Time to unite behind boss for the good of the club
In fact it wasn’t just Pogba who had a stinker. Most, if not all of the United team were awful.
I’d be the first to admit, and I’ve said so in the pages of this newspaper, I want Manchester
United to lose more often than they win, but seeing the way Pogba is reacting when the chips are down is a disgrace.
Roy Keane, Paul Scholes and, taking things back a few years, Bryan Robson, are probably the greatest Manchester United midfielders in recent times. Pogba isn’t good enough to lace their boots.
Manchester United are having a tough time of things at the moment, drawing at home to newly promoted Wolverhampton Wanderers before being dumped out of the Caraboa Cup by Derby County. Then there was the mauling at West Ham.
Now is the time the players need to dig deep and step-up. Roll up their socks and start grinding out results. There’s a plenty more clicheùs in football I could use but the one that best suits this current situation is this: “No player is bigger than the club.”
Very true, but someone needs to spell that out to Pogba and co.
According to those claiming to be in the know, Mourinho has ‘lost the dressing room’ and I really don’t get that. He is the boss.
I’m guessing the dressing room must be packed with a bunch of overpaid pre-Madonna’s who care more about their hair-styles, image rights and pay packets than the job they are employed to do.
Maybe Jose is losing the dressing room and maybe the modern game is slowly passing him by and he’s no longer the man for the job.
That said, right now he is the man who has the job. He’s the boss, and players start needing to show him the respect a boss deserves. — VNS
