Paul Pogba v Kevin Strootman
Paul Pogba and Kevin Strootman took each other on in the centre of midfield during the World Cup qualifier won by France in Holland last night.
The pair would have played against each other previously, with Juventus and Roma respectively.
But, Strootman has struggled with injuries over much of the past few seasons whilst Pogba has emerged as one of the finest midfielders on the planet, and now the most expensive player as well.
“Shut the f*** up”
Strootman and Holland had a fairly chastening evening at home as they once again looked a shadow of the great Oranje sides of the past.
And, at one stage, Strootman’s anger boiled over with the match winner Paul Pogba.
The Manchester United midfielder simply replied “shut the f*** up” which fans of the Premier League giants very much enjoyed.
Considering Strootman also speaks perfect English, it must have made sense for Pogba to answer the Dutchman back in this manner.
But, also shows how Pogba has a heavy streak of Manchester in him as well!

Strootman getting tired of being toyed with by Pogba this evening. I suppose that's understandable.

I'm no lipreading expert but does Pogba tell Strootman to "just shut the f*** up"? Those Mancunian lessons going down well! :-) pic.twitter.com/MWbBJhpgtC

If Strootman wants an autograph from Pogba, all he has to do is ask.
