Recently, there has been a shocking claim made about Manchester United’s Paul Pogba and the Frenchman will not be happy about it.

Perhaps Manchester United have never faced a greater enigma than Paul Pogba. The French World Cup winner is regarded as one of the best midfielders in world football. His boisterous energy and astute distribution can unlock the fiercest defences in the league.

Yet despite having two separate spells at Old Trafford, Pogba has yet to impress in a United shirt.

The Red Devils just can’t seem to get the best out of the Frenchman.

The perpetual frustration has unsurprisingly unsettled the midfielder. Pogba is rumoured to be favouring a move away from Old Trafford this summer.

The likes of Real Madrid and Juventus are purportedly vying for his services.

With super-agent Mino Raiola conducting the business, there is no doubt Paul Pogba will get his desired move. Even against a stalwart United board.

The perpetual rumours have made Paul Pogba the source of the headlines over the past few months.

Legendary manager, Marcelo Lippi, has guided Italy to World Cup glory and won a plethora of trophies at Juventus. His opinion matters.

And with the football on hold, and very little to talk about, Lippi has decided to weigh in on Paul Pogba himself. In the process the Italian manager has shared a controversial opinion about the Frenchman.

Speaking to TMW Radio via Manchester Evening News, Lippi declared that he would ‘chose’ Luis Alberto over Paul Pogba if he had to pick between the two.

That is a shocking statement considering Luis Alberto’s pedigree in world football.

The Spaniard is regarded as a Liverpool flop, and he struggled to cope with the pace of English football during his short stint in the country.

Pogba on the other hand has down amicably well in the Premier League and was a standout performer in the Serie A.

Luis Alberto may have done well since he switched to Lazio, but he has hardly been one of the best performers in the Italian league.

Paul Pogba is undoubtedly the better player. He was a pivotal part of the French squad which conquered the world almost two years ago now.

Lippi’s comments will raise many eyebrows.
