Paul Pogba cups hand to ear after being booed by own fans as Man Utd star breaks silence after Norwich win

PAUL POGBA has broken his silence after being booed off by a section of Man Utd fans in yesterday's game against Norwich.

The France World Cup winner was a target for some of the crowd, when he was on the end of some negative chants as he trundled off the pitch when he was subbed off.

As he walked towards the tunnel, Pogba was spotted cupping his ear towards supporters who reportedly were singing "f*** off Pogba" as Marcus Rashford came off the bench.

The midfielder, 29, has since taken to Instagram to share a picture showing him waving that he captioned:"Very important win for all of us today!"

The Red Devils laboured to a 3-2 win over Norwich City on Saturday, thanks to a Cristiano Ronaldo hat-trick.

After the final whistle, manager Ralf Rangnick was asked about the boos directed towards Pogba.

The German tactician said."The fans are amazing and I can fully understand them being frustrated and disappointed but I don't think it makes any sense to take on any individual person or player.

"It is a collective responsibility so I will always defend and protect my players. I didn't see what he did at the end of the game but I heard bout it.

"It was his reaction to the chanting during the game. As I said, I can understand the fans in a way but I don't think it makes sense to take on one player.

"I actually thought Paul did quite well in possession during the game. It wasn't his best position of No 8 but we had no Fred or Scotty (McTominay) so I had to make a choice."

Pogba's future is up in the air – with his current deal expiring this summer and no new deal agreed.

It was reported that the club offered the playmaker a staggering £500,000-per-week contract, as Red Devils chiefs scramble to keep hold of their asset.

However, that is said to have riled Pogba's team-mates, who say he "isn't worthy" of such a pay rise.

He is currently of interest to Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid and former club Juventus – with the Ligue 1 giants seen as favourites to sign him.
