“He doesn’t score many goals!” Pogba hits out at claim Kante has done more for a fraction of his price

Date Posted,April 16, 2017

Paul Pogba has hit out at claims N’Golo Kante has done much more for Chelsea for a fraction of his staggering £90million price tag.

The Manchester United midfielder has received criticism at times this season, particularly for his performances in big games.

While Kante, who Chelsea signed from Leicester City for £30million at the start of the season, has been hailed from every area of the globe.

And while Pogba doesn’t disagree his fellow countryman should receive praise, he suggested that he gets judged for more than Kante.

“He doesn’t score many goals, does he? But we don’t speak about this, we speak about what he does on the pitch,” said Pogba.

“He gets the ball, he passes the ball, he makes the game and defends and everything, and I try to do this.

“I do this in my team, in my club, I score more goals than Kante, but they still say like ‘Kante does this and that,’ but I score more goals.

“If you want to speak about scoring goals, then you should judge every midfielder the same way then.

“But they only speak about the transfer, the money. The transfer is done so we shouldn’t talk about this anymore.”

Chelsea will be determined to extend their lead over Spurs, who won convincingly yesterday, to seven points.

While the Red Devils will be looking to leapfrog Everton, who have played three more games than them, in fifth.
