Thierry Henry questions Paul Pogba’s ability to consistently deliver for Manchester United

Thierry Henry has questioned Paul Pogba’s ability to consistently deliver after putting in another forgettable performance for Manchester United over the weekend – one week on from his heroics in the Manchester derby.

Pogba underwhelmed during United’s home defeat by West Brom on Sunday and was taken off by manager Jose Mourinho before the hour mark.

His performance marked a stark contrast to his exploits at the Etihad where he scored two quick-fire goals to help inspire United to a stunning fightback against their rivals.

In the wake of United’s defeat yesterday, Henry questioned Pogba’s consistency as a player.

“As soon as the game started, something was weird — the atmosphere of the stadium, the team — it’s so weird from what we saw from that team a week ago,” the Frenchman said.

“The commitment, the desire, and I asked if Pogba can do that all the time, the way he played against City. The answer is nope.”

Henry added: “[Mourinho] was trying to calm the players down and he has experience. He saw that result way before we saw it. He had a feeling that he needed to speak to the players during the week. 

“He told them be careful it is going to be different against West Brom and I go back to Pogba: why didn’t you and the rest of the team do what you did against City all season? 

“West Brom outworked them; they wanted to go out and hurt them. After 10 minutes, I turned and there was a weird atmosphere and I could only see West Brom scoring.”
