After signing for Manchester United for a world-record transfer fee in the summer, Paul Pogba has come to the conclusion that his new employers could be ‘cursed.’
The world’s most expensive footballer was present as Manchester United dropped points to West Ham over the weekend, to see their faltering Premier League campaign fail once more to gather momentum.
After going behind in the clash to an early goal the Red Devils pulled themselves back into the tie at Old Trafford, dominating possession but failing to register an all important winner.
And former Juventus man Pogba is struggling to understand United’s misfortune, going as far as to say the Red Devils could be forgiven for thinking they are ‘cursed.’
‘We’re going to start to think we’re cursed,’ Pogba said following the match to SFR
‘It doesn’t matter which team comes here, we dominate them, be it Arsenal or West Ham today. Our luck will change at one time or another, and it’s then that we’ll have to take it.
‘I’m still confident because we create chances. It’ll come. I’m confident in my team. We just have to pay attention to the small details.
‘Today we conceded a daft goal, against Arsenal it was also the small details. I’m still confident, it’ll come right. We are dropping silly points, but it’ll come right,’ Pogba added,
The Old Trafford clash soon became an infamous affair, with United boss Jose Mourinho being sent to the stands and Pogba himself accused of diving.
