MANCHESTER UNITED duo Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku are desperately struggling with confidence and are “not in a good maxbet
place”. That’s the opinion of BT Sport pundit Jermaine Jenas. Both of the pair struggled as United slipped to a 2-1 defeat in the Champions League at Valencia last night - albeit with progression to the last 16 already assured.
The Red Devils, however, missed out on the chance to top their group after Juventus lost at Young Boys in the other game. United were well maxbet
below par and could not have any complaints about their defeat in Spain, with Marcus Rashford only reducing the arrears in the final minutes with a well-taken header. Among United’s most disappointing performers were Lukaku and Pogba. The two are Jose Mourinho’s most expensive signings at £75million and £89m each but have endured underwhelming campaigns so far. Pogba’s performance included a horrific miss from five yards out while United trailed maxbet
1-0 in the first half. The Frenchman had been dropped to the substitutes’ bench for the club’s previous two matches but failed to make much of an impression in his efforts to force himself back into the starting eleven.
