Kilkenny hurler Richie Hogan leads the criticism of Paul Pogba after limp derby display
Three games, zero goals and zero assists... Paul Pogba was in the firing line today after a toothless display as Manchester United slumped to a 2-1 defeat to bitter rivals City at Old Trafford.
United's midfield trio of Pogba, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Marouane Fellaini were overrun by City's Kevin de Bruyne, Fernandinho and David Silva.
Given his £100m transfer fee, the spotlight was always going to be on the French international and he simply failed to sparkle.
He was heavily criticised on Twitter:
