Sports fans often have intense emotions for the teams and players they support. Sometimes, this passion can become a double-edged sword. French soccer player Paul Pogba is currently experiencing what many athletes go through. Pogba faced criticism on social media for things that were beyond his control.
He shared pictures of his winter holiday with his followers and family on Instagram, but instead of receiving positive feedback, he faced a wave of negativity. Even a simple selfie in front of snow mountains led to criticism and accusations of him not performing well during the World Cup due to injury.
The wound of France’s loss to Argentina in the recent World Cup is still fresh for many French soccer fans. They believe that with an additional star or veteran presence, their team could have won the tournament. As Pogba posted his selfie, fans expressed their impatience and questioned his commitment, saying things like, “Go train, our patience is running out,” or “When will you stop taking your salary without performing?”
Pogba suffered an ACL tear during pre-season training, which ruled him out of the World Cup. Despite not playing this season, he aims to return to football by the end of January. While Pogba’s flamboyant style may have raised some eyebrows in the past, his work ethic and productivity on the field are unquestionable.
