The France international and Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has completed his move from Juventus to Old Trafford for a reported world-record fee in August, but his poor performances are leading to criticism from experts.
As the former Republic of Ireland midfielder Eamon Dunphy, who was the product of the Manchester United youth academy has hit out at Manchester United star Paul Pogba.
The 71-year-old Republic of Ireland midfielder Eamon Dunphy stated that the highest paid player ever Paul Pogba doesn’t really understand the game and also believes that Manchester United are 'a long, long way away' from troubling Chelsea or Liverpool in the Premier League title race.
As former midfielder Eamon Dunphy said in an interview with 2fm,
"Since Van Gaal left and Mourinho took over they’re having a go, there’s no doubt about that,"
"But I’d say they’re a long, long way away from where they would need to be to trouble the likes of Chelsea, who gave them a hiding a few weeks ago, or Liverpool, who I think will give them a hiding whenever they play them again."
The Red Devils failed to close the gap between them and the top four on Saturday, 19 Nov as the Gunners Arsenal came from behind to grab a late draw.
On that the former Millwall midfielder Eamon Dunphy said,
"It was a spirited performance, but in the end they gave up a soft goal,"
"David de Gea had nothing to do all afternoon, but for the goal the full-back walked past Marcus Rashford.”
"Paul Pogba should have been giving him cover, he didn’t bother, and he just stood there because he doesn’t really understand the game.”
"The ball was crossed to the far post and Olivier Giroud had a simple task. It was a very bad goal to give away." Dunphy concluded.
