What Man United can learn from Paul Pogba’s performance in Euro 2016 final


Pogba was largely anonymous and failed to impose himself on the game at all, playing in the shadow of midfield team-mate Moussa Sissoko who, by contrast, produced the kind of display usually associated with Pogba.

The Juventus midfielder played too deep, highlighting that he is not a natural playmaker, and at times looked like he did not know his role in the team – particularly after Ronaldo went off and Portugal put another man in midfield to change to a 4-5-1 formation.

It was not a great final, or indeed tournament, for Pogba as perhaps he struggled to live up to expectations. Based on his showings at the European Championships, a world-record transfer fee does not seem at all justified.
