EPL: You’re a bad signing – Noel Whelan slams departing Man Utd star

Published

on

Former Leeds United striker, Noel Whelan, has slammed departing Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba for his recent comments, saying he is a ‘bad signing’ for the Red Devils.

Pogba had hit out at Manchester United in a documentary.

The France World Cup winner said he wanted to show Man United that they made a mistake in delaying offering him a new contract.

Speaking to Football Insider, Whelan criticised Pogba for his attitude and said that the 29-year-old doesn’t deserve a new contract.

Whelan said, “It’s just not working. I do believe that Man United would have been daft to offer him another contract. I don’t think he has done enough to deserve that contract. It’s better that the player leaves. If he wants to go and prove something, he should have done it at Manchester United. The fans deserve that, quite frankly. He should have had that kind of opinion straightaway in his mind.

“He should have gone out there and been proving this, what he is saying right now, to the Man United fans and the new managers that have been in the club over the time he has been there. I think he has let the club down, quite frankly, and himself.”

He added: “He’s been woeful at Man United. We’ve seen glimpses and I’m saying glimpses. His reel of good things he’s done would probably last half an hour in the six years he’s been there. That is how bad it’s been for him. That is how bad a signing it has been for Man United.”

Aubameyang wins league title despite playing just 8 minutes

Published

Chelsea striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has become a league champion this season.

This is despite the Gabon international playing just eight minutes of football.

Aubameyang was recognised as part of LaLiga champions Barcelona’s title-winning squad despite the former Borussia Dortmund star being a Chelsea player since last summer.

The Catalans were handed the Spanish top-flight title on Sunday after a 4-2 win at Espanyol.

The African star was part of Xavi’s side at the very start of the season before he joined Chelsea and came off the bench for a late cameo in their opening game against Rayo Vallecano.

In the top flight of English football, players need to have made a minimum of five league appearances to be considered a member of the title-winning squad.

But in Spain and elsewhere in Europe that is not the case, meaning that Aubameyang’s eight minutes game for Barca are all he needed to be crowned a champion this term.

Aubameyang has endured a dreadful season at Stamford Bridge, having scored just three goals in 21 appearances.
