“It’s bullshit of his, bullshit”: Gary Neville slaps Paul Pogba for pretending to get hit in the face when he handballed Declan Rice’s free kick to allow a penalty in the crunch clash of Manchester United against West Ham
- Manchester United fell 1-0 behind West Ham on the stroke of half-time
- Paul Pogba gave away a penalty after a ridiculous handball from a free kick
- The 27-year-old received criticism from United legends Gary Neville and Paul Pogba
Manchester United’s top four hopes halted at half-time from their Premier League clash with West Ham.
The Red Devils only need one point to top Leicester in the fourth head of the last game of the season – which is off to the Foxes.
However, the chances of this decreased on Wednesday after a delay on West Ham.
Paul Pogba was slammed by Gary Neville after a penalty kick against West Ham
The Hammers were awarded a free kick in the first half of injury time when Timothy Fosu-Mensah kicked Michail Antonio 30 meters from the goal.
From the resulting set, Declan Rice shot an attempt toward the goal that struck Paul Pogba.
At first it seemed that he hit him in the face – so with the midfielder it initiated with a bit of theatrical.
However, VAR showed that it hit the 27-year-old clearly and inexplicably – with Pogba about 10 meters away from where the free-kick initially took place.
United legend Gary Neville was on the co-commentary for the match and was devastating for Pogba. About Sky Sports, he said, “It’s nonsense of him, nonsense … it’s embarrassing.”
As a result, a penalty was awarded to West Ham – who killed Antonio to lead David Moyes’ squad 1-0 at half-time.
Fellow United legend Patrice Evra was also critical of his former French teammate in Pogba.
All United fans would love to see Paul bleed. He knows what to do in the second half. As soon as I saw Paul standing up without blood, I knew he was using his hands.
“People know he made a big mistake. All United fans would love to see Paul bleed even if the ball broke his nose. It is difficult to forgive Paul for this. He knows what to do in the second half.
“As soon as I saw Paul get up and his face was so clean with no blood, I knew he was using his face. He made a big mistake. Paul knows and we have VAR, today the one in VAR is not Stevie Wonder, that’s why he gave the penalty. ‘
