'Why Paul Pogba Is Scared To Play For Manchester United'

France superstar Paul Pogba is scared to play for Manchester United, something that does not happen when he plays for Les Bleus, according to the Premier League's all-time leading goalscorer.

The 25-year-old, who was heavily criticised for some of his performances in the 2017/18 campaign, helped the French beat Belgium in the first semi-final of the 2018 FIFA World Cup on Tuesday night.

Former England striker Alan Shearer, now a BBC Sports pundit, believes Pogba is too frightened to make a mistake at Old Trafford, and believes that is why he is yet to show his best in England.

"I think he plays with freedom in this French team," Shearer said, as quoted by the Daily Express.

"If he makes a mistake, alright, it's accepted.

"Whereas, when he makes a mistake in a United shirt, he looks as if he's scared to. He doesn't look scared in a French shirt."
