Time to unite be­hind boss for the good of the club

Viet Nam News - - LIFE&STYLE -

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
