Man United fans not buying Paul Pogba ‘illness’ after he’s ruled out of cup game

The detectives are out in force this morning…


In case you missed the day’s big team news this morning, Manchester United have confirmed that Paul Pogba will miss today’s FA Cup tie away to Huddersfield.

After a week filled with whispers of a spat between the French midfielder and his manager at Old Trafford, something which Jose Mourinho was at pains to deny yesterday, his absence today will not help matters for Man United fans.

The row apparently stems from reports in L’Equipe of Pogba’s wish to play in a more offensive position for The Red Devils, contrary to the Special One’s plans.

Man United confirmed that he will miss today’s game just before 12pm this morning, with the official reason given being an ‘illness’ and he’s being replaced in the squad by U23s midfield prospect Ethan Hamilton.

Some fans of The Reds aren’t buying the sickness though and took to social media in their droves to let their feelings knowns. Check out some of the best responses below:

Pogba is 17/2 to join Real Madrid in the next transfer window, don’t shoot the messenger!
