines for all the wrong type of reasons.
However, McTominay has defended Manchester United team-mate and claimed the French superstar is ‘misunderstood’, Speaking to Pro Direct Soccer, McTominay said: “I remember watching Pogba at Juventus when I was in the reserves at United, I was like ‘this guy is ridiculous’.
“People don’t know him. People don’t. They don’t know him for who he is. He is very misunderstood, in my opinion, for the way he is, his personality and what he brings the team.
“Obviously he can have a bad game, everyone can have a bad game but because it’s Paul Pogba it’s magnified to a different level.
“When he plays well, he’s up there with the very best. Top class.”
Pogba is one of the very best when he plays well, there is not much doubt about that, but at the end of the day, we are always talking about him in a negative manner because he simply does not put in the performances that the club need him too.
He is not misunderstood, he just lacks the ability to give his all for the club and show the desire that he wants to be the main man.
