Liverpool great Barnes: Pogba shows better attitude with France than Man Utd

Liverpool great John Barnes says Paul Pogba shows a better attitude playing for France than Manchester United.

Barnes, speaking to BonusCodeBets, believes Pogba is more committed when wearing the Les Bleus shirt.

He said, “Paul Pogba has always played better for France than for Manchester United, because he has a different attitude when he plays for his country.

“He is much more respectful of the French national team and his team-mates, in terms of not seeing himself as the superstar, the most important person. Whereas when he plays for Manchester United, there are times when he wants to dominate the whole situation, and he doesn't do that for France.

“That's been the case for a few years, including when they won the World Cup in 2018. He puts in a much better, much more professional, committed, determined, humble performance for France.

“For United, maybe because of his price tag and because he feels like a superstar because he cost £90million, he tries too hard to do special things."
