Paul Pogba is “not bitter” about the constant media criticism he is subjected to.
Pogba has become one of the Premier League footballers most regularly reported on since re-joining Manchester United in 2016.
The scrutiny he faces also carries over into his duties on the international front.
The French media are particularly critical and have called for his removal from the first team numerous times.
Real Madrid center-half and France teammate Raphael Varane has called for the press to “be more positive”.
“There’s a lot of negativity in the press, that’s the reality. We are always trying to be positive,” he said.
“We look for what went well, and you like to talk more about what went wrong, so I think he was talking about that.
“But he’s not bitter, he stays positive always. If you could be more positive, it would be cool.”
