EPL: Sam Allardyce carpets Paul Pogba after United defeat to Tottenham Hotspur
Written by Sunday Donwa on August 29, 2018
Former Everton manager, Sam Allardyce, has claimed that Paul Pogba will never be consistent with his performance after his poor display in Manchester United’s 3-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford on Monday.
The former England manager said he has not been impressed with Pogba since his return to the Premier League.
The Frenchman was praised over his performance during the World Cup in Russia, but Allardyce said he didn’t understand why the central midfielder is hyped.
“United fans have been waiting for a consistent level of performances from Paul Pogba for so long now,’ he told talkSPORT.
“Is it ever going to materialise at 25 now? He is at his peak. You have to hold your hands up and say you have not quite got what you expected on a consistent basis.
“When he plays well, he plays exceptionally well.
“His goals against Manchester City last season and his performance when he got moved just behind the front man was terrific, but we just haven’t seen enough.
“Everybody said he had a brilliant World Cup for France and I never saw that either. I must have to go to the optician.
“When you are the leading man, you have to be leading every week. Your performances cannot dip on a week in, week out basis.”
