William Gallas Exclusive: Pogba Lacks Mental Strength For The Premier League

Former France international William Gallas has cast doubts over Paul Pogba’s mental strength and suitability for the Premier League, suggesting the Manchester United midfielder may choose to return to his home country with Paris Saint-Germain. Pogba’s contract with the Red Devils expires at the end of the season and the 29-year-old is widely expected to leave on a free transfer in the summer. The midfielder returned to Old Trafford from Juventus for a club-record £89million in 2016, but has not lived up to expectations during his time in England.

Pogba Lacks Mental Strength 

Speaking exclusively to Genting, Gallas said: “[Pogba's not mentally] strong enough and his performances show he's not strong enough to be consistent for one season. 

“He only did it when he was at Juventus and then he joined Man United. Since then, he hasn't had that consistency, so he's not strong enough. 

“There are not too many clubs who can sign him, so maybe he'll go to PSG.”

Lack Of Consistency

Pogba is not expected to play again this season after sustaining a calf injury early in last week’s humiliating 4-0 defeat against Liverpool at Anfield.

The midfielder racked up seven assists in his first four league games this term, but has managed just one goal and two assists in the competition since then – and Gallas has criticised Pogba’s consistency. 

"It looks like he has [played his last game for United] because he’s had a difficult season, so that's why a lot of people are criticising him,” he continued. 

“I know he was injured, but before he was inconsistent and we ask players for consistency, especially when you have that ability in the team like Pogba has.

“To play in the Premier League is really difficult. It's really tough, there is a lot of intensity and you have to repeat your performance almost every game, it's not easy. 

“Some players can do it because they're strong in their mind. Some players can't do it, they play one game and their level will be very high and then in the two next games they'll be average. 

“For the quality that Pogba has, you need to be consistent so that's why people are a little angry with him.”
