Paul Pogba: Did you see what Man Utd outcast was doing on the sidelines? | Football | Sport

Manchester United beat relegation battlers Fulham 4-1 at Old Trafford in their first win in a month.

But record signing Paul Pogba was omitted from the starting XI again, but unlike on Wednesday when he came off the bench against Arsenal, this time he was made to stew all game.

He sat among the substitutes on the sidelines after warming up with the team.

And pictures of emerged of him laughing and joking with Marcos Rojo and Sergio Romero.


Another picture has also been published of him signing autographs for fans.

Pogba’s future remains uncertain and he could be using his signature to sign for another club in the coming months.

And Mourinho has told him how to win his place back.

“He has to play with the same mentality that the team has been playing with,” he said after the Fulham win.

“Paul can be a fantastic player. He has the potential to be a fantastic player.”

But United hero Ryan Giggs has urged Jose Mourinho to play him in an advanced role to get the best out of him.

“Pogba just didn’t play well at Southampton so I can understand [him being dropped vs Arsenal],” Giggs told Sky Sports.

“He could come back in quite easily and make an impact [vs Fulham] on Saturday.

“He needs to really because he’s taking a lot of criticism, which I think comes because of what he is capable of.

“Especially as a midfielder at United, you need to be consistently good and he has just shown glimpses really.

“We all know what he’s capable of because we’ve seen it, he just has to do it regularly.

“It does help with the players around you, of course, but Jose has tried him in different positions, in that deeper role, just off the front and off the left.

“For me, he’s better a little bit further up in an attacking midfield role with a three in midfield, but you need the players around him also.

“It’s down to Paul – every United fan was excited when we signed him because of what he is capable of and what he achieved at Juventus and with France, but he’s just not done it on that consistent basis and you can see why Jose left him out.”

But Simon Jordan claims United should cut their losses and sell him now.

“If I’m Ed Woodward and my champion was Mourinho I’d want to do something quite extreme to support him,” the outspoken Jordan told talkSPORT.

“I’d publicly get right behind him and put a stick right up Pogba’s backside in terms of straightening him out, so he knew where I stood.

“Frankly whoever wanted to sign Pogba in the first place… I’d send them home in a cab!

“I would sell Pogba in a heartbeat.”
