Video: Paul Pogba's gesture sparks backlash from Old Trafford crowd after Norwich


 

Footage highlighting the latest development in the increasingly strained relationship between Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba and the club's supporters has come to the fore on Saturday evening.

The clip in question stems from the aftermath of the Red Devils' Premier League meeting with Norwich City.

Pogba, for his part, was afforded a start in the clash, enjoying a solid if unspectacular outing on his way to being hauled off for Marcus Rashford fifteen minutes from time.

In making his way off the pitch, the Frenchman was then targeted by sections of the home crowd, who opted to drown out the cheers of others courtesy of audible booing.

And such animosity continued on the back of the final whistle at Old Trafford.

As Pogba, alongside his teammates, headed back towards the pitch-side tunnel, the 29-year-old, perhaps unwisely, cupped his hear in the direction of Manchester United's supporters.

And this act was evidently not at all appreciated by those in attendance at the clash, who swiftly responded by means of fresh jeers, whistles and boos:

CR7 at the treble

Turning attentions towards the action itself on the red half of Manchester this afternoon, United, of course, ultimately did enough to return to winning ways.

Despite looking less than impressive across lengthy spells throughout proceedings, the brilliance of Cristiano Ronaldo proved the difference.

The Portuguese superstar, heavily criticised owing to a spell of lacklustre form of late, exploded back into life against Norwich on his way to all three goals in a 3-2 triumph.

Ralf Rangnick's side, in turn, have climbed back into 5th in the Premier League table, after both Arsenal and Tottenham fell to shock defeats earlier in the day.
