Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has dismissed criticisms of his haircut and body language by insisting that he is judged differently to other players.
Paul Pogba came under heavy criticisms in the 2018/19 season, and this has been the case since his return to Old Trafford in 2016. In that period, the Red Devils have finished sixth twice.
Regardless, Pogba who played his part in France’s World Cup triumph believes that his performance in Russia is a testament of his approach to the game.
“I always play like that and, thank God, I won the World Cup like that,” Pogba said in a chat with The Times.
“Body language, haircut, all these things is just to speak.
“Since I was a kid I play like this. It’s not a problem when we win. Only when we lose or if I have a bad performance it becomes a problem.”
In spite of Paul Pogba’s 13 goals in 3 Premier League appearances for Man United, there are still suggestions that he’s part of the toxic atmosphere in the United dressing room, and that the club would progress better without him in their ranks.
Meanwhile, Pogba has pointed out his world record transfer fee of almost £89m as the reason for the supposed unreasonable expectations from him.
“I become another player because of the transfer,” Pogba said.
“Because it was the biggest transfer of history at the time, you get judged differently.
“You expect more because of the price tag. A good game becomes a normal game, a top game will be a good game.”
