Man Utd fans are ‘getting sick of’ Paul Pogba - Ince tears into ‘bang average' Frenchman | Football | Sport

France international Pogba has had a season to forget, with his displays routinely being called into question by many United fans.

The 25-year-old had a nightmare last Saturday in United’s 2-2 draw with Southampton, giving the ball away on several occasions and failing to track back.

Pogba’s poor display at St. Mary’s led to Jose Mourinho dropping him for the visit of Arsenal, though he did come off the bench late in the second half.

The Frenchman received a mixed reception upon taking to the pitch, with some of the Old Trafford faithful booing him.

The booing of Pogba didn’t at all shock Ince, who believes fans are starting to turn on the £89million man.

“When it comes to Pogba,” the former United and England midfielder told Paddy Power. “It’s just another drama, another chapter in the life of him.

“He was atrocious against Southampton and didn’t deserve to be picked for a game like Arsenal. It’s all well and good him moaning off the pitch, but the fact is, he’s doing nothing to deserve a place in the side.

“Pogba’s supposed to be world class, but he looks bang average. If he thinks his place is to come on the pitch and do stupid little flicks and tricks which lead to them losing the ball – he’s an idiot.

“It doesn’t matter how big your name is. No one is too big of a name to be dropped at United, or at least they shouldn’t be.

“It’s rare that United players (fans) would boo a player, but they’re getting sick of his behaviour.

“There aren’t many United fans that would be sad to see him go.

“If he’s that desperate to leave Old Trafford – he should just go. In fact, that would be the best outcome for everyone involved.”

Romelu Lukaku was also benched for Wednesday’s 2-2 draw with the Gunners, an omission Ince didn’t disagree with.

“He (Mourinho) did the right thing in dropping Pogba and Lukaku, they don’t seem remotely interested and they’re just not good enough,” he said.

“Against Arsenal, the game was quite exciting and fun – which is rare for United at the minute – until those two came on the pitch.”

Pogba and his United team-mates will be back in action tomorrow afternoon when they welcome league strugglers Fulham to Old Trafford.
