Premier League preview: Sheff Utd v Man Utd
Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is being strongly linked with a move away from the club following comments from his agent Mino Raiola his time at United was over. However, he can take inspiration from Dele Alli at Tottenham to turn his career around.
Manchester United’s “unhappy” star Paul Pogba should take a leaf out of Dele Alli’s book at Tottenham in order to turn his career around.
Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola publicly stated that his man would be seeking a new club and that his time at United was over.
“I can say that it’s over for Paul Pogba at Manchester United,” Raiola said.
“Paul is unhappy at Man Utd. He isn’t performing as he’d like and as we expect. He has to move, he has to change scenery.”
Another man who has been linked with a surprise exit from their club is Tottenham’s Dele Alli.
The England international was left out in the cold by Jose Mourinho at the start of the season but seems to have managed to turn his campaign around after knuckling down.
Alli has been reintroduced by Mourinho in Spurs’ last two games and is now vying for a starting spot once again after putting in a shift off the bench against Crystal Palace and Liverpool.

That may show that if Pogba manages to work hard on the training ground and give his all on the pitch, he may start “performing” well enough for his agent not to spark speculation of a move away from United.
Meanwhile, former Spurs goalkeeper Paul Robinson has praised Alli’s for turning things around in north London
“From the outside looking in, you have to commend Dele Alli’s attitude,” he told Football Insider.
“We have not heard anything from him, there has been no, ‘I want to leave.’ Quite often you would hear if a player was unhappy with their manager and it can be quite easy to spit your dummy out but with Dele Alli we have not heard any of that.
“You have to commend him on his attitude and application. When he has played, he has played at the level you would expect him to – if not better.
“He has taken the opportunities he has been given and he has done exceptionally well when he has come on.
“Alli has kept his head down and worked hard and I think that is what the manager will have been looking from him.
“I think he will come back into the squad and come back into the team and have a big impact this season.”
