Those are the thoughts of former Liverpool star Robbie Fowler.
Pogba has seen his form nosedive over the past few weeks for Manchester United, and after being substituted in the Premier League defeats away to Tottenham and Newcastle, he was relegated to the bench for the league win over Huddersfield.
Reports emerged last week that the 24-year-old regretted joining United and has set his sights on signing for Real Madrid.
Jose Mourinho was quick to diffuse such claims, insisting they were “lies”. Pogba missed the 2-0 FA Cup win over Huddersfield yesterday due to illness.
And Fowler thinks that besides the highly competitive nature of the Premier League, Pogba is suffering a little bit, because his pride has been dented.
“My guess is he’s suffering a bit because of the level of the Premier League,” Fowler wrote in his column for the Daily Mirror.
“In Italy, he was able to play in a system which gave him complete freedom.
“In England teams are more organised. There is not the freedom to do what you like, keep running forward and leave big gaps in midfield.
“But the problem could be just as much to do with Pogba’s pride as anything.
“But if he wasn’t upset when he is not playing well – when the system isn’t working for him – what would they think of that?
“There’d be an outcry because the critics would say he’s just picking up the cash and having a laugh.
“He isn’t doing that. He’s a top player who hurts when he doesn’t look like one.
“And he won’t put up with that for long.”
