Paul Pogba looked more like a 50p footballer as he made his first touches as the world’s most expensive player this evening.
The 23-year-old, starting against Southampton on his second Manchester United debut, had a really shaky start.
An awkward attempt to control the ball with his left-foot, followed by this shanked pass gave Southampton a chance to counter-attack inside 30 seconds, although they failed to punish the Red Devils.
Not really an £89 million first touch ? https://t.co/0qQOSThFMs

According to the BBC Sport, United paid Juventus £89m – football’s biggest ever transfer fee – when they re-signed Pogba earlier this month, breaking the record set by Gareth Bale’s 2013 move from Tottenham Hotspur to Real Madrid.
