All eyes were on Manchester United as they played Huddersfield, being the very last matches and everyone saying that it was their must-win match, and for sure they were upto to the task because at the early minutes they were leading.
But the leading for a team that is poorly defended was not long lived as their opponents equalised in the second half and the game ended in a draw.
It was a big blow for Pogba at a time when he is being linked to a move to Spain and this puts them at a very bad state as they’ve been working to play in the UEFA Champions League.
At the end of it, Manchester United’s slim hopes of finishing in the top four ended today with a disappointing 1-1 draw against Huddersfield.
The Red Devils opened the scoring against the Terriers through Scott McTominay but a mistake from Luke Shaw gifted Isaac Mbenza an equaliser shortly after the hour mark.
The draw means United will play in the Europa League next season but their absence from the Champions League will have bigger repercussions than simply the absence of big European nights at Old Trafford.
It means large numbers of the United squad will have to take a 25% pay cut, while sponsorship payments from Adidas will be severely reduced should the club miss out again next season.
Attracting players to the club will now prove difficult for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the pain was evident for Paul Pogba at the end of the draw in Yorkshire when it dawned on him he’d be playing Europa League football again.
The dejected Frenchman was seen with his shirt over his head and was clearly despondent at the fact that United’s season has collapsed in the last six weeks.
Pogba’s future is now certain to come under greater scrutiny with the midfielder believed to be keen on a move to Real Madrid. Solskjaer has refused to guarantee that Pogba will not be sold but the Norwegian does want to keep the midfielder.
