Manchester United were well-beaten by PSG at Old Trafford with goals from Presnel Kimpembe and Kylian Mbappe enough to give the Ligue 1 giants a healthy first leg lead.

Pogba toiled in the heat of the battle, resembling the player who looked so lost during the final days of Jose Mourinho's time in charge.

Manchester United fans spoke out on the tram after the game, with one suggesting he had played poorly because of the French media.

The 25-year-old helped his country win the World Cup in Russia back in the summer.

But the fan, named Matt, believes the presence of journalists from his own country may have influenced his performance.

"Pogba was terrible tonight," he said.

"Just shocking, makes you think whether he's really up for these sort of games.

"Sir Alex Ferguson sold him because he looked at Pogba and thought 'you've got talent but you haven't got the attitude.'

"Maybe it was the French lot [media] there tonight. They got in his head.

"He was trying too much at times, he wasn't keeping it simple. It was like he wanted to be a headline and put himself above the team."

Meanwhile, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer spoke out on Pogba's red card after the game.

The World Cup winner received his marching orders late on after catching Dani Alves.

And he said: ""It is a blow.

"He is trying to get his body across and Alves is clever enough to put his foot in so it hits him.

"I know Paul wants to shield the ball and it’s unlucky and it hits him on the knee."

United are still yet to win a Champions League knockout game since 2014.

That was when David Moyes ruled the roost, and Olympiakos were beaten 3-0 courtesy of a Robin van Persie hat-trick.
