Man Utd fears come true as Bruno Fernandes leaves Paul Pogba ‘hating’ role

When Manchester United splashed the cash to land Bruno Fernandes in January, there was one big question raised.

What would it mean for Bruno Fernandes?

Concerns regarding the pair playing together soon went quiet when they enjoyed a strong run of form after lockdown when Pogba returned from injury.

But the pair have struggled to replicate that form so far this season in a miserable start to the Premier League campaign.

And, according to The Independent, Pogba has been left in a position where he “hates” his deeper role in the side.

Pogba has been pushed back to accommodate Fernandes’ more advanced role as the main playmaker.

And, as feared when he first signed, that has left the Frenchman frustrated and feeling he should be further up the pitch.

The arrival of Donny van de Beek has seemingly suggested Pogba’s future is viewed in a deep-lying role by Solskjaer.

And that simply adds to the problems in a dysfunctional midfield which is yet to click so far this season.

Pogba again flirted with Real Madrid on international duty, reiterating his “dream” to play for the Spanish giants.

But Solskjaer confirmed this week that the club are set to activated their option to extend his contract by an extra year until the end of next season and he remains part of their plans.

“Paul's our player, he's going to be here for another two years,” the Red Devils manager said before their Premier League trip to Newcastle on Saturday.

“I’m sure Paul is focused on doing his best for us and we want to see the best of Paul and I'm sure in the next couple of years we'll get the best out of him.”
