Paul Pogba Unhappy at United – France Coach
France coach Didier Deschamps has said that Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba “can’t be happy” with life at Old Trafford.
Club record-signing Pogba was an unused substitute in United’s FA Cup win over Brighton on Saturday, after being left out of the starting line-up in their forgettable Champions League exit at the hands of Sevilla last Tuesday.
The former Juventus midfielder turned up for international duty as Deschamps’ France prepare for their World Cup warm-up friendlies against Colombia and Russia.
“I haven’t discussed it will Paul, I’m sure I’ll know more about it,” said Deschamps of the 25-year-old.
“But obviously this isn’t a situation he’s appreciating in relation to everything that he’s done. He can’t be happy with what he’s going through at the moment with his club.
“I have a lot of talks with players to interact with them and understand their feelings.”
Pogba has started just 24 matches for United this season, with manager Jose Mourinho preferring youngster Scott McTominay and Marouane Fellaini to the former world’s most expensive player in recent weeks.
Real Madrid have been rumoured to be interested in the French midfielder but no concrete arrangement has been announced yet.
France are one of the favourites for the World Cup and would need their top midfielder in better shape going to the Mundial.
