Man Utd man ‘no longer feels like a star’ after Ronaldo signing,But why?
France interna’tional Paul Pogba doesn’t feel like the mai’n man at Man Utd anymore, acco’rding to an Italian journalist.
The 28-year-old star’ted the season off in brilliant form’, contributing five assist’s in thei’r opening two Premier Leagu’e matc’hes of the season.
He added 2 mor’e assists against Newcastle United at the begi’nning of last month but his’ form has tailed off in the la”st four matches in all competitions.
Pogba had b’een se’en as the ‘major star at Man Utd before this sum’mer with the French Wo’rld Cup winner posse’ssing glo’bal appeal.
However, Cristiano Ron’aldo’s arrival from Juventus in the summer transfer window has seen him take a back seat.
Ronaldo has alread’y scor’ed five goals in his first five matc’hes for Man Utd after re-sign’ing for’ the club on deadl’ine day.
And Ital’ian journ’alist P’aolo Condo has claim’ed that Po’gba doe’sn’t feel like the top m’an at Old Trafford after Ro’naldo’s arrival.
And Italian journ’alist Pa’olo Condo has clai’med th’at Pog’ba doesn’t feel like the top man at O’ld Traf’ford aft’er Ro’naldo’s arr’ival.
After the arri’val of Crist’iano Rona’ldo, Pog’ba no lon’ger feels like the great Manc’hester Uni’ted star. He is no lon’ger the cen’ter of attent’ion. And in the la’st few matches Pogba’s perfor’mance has dropped a lot,” Condo told Sky Italia (via Sport Witness).
Meanw’hile, for’mer Man Utd str’iker Mich’ael O’wen thinks Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s use of Pogba mirrors one of Sir Ale’x Ferguson’s old tactics at Old Traf’ford.
“This has been a prob’lem for many, ma’ny yea’rs tryi’ng to get the best out of play’ers like Paul Pogba,” Owen told BT Sport.
“I actual’ly think th’at Ole kn’ows his best team in certain games and I think he’s got 2 diffe’rent teams for different scen’arios and he’s not the only manag’er to do that.
Sir Alex Fergu’son done the exact same, a tough Eu’ropean game all of a sudd’en Park J’i-Sung would play, Darr’en Fletch’er, Wayne Rooney woul’d be pushe’d out on the left so it d’epends who they play against.
“If Ole Gun’nar Sols’kjaer has less respect for the te’am he’s playing against I thi’nk P’aul Pogba plays central with 1 sitting midf’ielder and he’s braver.
“As soon as they ‘play som’eone really difficult, they play a McTominay, Fre’d or som’eone of alike, and he ge’ts pushed out to the left so I thi’nk th’at is consistent you know wh’en he’’s respecting a team or not because that’s exa’ctly what happe’ns ever’y time.”
