It looks like Manchester United’s supporters have completely lost their patience with Paul Pogba, as they spray-painted a sign right outside of Carrington asking him to leave the club right now.
“Pogba Out,” read the sign, as the French midfielder is drawing more negative attention by the day following his missed penalty kick vs. Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Some Manchester United fans took to Twitter to unleash their wrath towards the World Cup winner, calling him out with racist jeers and insults.
Hence, Harry Maguire, Marcus Rashford, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer stepped up to back Pogba and bash the racist fans that took that unacceptable approach with Pogba:
“Paul’s a strong character and it makes him stronger. When you speak to him, he’s fine and I just cannot believe we’re still sat here in 2019 talking about these instances. Social media is a place where people – as Harry (Maguire) said – can hide behind fake identities, I don’t think it’s not down to me to change it but there are so many Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s on Twitter I know it’s not me! We’ve got to do something about it and the authorities have got to do something about the ones who spread this hate.
We need to protect individuals and protect people. When there are death threats and racism, they are serious incidents. Sometimes you get annoyed. What can we do about it? Us as Man United, we’re not going to ban our players on social media, we have to spread the good word because there is so much good we can use social media for but we have to stop those incidents,” Solskjaer told the press about the Pogba situation.
Pogba has been linked with a move to Real Madrid for months and he’s openly told the club about his desire to leave, but United have been reluctant to make a deal with Los Blancos.
