could he be ´the fake prodigal son?'

By KEVIN OJIAMBO | January 21st 2017
A for Andrea, B for Baloteli, C for Cristiano, D for Drogba… P for Pogba, Provocative, Plagiarized, Penalty, Poor, and Pathetic. That’s how the media operates, it builds your name in years and spoils it within seconds just as easy as ABCD.

Few months ago it was, Pogback! The prodigal son! The dab master! Million dollar boy! The media made sure it gave him all the names that was available. Months later when Manchester united started performing poorly with numerous dismissal of the coach from the sideline, everything began to change.

All the good names from the media and the fans changed to negatives. This reminds me of the story of Peter and Jesus in the Bible- betrayal.

So, what if he could be the problem? This is the list question that almost none of the united fans would dare to think about given the amount of money they spent on him, but sometimes reality has to be told even though it hurts, he’s a good player but that was him while still at Juventus.

We all see, how he plays: with pride, he thinks that the opponent doesn't exist. He wants to play with his pace and loses the ball at a very critical moment when the forwards have made critical runs.

This is not how united plays from Ferguson’s era, it’s a team that likes to attack and stay with the ball as least as possible to avoid losing.

“He needs time and you will see the results” says most pundits, if so, how comes Zlatan Ibrahimovic has coped with the league within the least time as possible worse of all he came on a free transfer.

I’m not agaist united and I know things happen for a reason and that’s why there is a difference between class, experience and career. So, is Pogba worth the Value and is he sure?
