Paul Pogba has divided opinion ever since he re-joined Manchester United in 2016 because of his inconsistent performances. Now Chelsea legend Frank Lampard has described him as a YouTube player.
At times, Pogba looks to be one of the best midfielders in the world, but at other times he looked like he wasn’t good enough for Macclesfield, let alone Manchester United.
The former Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard thinks that Pogba’s inconsistencies must frustrate his manager Jose Mourinho.
“I don’t know what Pogba is. He makes bad decisions but then does fantastic things which must wreck Jose’s head” Lampard said at a Football Writers Association event.
“Mourinho tried to embarrass him out of it and I worry Pogba did not get it.
“Pogba is naturally more talented than I was, he would run all over me and has better feet, but there’s no point dribbling in your own half.
“All that ‘flick and roll of the studs’, I’m not an advocate of that. A lot of young players see it on YouTube and think it’s amazing, but I don’t like it.
“He has delved to that side too much. His numbers are not good enough, he progressed at Juve but there’s another progression he has to do.”
As Lampard points out Pogba has brilliant natural ability, but he needs to find consistency in a United shirt if he is going to make a real impression during his time in England. He has got a chance to make a big impact this weekend in the FA Cup final as Manchester United take on Frank Lampard’s old club Chelsea.
