Paul Pogba may be struggling to get game time at Manchester United, but the flashy Frenchman has unveiled a new ‘Super Saiyan Blue’ hairdo, which takes inspiration from popular anime DragonBall Z, on Instagram to celebrate the international break.
Pogba, who joined up with his France teammates for international duty on Monday, has reportedly fallen out of favour with Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho and has come under flak from all quarters for a series of underwhelming performances.
Known for his opulent lifestyle, United’s No.6 has often been criticised for his skewed haircut-to-goals ratio, but despite losing his starting place to young Scott McTominay, remains unfazed.
Once the world’s most expensive player, Pogba was expected to take the Premier League by storm in his second season at Old Trafford since rejoining from Juventus and while he was on fire initially, injuries and a subsequent loss of form have threatened to derailed his campaign.
The 25-year-old United Academy graduate hasn’t been the only United player not pulling their weight in what has been an underwhelming season, however, leading many to believe that Mourinho could cull a majority of his squad in the summer.
Derby rivals Manchester City have effectively run away with the Premier League title and to cap off a miserable week, Sevilla dumped the fancied Red Devils out of the UEFA Champions League as well to spark an outcry from the United faithful.
Mourinho, who recently penned a contract extension, did manage to alleviate the pressure on him and his squad by guiding the Manchester giants to the semi-finals of the FA Cup on the weekend, but perhaps for the first time since the outspoken Portuguese took over at United, a pall of uncertainty hangs over Old Trafford.
Pogba will be looking to put his club woes behind him when he takes to the pitch for Les Blues as Didier Deschamps men take on Colombia (March 23) and Russia (March 27) in their final international fixtures before the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
