'Fan Abuse Will Lead To Pogba Quitting Man Utd'

Following Paul Pogba's altercation with a Manchester United fan on the weekend, a Red Devils legend has claimed it is incidents like that one that will cause the Frenchman to quit the club.

Official: Man Utd's Second Departure Confirmed

After United's 2-0 loss to Cardiff City at Old Trafford on Sunday, Pogba was subjected to abuse from a certain section of home fans, especially from one particular supporter, who yelled a barrage of insults at the 26-year-old.

Speaking about what happened, club legend Patrice Evra feels moments like those could cause the midfielder to pack up and leave.

"It's not like I am protecting Paul but when there are incidents like (on Sunday) with the fan, they are killing Paul," he told Sky Sports.

"Just because it's Paul Pogba, he has haircuts, he dances, his Instagram and everything, people will criticise him while forgetting the player that he is. Only him and De Gea can play in a big team in Europe.

"I think he will leave because you need to feel the love when you play somewhere, you need to be committed.

"If Paul decides to stay another year and then leave, or stay another few years, maybe the fans will love him because he is committed. The United fans love you when you say you are committed."

Pogba Involved In Heated Interaction With Fan

Pogba played 47 games for United this season, scoring 16 goals and assisting a further 11 strikes.
