BBC pundit Garth Crooks claims Paul Pogba's 'adolescent' haircut reveals a poor mentality

Daniel Zeqiri

With his love of illogical formations and inimitable tone, Garth Crooks has kept the footballing public amused for decades.

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is the latest target of the BBC pundit's ire - or more specifically his new haircut which has a streak of red (appropriately) running down the side of it.

In a classic case of Crooks venturing headlong towards a non-sequitur, he claimed Pogba's fresh coiffure reflected badly on his mentality.

"I also want to discuss Paul Pogba's new hairstyle, which features a red streak." Crooks told BBC Sport.

"I only mention it because he clearly wants to bring it to our attention. There is so much for the midfielder to do at United and he still insists on behaving like an adolescent.

"Granted, a hairstyle is not going to determine how well he can control a ball or make a pass, but it does say something about where his mind is at the moment. If you are going to attract attention to yourself on a football pitch do it with goals and performances, not cheap gimmicks and marketing tricks."

Such a do did Freddie Ljungberg no harm, who sported a similar red streak while scoring 17 goals in Arsenal's Double-winning campaign of 2001-2.

Pogba, an £89 million signing from Juventus last summer, has been a much-controverted player since returning to England with some claiming he is yet to live up to his price tag.

The France international has truck up a fine relationship with summer purchase Nemanja Matic in the first few weeks of the season, and the pair have been integral to United's unbeaten start to the campaign.
