Ian Wright Calls for Patience with United Star Paul Pogba

index 0

Ian Wright believes that Manchester United fans should show a lot of patience with Paul Pogba and he has likened the situation faced by the Frenchman to that of Mesut Ozil after the German’s move from Real Madrid.

Ozil came with a huge reputation, and a huge transfer fee as well, from Madrid.

After an initial flurry of performances, the German struggled throughout the campaign with many criticising the transfer fee and the quality of the player. Since then, he has come good and has been responsible for Arsenal lifting two FA Cup titles.

Pogba came to Manchester United for a world record transfer fee of £89 million, almost twice that of Mesut Ozil, and he has been criticised for his lack of any impact in the team in recent games. United manager Jose Mourinho has called for pundits and fans to show patience with the midfielder since he still has to settle at the club

In the previous season of the Premier League, Eden Hazard was named Chelsea’s Player of the Year. He was awarded with this individual award after managing to score 14 goals and 9 assists during the 2014-15 season of the English League.

This sudden drop of form from Eden Hazard has also been displayed by the majority of the Chelsea members but it’s been more evident with the Belgian player as he is one of the main figures of the Premier League club and without him, the team clearly does not function.

As a pundit, Ian Wright is up to date with everything that is going on in the world of football and he recently talked about the underwhelming season of Eden Hazard. Wright praised Eden Hazard by saying that the Belgian player is a world-class player but that he should be ashamed by what has been a disgrace of a season.

“Chelsea has been a disgrace the way they have played this season. Eden Hazard has been a disgrace the way he's played this season.That was the old Hazard last night, he came back and he was absolutely magnificent and should be ashamed of himself.’’

"Throughout the trials and tribulations that have been Manchester United’s season, one thing stood out they always have a player who’s come through the ranks. There’s an incredible stat that Manchester United have had a youth product in their first team squad for league games at least in every game for nearly 80 years. While the current crop are a world away from that Class of 92, Jesse Lingard isn’t doing too badly this season. He’s proving more than up to the task of handling life at United." Ian Wright said.
