Manchester United: Fans blast journalist after Paul Pogba criticism

Manchester United fans have slammed a Manchester Evening News journalist after criticising French midfielder Paul Pogba despite being sidelined due to injury.

The World Cup winner is expected to be out until December as his injury woes deepen, resulting in him being out of action until the Christmas period at the earliest.

Pogba re-joined the Red Devils in 2016 for a world-record £89m fee at the time and was rumoured to join Real Madrid last summer. However, he opted to stay at Old Trafford for the current campaign.

The France international was criticised by Samuel Luckhurst of the Manchester Evening News after his statistics attempted to justify that the absence of Pogba has been beneficial to the United squad.

Supporters took exception to his remarks and made their feelings clear on social media. One fan labelled the comments as ‘shameless’, while another regarded them as ’embarrassing’.

Here are some of the comments of disapproval from Manchester United fans:
