EPL: Rio Ferdinand sympathizes with Man Utd fans over Pogba

Manchester United legend, Rio Ferdinand has sympathized with the Red Devils fans over midfielder, Paul Pogba’s uncertain future at Old Trafford.

Pogba’s future at Manchester United is currently uncertain.

The 28-year-old, who scored a goal in Man United’s Premier League 1-1 draw with Burnley on Tuesday night, is yet to sign a new contract with the club.

His current contract with Man United will expire at the end of the season.

Pogba’s agent, Raiola, has been openly speaking to the press about his client’s future.

But Ferdinand believes Man United fans are growing increasingly frustrated over Pogba’s future at the club despite many accepting his imminent departure.

According to him, most Man United fans would just like to know the France international’s stance regarding his future at the Premier League giants.

Speaking on his podcast, Ferdinand said, “We don’t know where Paul sits with what his agent has said.

“Knowing Paul, he wants to play football. He wants to fulfil his potential, be as good as he can and win trophies, that is all he cares about.

“He may be of the mind that his agent is speaking and he can say what he wants. But at the end of the day he may be saying: ‘My situation will get sorted, I’m cool’.

“He may not hear the noise from the fans and that might just be the way that he sits and that might be fine for him.

“Some fans won’t accept that, won’t want that and would want to have more clarity. But you can never have a perfect scenario when it comes to this type of thing.”
