Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard: What actually happened between the two. The truth behind the reported spat between the Manchester United stars.
Recently videos had emerged that showed Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard involved in a disagreement. The two had to be separated by United Center Back Victor Lindelof.
Oh dear, 0:11 in, Lindelof seems to break up Pogba & Lingard. It’s all going to shit and we haven’t kicked a ball. This season could turn very sour very quick. https://t.co/UP4u6qSHpu

The clip, a part of Manchester United’s promotional video for their Australasia tour, has caught fire as social media speculated the what really happened.
Well the extended version of the clip has emerged and it has now come to light that the matter was just of two mates fooling around.
Lingard is shown immediately laughing. Pogba while still a little miffed seems to let it go. Guess in a day and age that we live in, it’s hard to digest matters like banter and Jet Lag. The worst conclusion is automatically picked immediately followed by a catchy headline as vultures in the media circle for views before news.
Former Premier League manager Phil Brown came to the defense of the French International. He claimed that Pogba was a victim of a witch hunt before adding that people had over reacted to the video.
This is a witch-hunt. I’ve watched the video and there’s nothing to it. Lindelof puts his arm around him to pull him away from a potential spat? They’re just walking through the street. The newspapers are just catching the time he’s not smiling.”
Paul Pogba is currently embroiled in a transfer saga. The Star Midfielder wants to move out of Old Trafford. He is currently being pursued by Real Madrid and Juventus. However, United are in no mood to sell. With no resolution in sight, it seems that the matter may just drag a little longer before it finally concludes, if it concludes.
