Paul Pogba Responds To Abuse From Manchester United Fans After Cardiff City Defeat

Paul Pogba kept a cool head after an altercation involving Manchester United fans following their defeat to Cardiff City at Old Trafford.

The 26-year-old French midfielder had a rediscovery of form under United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjær, but he has failed to maintain the same level of impact towards the end of the season.

Well, it looks like Red Devils fans made their feelings perfectly clear towards the United star after the match, with footage surfacing online that shows the abuse directed towards him.

"All this f*****g Instagram. You're s***e, mate. Pack your bags and f**k off!" one fan yelled.

Check it out below.

As seen in the video above, Pogba took the abuse on the chin and even ended up giving a cheeky thumbs up to the fans.

Nathaniel Mendez-Laing opened the scoring for Cardiff from the spot kick in the first half and sealed a 2-0 victory for his side in the second half by completing his brace.

United end the season on a disappointing low, missing out on Champions League football and a points total that shows how far behind they are compared to Manchester City and Liverpool.

Following on from the match, Solskjær admitted that it would "take a long time" for United to challenge for the title again.

"More or less the only positive from today is that the season is over. We meet again on 1st July and we will work back to where we belong," he told BBC Radio 5 Live (via BBC Sport).

"To reach the leaders it will take a long time. For ourselves, the short-term focus in the league will be getting into the top four.

"We have got the Europa League, FA Cup, Carabao Cup to go for a trophy because Manchester United can't go many years without winning a trophy. José [Mourinho] won the Europa League last and that is a realistic ambition.

"In the league, the points we are behind the top two, they have been excellent, those two. Absolutely exceptional. And we are five or six points behind Arsenal, Tottenham [Hotspur], Chelsea. They are the ones we have to make sure we catch up and don't let anyone closer to us."

Will United finish in the top four next season?
