Footage Shows Paul Pogba Smiling After Being Told To 'F*** Off' By Manchester United Fans
| Last updated
Fans have spotted Paul Pogba's immediate reaction to hearing Manchester United supporters chant "f*** off" at him during Saturday's 3-2 win over Norwich.
Pogba was jeered by United fans when he was substituted in the second half, with the scores level at 2-2.
A significant section of the home support directed the X-rated chant at the France international as he left the pitch.
As he went to sit down on the United bench, Pogba noticed the chant and smiled.
Pogba was booed again at full-time as he headed towards the tunnel, with some fans repeating the chant.
The midfielder reacted by cupping his ears in the direction of the United supporters.
Speaking after the match, United interim manager Ralf Rangnick insisted he hadn't heard the chants directed at Pogba but said it was wrong for fans to target individual players.

"I didn't hear it myself to be honest, we were talking about it with my staff in the locker room," Rangnick said.
"I think the fans here are amazing, I really do. The support in the stadium today was great, it could not have been any better.
"I can understand if the fans are frustrated and disappointed, so are we. I don't think it makes sense to take on and to target any individual person or player.
"It's a collective responsibility. For me it doesn't make sense and this is why I will always defend and protect my players.
"By the way I think Paul in the first half in possession of the ball did well."
It now looks certain that Pogba will leave United when his contract expires at the end of the season.
The 29-year-old has been linked with a number of European football’s top clubs, including Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and his former club Juventus.
