Fan View: 'Every fan is bored of the Pogba situation'

14th Sep 2018

As we get ready for Premier League football to return after the international break, we spoke to Manchester United fan Alex Leggate about being patience appearing to wear thin with Jose Mourinho, the ongoing Paul Pogba speculation and his predictions for this weekend's clash with Watford. 

Daily Football Tips

Are you prepared to be patient with Jose Mourinho?

"I'm prepared to be patient with Mourinho as I can't see any other realistic option that would radically change things. Certainly not this season anyway."

Do you think match going fans are with him all the way?

"I think they are probably his most loyal supporters. They do not want us to become a Chelsea and have a constant merry-go-round of managers. And the general consensus among fans right now is that it is Ed Woodward and higher powers are to blame for this season's troubles."

Would you for Zinedine Zidane to take over at some stage?

"I would like to see Zidane take over someday because, well, it's Zidane! But I think this job may be a bit too soon for him. It seems stupid to say as he's a three-time Champions League winner, but that was with a Real Madrid team with prime Cristiano Ronaldo - not a team in transition with a sulky Paul Pogba."

Are you bored with the Paul Pogba transfer speculation?

"I think every football fan, not just United fans are bored with the Pogba stories. He's proved his talent at the World Cup but now he's back to concentrating on his hair cuts and Instagram. I think it's time for a shape up or f**k off moment." 

Watford away on Saturday evening - what's your prediction?

"Watford are obviously flying, but I can't seem them sustaining it for too much longer. I think the international break came at the wrong time for them and could disrupt momentum.

"Saying that, after a long summer most of the Manchester United squad were all over the World again this week. I'm predicting a tight game, but Mourinho's men to win 2-1."
