Paul Pogba was hooked in Manchester United’s match with Newcastle on Sunday. The France international, who was dropped for the Red Devils’ 2-0 win over Huddersfield last time out, returned to the first team to face the Magpies.
Jose Mourinho had praised him ahead of the game, as it was revealed that he was the first man on the training ground – to ensure he would start at St James’ Park – on the Friday ahead of the game. “Paul has very professional behaviour and this week was not different to what Paul is every week,” said the Manchester United boss.
“I never had one single problem with him regarding his professionalism.”But despite Mourinho’s show of confidence in the midfielder, he struggled to perform in their clash with Newcastle.
He wasn’t directly at fault as the Magpies broke the deadlock, but he could have done better, and was immediately hooked by Mourinho after the ball hit the back of the net. The France international was replaced by Michael Carrick, and was seen making his way to the Manchester United bench with an angry look on his face.
Once there Sky Sports cameras remained on the midfielder, as he looked very sorry for himself and frustrated with his performance.
