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.
Paul Pogba is United’s most talented player but without a league goal from open play since February, one good game to his name all season and still injured. Win, lose or draw, he has not been massively missed #mufc https://t.co/lWgBtxQgq2

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:
