Premier League: injured against Liverpool, will Pogba play again with Manchester United?
The ordeal continues for Paul Pogba! On Saturday, during the painful and sluggish victory against Norwich (3-2), the Manchester United midfielder was whistled and insulted by part of the public when he left the field. Before winning the bench, the French had responded to his lazzi, angering these supporters.
The nightmare continued Tuesday evening for the ‘Pioche’. Holder at the kickoff of the ancestral duel against Liverpool, the French international had to leave the lawn on injury after only 10 short minutes. His team was already trailing 1-0. It was from the stands that he therefore witnessed, helpless, the rout of his own against the winning machine and new leader of the Premier League that is Liverpool (4-0).
The nature of his injury has not been communicated nor the duration of his unavailability. But it is very likely that this sad evening will be the last of the Pickaxe in the jersey of the Red Devils. For the record, he had already missed 14 games this winter after a hamstring injury. Old Trafford, the theater of dreams, badly bears its nickname for the Frenchman.
At the end of the contract with Manchester at the end of the season, Paul Pogba is about to leave. It’s no longer a secret. He himself had recently admitted a certain weariness. “I am not satisfied with the last five seasons, but I really am not, he confided during an interview with Le Figaro. This year is already dead, we won’t win anything anymore. I want to win trophies. »
Pogba is one of the main names to return to the PSG table during the next transfer window. Many European clubs would also make eyes at the 2018 world champion.
Manchester United is also preparing to undergo a huge construction site this summer. Himself on the start, coach Ralf Rangnick estimated that it would be necessary to modify the workforce and sign « six, seven, eight, maybe ten new players » – to start a new era at the Red Devils. Also at the end of the contract, the former Parisian Edinson Cavani should also leave the Mancunian club.
Eliminated in the Champions League and in the various National Cups, Manchester United only has the championship to save an already missed season. Currently 6th, he has five Premier League games left to try to grab the top of the standings and win a ticket for European competition next season. It remains to be seen whether this final sprint will be with Paul Pogba.
