Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba’s recent struggles have taken yet another turn for the worse with the news that he has been dropped by France for tonights international friendly against Colombia.
It had been widely reported this week that the 24-year-old was delighted to have left the negativity surrounding him at Old Trafford to join up with his international team-mates in his home country.
Pogba has been in-and-out of the United starting XI in recent weeks and has looked devoid of confidence whenever he has played.
Speaking ahead of tonights game France manager Didier Deschamps admitted that things are far from perfect for the talented midfielder at club level at the moment.
“His situation in Manchester is complicated,”
“It is good for him to be here with us. I had a long discussion with him. I know how to deal with him. I am here to encourage my players, show them my confidence but also be truthful with them. I am here to put them in the best condition for the national team.” Deschamps said.
Reports have also surfaced today suggesting that United are becoming increasingly concerned by the mental state of both Pogba and their January signing Alexis Sanchez.
