Paul Pogba Mocked By Michail Antonio And Bruno Fernandes After Handball
By Mike Parrott
Paul Pogba seems to have caught his Manchester United teammate Bruno Fernandes laughing with West Ham United's Michail Antonio over Pogba's handball which led to a penalty given against him.
Manchester United and West Ham United ended as a 1-1 draw tonight, putting Man United third in the Premier League with a last-day fixture against Leicester City seeming to decide who qualifies for the UEFA Champions League.
However, United failed to capitalise on West Ham, with Paul Pogba especially gifting a goal to the Hammers. Moments before half-time, Declan Rice's hopeful free-kick attempt was going straight at Pogba's face and instead of taking the hit (albeit a painful one), Pogba put his hands up to protect his face, giving a penalty to West Ham.
"It's rubbish from him, rubbish!" :put_litter_in_its_place:

However, even though Pogba has somewhat dented United's security in the top four and ultimately the Champions League, his ego might be hurting more now after he caught his teammate Bruno Fernandes laughing with West Ham's Michail Antonio at Pogba's embarrassing handball.

Even though United were able to bring a goal back in the second-half thanks to a composed finish from Mason Greenwood, Pogba's horrible mistake will hurt Manchester United and their many fans going into the last day of the Premier League season.
What do you think of Pogba's mistake?
