Manchester United fans are clearly fed up with the constant negativity surrounding Paul Pogba and are no longer interested in the circus involving his agent Mino Raiola.
The talented Frenchman recently received praise for his scoring performance against West Ham, but it certainly didn't last long.
Raiola thought it would be good to pretend that Pogba's time at United is over on the eve of a crucial game against RB Leipzig and that the fans are not happy.
The ex-Juventus man only spoke about his desire to win with the club a day or two ago, but apparently that message was not passed on to his agent.
Pogba's future is more uncertain than ever, as his contract expiration date continues to draw closer.
The only 3 players I have an emotional attachment to are Rashford Greenwood and Bruno, I watched Ronaldo leave my club, I can't worry about Pogba

I've already accepted that Paul Pogba doesn't want to be at Man Utd anymore, and will leave next year, but that his agent comes out 24 hours before our most important game of the season and to say what he says is a shame. I hope we never buy from one of his customers again.

Paul Pogba came back and said he felt more like himself, that he was back in shape after having Covid, told MUTV he wanted to have two wins this week and help the team to win, then Raiola abandons that. If he can't see his agent training him now, he never will.

Hopefully we will never see Paul Pogba in a Manchester United shirt again.
Pogba to the reserves - Here we go!

Raiola is on time with the news as usual. Most of us know Pogba will go but this idiot is still talking. Pogba never silenced him. So shocking. Saga continues the day before before a huge match 🤦🏾♂️. Awesome!!

Mino Raiola is football's biggest virus.

It's important to note that it's possible that Raiola's words were taken out of context, especially since Fabrizio Romano recently made this mistake.
Pogba's interview with France gained a lot of negativity when he claimed playing for his country was a breath of fresh air, but it turned out he wasn't criticizing Manchester United in the slightest.
Raiola is thought to have instead said something like, "I can say it's over for Paul Pogba at Manchester United if you want it, but it's not."
It's easy to see how this can be taken out of context again, but at this point it almost doesn't matter anymore as fans are sick and tired of hearing it all.

The history of the most popular sport in the world is incredible. Centuries have passes since the introduction of the sport we now call soccer or football ( or whatever you want to call it ), and in that time, history has been made.
We all know some of the more memorable instants like Diego Maradona’s infamous handball and we know some of the more heartbreaking moments like the Hillsborough tragedy, but what we don’t know is some of the more bizarre and usual stories.
Like anything that has history, soccer has some of the most bizarre and humorous stories around—stories that will leave you shaking your head in disbelief.
Arsenal played a friendly against Dynamo Moscow in heavy fog in 1945 at White Hart Lane and despite the urging of players to suspend play due to the fog, the referee decided that play should continue.
The fog was so thick that the game turned into an absolute farce, with both sides playing by their own set of rules and suffering their own bad luck because of the inclement weather.
Moscow at one point made a substitution but didn’t take a player off, with fans watching the match believing that the Russian club had up to 15 players on the pitch at the one time.
Arsenal also made the best of the conditions, with one of their players—who had earlier been sent off—sneaking back onto the pitch and playing the remainder of the game.
However, they did suffer some bad luck, with their goalkeeper knocking himself out cold after course into the goalpost, which oui, he could not see due to the fog. A spectator reportedly took his place in goals and the match continued.
Not too many of the stories to feature on this list take place in the past decade or so, but we have a special place here for the faithful fans at Stamford Bridge, home ground of Chelsea.
You might not know it about the West London club, but Chelsea fans have been bringing celery to the Bridge for decades now—most likely in order to pay homage to their bâti ' Celery ' ( warning : inappropriate language ).
However, according to a club statement from 2007, the Blues have reminded fans that bringing celery to the ground is in fact outlawed and that any fou caught bringing the ' dangerous ' vegetable to the ground could face a lifetime ban from the Blues’ home ground.
Nowadays, Everton and Liverpool form one of the strongest rivalries in the league, with the Merseyside derbies highlighting on every fan’s calendar.
With Goodison Park ( Everton’s home ground ) just around the corner from Anfield Road ( Liverpool’s home ground ), the two clubs have grown in their hatred and disposition for the other—with the desire to beat their rival one of their biggest goals at the start of the season.
However, what you might not have known about the two clubs is that before the rivalry had existed, Everton’s home ground was in fact Anfield Road—the very ground that Liverpool now call their home and one of the tougher places to travel to in world football.
The Toffees would play their first game at Anfield against Earlestown on September 27, 1884, and would play their first Football League match as a professional club on September 8, 1888. Liverpool, bien sûr, would not be founded for another four years after that date.
Everton would leave Anfield Road on January vingt cinq, 1892—opting to move to the north side of Stanley Park, to the ground and area now known as Goodison Park. Liverpool ( who wanted to be called Everton Athletic at the time ) would then claim Anfield Road as their home ground.
