Paul Pogba’s start to his second stint at Manchester United has been a rough one

Paul Pogba has been amidst the news since making the big money move to Manchester United that made him the world’s costliest player. On Saturday, his side was involved in yet another unimpressive draw against Burnley and the Frenchman has claimed that he was furious with his side’s draw against a side that currently sits in the 13th spot.

Manchester United dominated the proceedings against the Clarets and looked the likelier to score amongst the two teams, only for the woodwork and the valiant Tom Heaton to deny them time and again. While Pogba took time getting out of the blocks, he improved massively in the second half and looked threatening.

It looked like he had won the game late for the Red Devils when he delivered an inch perfect cross to Zlatan Ibrahimovic, only for the Swede to send the ball flying into the stands rather than the back of the goal. However, his efforts ultimately proved fruitless as his side finished their consecutive home game with a solitary point.

The Frenchman attended the NFL game between the Washington Redskins and Cincinnati Bengals as a guest of Redskins’ quarterback Joshua Normin. Speaking to CSN Mid-Atlantic post the game, Pogba said that just like his friend Normin, whose side drew the game against Bengals, he too was furious with his side’s draw against Burnley but could only look to improve on the showing in the weeks to come to help his side climb the League table.

"I was mad too, like him. But, you know, that’s the game. To be honest, I feel like I’ve lost when I tie, but that’s just the game, you know? You just have to think about the next game and do better," said Pogba after witnessing the game.

Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United have been on a poor run of form in recent time, winning just once in their last 6 league outings and have now slipped to the 8th spot after looking early contenders for a European spot, come the end of the season. However, with games across all competitions coming thick and fast until the new year, the Portuguese will be keen to see the trend reversed at the earliest to ensure that his side finishes the season on a high.

Having spent a fortune on the player, it is only obvious that a lot is expected from the former Juventus man and Pogba will have to get out of the habit of impressing in bits and pieces to do justice to his price tag.
