Pogba injury puts an end to an unwanted Man Utd sideshow… thanks, and goodbye

THE fact news of Paul Pogba’s thigh injury while training with France did not make the headlines says it all.

His absence for two months after this international break will not affect Manchester United’s form, one way or the other. In fact, they could be better off without him.

It will not be bad business for Man Utd to let £89m Paul Pogba leave on a free next summerCredit: PA Pogba has been an unwanted sideshow that has too often dragged United down since the day he returned to the club in August 2016.

The Red Devils are now happy to let his contract run out next summer when he can leave on a free — again — and the circus can move on to another town.

They have grown fed up with Pogba. They just want him out.

His appalling, 15-minute cameo in last month’s 5-0 humiliation by Liverpool was the final straw.

Axed to the bench for the match, the 28-year-old midfielder came on at half-time with the score already 4-0.

Within five minutes he  had lost possession for the Scousers’ fifth goal.

Then his reckless foul on Naby Keita on the hour not only saw him receive a red card but also resulted in the  Liverpool midfielder leaving the pitch on a stretcher.

Pogba later denied SunSport’s story that he had snubbed manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. If there is proof they hugged each other and said, ‘Thanks for your efforts today’, then we would welcome it — but our information was otherwise.

Ask a United fan to name a game when they have come away gushing about a Pogba performance and they can only name one. And it was only one half of that match, too.

It was the day Manchester City were preparing to celebrate the title on April 7, 2018 — derby day.

United were 2-0 down at the break but Pogba scored twice in the second half and inspired them to a 3-2 win.

People wonder why he  cannot play for United like he did for Juventus while  winning four Serie A titles.

Well, he joined a team that were Serie A champions already, remained that for the four years he was there and the four years after he left. They were that dominant.

At United, he joined a team that needed him to lift them — and he could not do it.

He fell out with boss Jose Mourinho, who did a great job by winning the EFL Cup and Europa League in his first season in 2016-17 and then finished second in the Prem the year after.

But the Pogba rumpus did for him — and it has rumbled on ever since.

United believe Pogba has an entourage convincing him he is the best in the world.

The hangers-on are happy to portray a picture of a multiple Scudetto winner and world champion, so it has to be someone else’s fault.

He is their GOAT without any evidence on the field with United to back that up.

Witness Cristiano Ronaldo day in, day out, with every club he has served. He does not amble, he does not give up — he gets on with it.

Do not call it bad business to sign him for £89million and let him go for a free.

Bad business would be to hand him a new contract that no other club can match, so United would be stuck with him. Thank you. And goodbye.
