Footage of a number of Manchester United fans taking aim at Paul Pogba on the back of their side’s defeat to Cardiff City this afternoon has emerged online.
Man United 0-2 Cardiff
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men welcomed the Championship-bound Bluebirds to Old Trafford earlier today, for their final Premier League outing of the season.
United headed into proceedings on the back of a dismal run of form, which culminated in a 1-1 draw at basement-dwellers Huddersfield last time out.
As such, ahead of kick-off, the Red Devils were aware that their top-4 hopes were dead in the water.
Nevertheless, though, on the back of an altogether-underwhelming campaign, the United faithful were no doubt hoping for their side to round out the season on a high with a 3-point haul this afternoon.
When all was said and done at Old Trafford, though, the shocking run being endured by the Red Devils since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s appointment on a permanent basis continued.
An abysmal showing on the part of the hosts eventually culminated in a 2-0 Cardiff win.
Nathaniel Mendez-Laing bagged both goals for the visitors, securing a historic result for Neil Warnock’s men ahead of their return to the Championship.

32 – Manchester United have finished 32 points behind the champions this season – more than they finished behind the top-flight winners when they were relegated in 1973-74 (30 points). Chasm. pic.twitter.com/bTozZLw6X3

As such, it has since come as little surprise to see a number of Man United’s stars once again singled out for criticism.
None, though, has been more widely-targeted than Paul Pogba.
And, on the back of the latest in a string of disappointing performances from the French international, footage has since emerged on social media, showcasing just how angered some of the home fans at Old Trafford were with their side’s midfield star this afternoon:
