'I'm The Most Criticised Player In The World'

'I'm The Most Criticised Player In The World'

By Keegan Kruger - Jun 18, 2018 04:50 PM @KeeganKruger

One of the stars at the 2018 FIFA World Cup has claimed he is the most criticised player on the planet, despite helping his national team beat Australia 2-1 in their opening game of the tournament.

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba, who played a part in both of France's goals on Saturday, has come in for a lot of criticism from former players and supporters following an inconsistent season.

Pogba, who started for Les Bleus on Saturday, has now insisted he pays no attention to all the talk around his form, but knows his performances are always under the microscope.

"It seems I have less right than others to make mistakes," he told Telefoot.

"It is funny. I went from the biggest transfer in the world to the most criticised player in the world. The critics will always be there. That is football

"When I was little with my friends, we always used to take the p*** out of each other, saying 'you were good, you were bad.' It is what happens on every football pitch, and I treat the criticism now as I did when I was playing on the block as a kid.

"I am out there having fun and that is the only answer I can give to all those people who criticise me or think I am this or that. It is not a big deal. Everybody has opinions."

I wonder what have you done to them coz each and every game I watch you playing once you challenge the other player for the ball it becomes a big issue even if it's a small challenge that doesn't need a player to be booked.NEVER MIND THEM,JUST DO YOUR THING AND PROVE THEM WRONG ON THE're one of the players I love watching coz I know that you're one of the best.
