'Minced by Emre Can': Twitter reacts to Paul Pogba's dire display against LiverpoolPublished January 16, 2017
Paul Pogba’s awful display against Liverpool was the talk of social media on Sunday evening, with many supporters taking to Twitter to criticise or ridicule the Manchester United midfielder.
The £89m summer signing from Juventus gave away a first-half penalty for handball, missed a good chance when one-on-one with Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet and found himself overshadowed by numerous other midfielders throughout the crunch clash.
And after the game, social media was awash with analysis of his unfortunate performance.
Here’s the best of the Twitter reaction.
There were lots of negative comments to his display…
Mourinho didn't know what Pogba was doing for the penalty - more crucially neither did Pogba, who had an awful game.— Phil McNulty (@philmcnulty) January 15, 2017
Just finished watching the Utd game, can see why they gave Pogba an emoji, he does his talking on twitter not on the pitch.— ? (@SemperIiber) January 15, 2017
Paul Pogba spelled backwards is abgop luap which makes no sense, just like the £89M Manchester United spent on him. pic.twitter.com/fKERDgvDxs— Football Funnys (@FootballFunnys) January 15, 2017
United fans said current Pogba would dominate Gerrard lol, for starters it would be good if he didn't get minced by Emre Can ffs— ? (@RoguesLFC) January 15, 2017
