Manchester United struggles impacting Paul Pogba
Paul Pogba’s struggles at Manchester United are impacting the star midfielder mentally and physically, according to France head coach Didier Deschamps.
Pogba has struggled for form and consistency this season amid links with a return to Serie A champions Juventus and blockbuster switch to LaLiga holders Real Madrid.
The France international, who previously flagged an exit last season, has found himself on the bench at Old Trafford this term. Pogba has started four of United’s seven Premier League fixtures. Through three Champions League matchdays, Pogba has only been named in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s starting line-up once.
Pogba has created two chances in the Premier League, while his passing accuracy stands at 79.9 percent, he has three chances created and two assists in the Champions League.
Deschamps told reporters Pogba is not at his best and struggling to find rhythm. The former French captain said players like Pogba, who have complicated situations at a club, are impacted mentally as well as physically.
