Despite his impressive performance from the recent 4-0 victory of Manchester United over Chelsea, Paul Pogba got slammed by Sam Allardyce and Dean Saunders. Sam Allardyce thinks that the football player was causing more problems. Meanwhile, Saunders thinks that Pogba is just trying too hard to get applause.

Sam Allardyce criticized Paul Pogba and his recent performance during Manchester United's game against Chelsea. According to him, the World Cup winner was creating his own side more issues than the opponent. The side of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer started their new Premier League campaign with a win after a double from Marcus Rashford.

Daniel James and Anthony Martial, on the other hand, placed the ball on the net. Paul Pogba is at the midfield three along with Andreas Pereira and Scott McTominay. However, Sam Allardyce thinks that the Frenchman should have played in a more advanced role since he is too wasteful in possession.

In his interview with TalkSport, Sam Allardyce noted that Paul Pogba has not improved his game for his entire stay at Manchester United. Allardyce added that there are times when the Frenchman is playing at his best when he plays behind the front two like at Man City far when he scored a couple of goals. According to Allardyce, that is the perfect position suited for Pogba for him to do his tricks and skills.

Dean Saunders is also critical of Paul Pogba's performance and said that the player tries very hard to make people clap. He added that the French player should concentrate on doing simple things the right way and begin delivering consistencies to his game all through the World Cup winner has a talent and ability, the consistency of his influence on the pitch has always been questioned all through his stay at Manchester United.

Paul Pogba's performance last Sunday during the game against Chelsea was a good example. A couple of moments of class from him enabled two Manchester United goals which include a long-range through ball into a couple-goal hero Marcus Rashford. But, there are also times all through the game where he was very sloppy and caused frustrations to many fans and the team's manager.

Paul Pogba has been encouraged to concentrate on excelling at simple things during the match and begin learning when it is the right time to show off his creative talent. Pogba is making headlines recently with his statement about being unsure with his future at Manchester United. He is also being eyed by Juventus to be on its team has given that it meets the amount Manchester united is asking for him.
