Does Paul Pogba’s increased social media activity mean change of heart?

It is without question that United’s mercurial midfielder has looked for a second Old Trafford exit in recent seasons. However, Paul Pogba has looked much happier in recent weeks.

Pogba himself has blown very hot and cold at times appearing anonymous and at times carrying the side.

In 2018/19 he was amongst the very best in the Premier League and gained the appropriate recognition when he was voted into the Premier League Team of the Season.

Injuries have limited him to just 13 appearances, according to WhoScored, for club and country in the 2019/20 season. Before the lockdown break, it was widely reported he would be heading elsewhere. The Guardian were one of many to report that Pogba would be looking for an Old Trafford exit.

Since the return of football, however, he has looked rejuvenated both off the pitch and on it.

United are unbeaten since the return of football after lockdown with a draw away to Tottenham being the only blemish on their record.

A huge part of this has been the formidable midfield trio of Pogo, Bruno Fernandes and Nemanja Matic.

As a result of this upturn in form Pogba can visibly be seen to be enjoying life at United again.

How has his attitude changed?

As reported by The Express, Pogba was filmed in great spirits dancing in the United dressing room with Daniel James whilst being filmed by fan favourite loan signing, Odion Ighalo.

Recently Pogba also posted a picture from United’s FA Cup triumph over Norwich, Here he had de-colourised the whole photo, aside from the red of the United home shirt. (Source:

This drew an immediate comparison to the summer before Pogba rejoined United. In a cryptic Instagram post, Pogba de-colourised an entire post from his holiday except for his red shoes and cap.

Whilst dancing around the dressing room and an increased social media activity is no guarantee he will extend his stay, the fact that Paul Pogba is thoroughly enjoying being a Manchester United player for possibly the first time since he returned can only be seen as a huge positive.
