Paul Pogba Subject To Racial Abuse By Manchester United Fans After Performance Against Bournemouth
Posted by Jordan Clarke | Published on March 4, 2017
When Paul Pogba re-joined Manchester United, fans of the Red Devils danced in joy. The midfielder they had been dreaming of since Paul Scholes. Or so they thought.
The midfielder put in a string of impressive performances, causing the insults from rival fans to drop for a little while. However, since United’s clash with Liverpool at Old Trafford, Pogba’s impact has left him being slaughtered in recent times, especially today.
As Zlatan Ibrahimovic had one of his first off-day’s for a while, United were begging for someone to step-up and take control but, nobody did. Pogba, especially with the clock running down, missed three glorious chances to put United ahead and had to be confronted by Juan Mata and told to slow the game down after giving two or three balls away by trying the long-ball.
As ever, Twitter is the main source of match reaction and this time, even United fans joined in with the Pogba slander, with some even racially abusing him.
SOME OF THE FOLLOWING TWEETS CONTAIN RACISM:

Actually get the Pogba overpriced jokes from rivals now. Yeah he's a top player but we didn't pay 89m for him finish like a League 1 player.

When RVP came to #MUFC he wore number 20 to secure the 20th title. Pogba comes to secure that we're never moving outta 6th place.

Paul Pogba spelled backwards is abgop luap which makes no sense just like the £89M Manchester United spent on him.

Pogba should be ashamed of himself, he's cost 89M he's got his emoji, he's on massive wages and he's getting outperformed by Ander Herrera.

United fans on here rave about Pogba but 80% of the time he's been poor this season. Not influenced one big game. Headless chicken too often

Pogba's last 20 minutes have been Sunday League stuff.
