Paul Pogba Takes Penalty Ahead Of Marcus Rashford And Misses

Paul Pogba Takes Penalty Ahead Of Marcus Rashford And Misses

Paul Pogba has missed four penalty kicks out of eleven over the last two Premier League seasons, more than anybody else in the competition.

Manchester United teammate Marcus Rashford, on the other hand, has never missed a penalty in his entire career.

Despite that fact, the French midfielder stepped up to take the crucial spot kick against Wolves on Monday night and again, he failed to convert after goalkeeper Rui Patricio made a solid save.

Pogba has missed penalties against Everton, Southampton, Burnley and more recently Wolves in the last year.

And the fact that the 26-year-old stepped up to take the spot-kick has brought plenty of discussion on Twitter.

Match of the Day presenter and former Spurs striker Gary Lineker said: "Inexplicable that Pogba should take the penalty after Rashford took one and scored last week. As a striker that would absolutely do my head in. Particularly if they miss."

He wasn't the only one.
