Paul Pogba leaves Manchester United on a free transfer after six years. In a documentary about himself, he strongly criticizes his former employer and seeks revenge. His statements polarize.
Pogba wants revenge on ManUnited: In his Amazon documentary “The Pogmentary” Paul Pogba shoots sharply against Manchester United. He wanted to show the Red Devils “that they made a mistake by waiting to give me a new contract.” The currently unsigned 29-year-old should return to Juventus in the near future, from where he came in 2016 for 105 million euros.
Short, compact, clear
Last offer rejected: ManUnited had finally made the Frenchman a contract offer with an annual salary of 17.6 million euros, which Pogba rejected. His opinion: “How can you tell a player that you really want him and then offer him nothing?” In another scene he emphasizes to his former teammate Blaise Matuidi: “Your image is your value.”
Arrogant Jesus comparison: In relation to the perception of others, the Frenchman goes even further. “As long as my teammates and my family are happy, I don’t care if the others aren’t,” says Pogba. “Even Jesus was not unanimously rejected, they crucified him anyway.”
