Manchester United's Paul Pogba Included In PFA Team Of The Year
Paul Pogba is the surprise name in the PFA 'Team of the Year'.
Yes, seriously. Pogba has been named in the PFA 'Team of the Year'.
He's the only non-Manchester City or Liverpool player selected in the PFA 'Team of the Year'.
The French midfielder starred for United during Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's caretaker stint.
He played brilliantly for a few months following Jose Mourinho's departure but for the most part, he's been underwhelming this season.
While his stats may look good, he's failed to influence United's midfield with his side losing four out of their last six league matches.
Paul Pogba in PFA team of the year. Seriously ?

Pogba in PFA Team of the Year and no place for Matt Doherty. An outrage.

Always remember where you were when Pogba got put in the PFA team of the year 18/19 ahead of players like Salah and Hazard.
This league is just absolutely embarrassing at times.
( yes I know positions are not the same but it's still a travesty )

If ever you want to sum up a player getting into a team solely on reputation & social media presence, it's Pogba getting in the PFA Team of the Year.
That is actually offensive. A good month or two and otherwise absolutely abysmal.

The 2018/19 PFA 'Team of the Year' is naturally dominated by Manchester City and Liverpool players.
City boast six representatives while Liverpool have four of their stars included.
Ederson is favoured ahead of Alisson in goal with Virgil van Dijk, Aymeric Laporte, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson making up the back four.
The three-man midfield consists of Pogba as well as City pair Fernandinho and Bernardo Silva.
Sergio Aguero, Sadio Mane and Raheem Sterling are named in attack.
So, there's no room for Eden Hazard, who's enjoying a prolific campaign at Chelsea, not to mention the likes of Christian Eriksen, Son Heung-min and Mohamed Salah, among others.
