Paul Pogba’s penalty run-up wasn’t even the funniest thing about his first-half

Graeme Souness is licking his lips as we speak

It’s just another day in the life of Paul Pogba.

It wouldn’t be a Man United game if the spotlight wasn’t shining relentlessly on Pogba for 90 minutes.

The Frenchman put in a first-half performance against Everton which is unsurprisingly polarising opinion.

The enigmatic character might have opened the scoring for United, tapping home the rebound from his saved penalty, but did you see that run-up?

Bizarrely enough, that Simone Zaza impression wasn’t even the most hilarious thing about his first 45 against Marco Silva’s side.

Just three minutes into the clash, Pogba got everyone talking after he gave us one of the moments of the season so far.

You can almost picture the wry smile Graeme Souness produced after this.

I suppose you can say Pogba made amends by scoring United’s opener, albeit one of the easiest goals he’ll get all season.

However this was Sunday League standard from a £100million player.
