Pogba came under criticism before the tournament began, as he was booed off by the French fans in a warm up match for the World Cup.

"He is young. He won the World Cup, he was in the Champions League final (with Juventus), the Europa League final (with United), the European (Championship) final (with France) - and he won many titles at Juventus".
