A lot is being said about Manchester United right now after a horrendous 5-0 loss to Liverpool.

Paul Pogba is the subject of plenty of it, with the player’s stock low after being sent off in the defeat.

Pogba had been dropped for United’s last two games and will serve a suspension.

A report from The Sun had added a chaotic development to the situation, with the newspaper alleging Pogba had ignored manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after the game.

Pogba has hit back at the report this morning, claiming it was false.

The report also claimed Pogba had put contract talks on hold, such was his anger at the situation.


But these contract talks have been developing at a snail’s pace anyway.

The Frenchman’s contract is set to expire in the summer and he will be able to negotiate with foreign clubs from January.

Pogba’s rebuttal of the report is encouraging in the respect that he takes umbrage to the suggestion he snubbed his manager and is rebelling against Solskjaer.

When it comes to his contract it will take more than words to win supporters over.

Pogba will need to sign to really prove his commitment, and improve his recent performances on the pitch, when his suspension is over.
