Manchester United’s unbeaten run under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ended on Tuesday night following their 2-0 loss to Paris Saint-Germain in a Champions League round of sixteen clash at Old Trafford.
Two second half goals from Kylian Mbappe and Presnel Kimpembe secured a win for the French Ligue 1 giants.
Speaking as an analyst on SuperSport, former Nigeria international and ex-Everton defender Joseph Yobo believes United were taken apart by the French champions because their star player Paul Pogba was dominated in midfield by Marquinhos and Marco Verratti.
”Like we said, Pogba is a pivotal player for Manchester United. If you let him control the game, he can cause you a lot of trouble.
”Credit to Marquinhos and Verratti, they did a brilliant job.
”I think the game was mostly won in the middle and that’s what gave PSG the opportunity to be able to go on the counter attack and put those passes together.”
Paul Pogba will miss the second leg clash at the Parc des Princes (Paris) on March 6; he was shown a red card in the 89th minute after a reckless challenge on Dani Alves.
