Speaking about Paul Pogba’s current situation at Man United with his contract close to expiring, Patrice Evra told FourFourTwo: “It hurts me when people criticize Paul, I have to say because it hurts when people criticize your brother.
“We still have a lot of talks together and I give him a lot of support. He’s such a great player — and maybe some people can’t understand why he can play so well with France for the national team and not as well for Manchester United.
“He needs to fix that, give more love to the fans, then they have to give more love to him in return. I think some of the old legends can sometimes go in too personal on him, which I don’t like. He’s a great guy.”
Paul Pogba is yet to confirm any desire to sign a new deal with the Red Devils and will be able to sign a pre-contract with other clubs in January.
Mino Raiola has confirmed that United have tabled a new contract offer to the Frenchman, but insisted that he’ll see ‘what’s best for him’ before making a decision on his future.
