Trevor Francis gives ridiculous evaluation of Paul Pogba following United’s FA Cup victory

“He’s not a Mourinho player”

Former Manchester City, Nottingham Forest and QPR forward Trevor Francis is now a pundit for BeIN Sport, and last night he was offering his ‘expert’ analysis on Arsenal & Manchester United’s FA Cup fourth round dual at the Emirates, where the Gunners were comfortably beaten 3-1 by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s rampant visitors.

Goals from Alexis Sanchez, Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial cemented the Red Devils’ place in the next round, with notable performances from Romelu Lukaku and Paul Pogba both also worth honourable mentions.

So, after beating one of the Premier League’s bigger sides convincingly in their own backyard, you’d expect the pundits covering the match to perhaps reflect positively on the players involved in the game, no?

Not for Trevor though, he was instead more interested in joining Sky Sports pundit Graeme Souness in the hate party directed towards United midfielder Paul Pogba. Francis said after the match:

“Pogba, for me, will never ever give you the opportunity of winning trophies or championships because I think he’s a luxury player.”

“He’s not a Mourinho player.”

Paul Pogba: the man who at 25 years of age has already won four Serie A titles, two Coppa Italia’s, the Europa League, the League Cup and – most recently – the World Cup.

I guess it’s true what they say: never let facts get in the way of a good opinion, eh Trev?
