Jamie Carragher is hoping that Paul Pogba’s 30-yard goal for France is not a sign of things to come ahead of Liverpool’s clash against Manchester United next Monday.
Midfielder Pogba scored a stunning long-range effort for his national side on Monday night, as France beat Holland 1-0 in a World Cup qualifier in Amsterdam.
The world’s most expensive footballer will be hoping to line up at Anfield, when Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool meet Jose Mourinho’s United in an eagerly awaited Premier League clash.
But former Reds defender Carragher praised Pogba’s goal and performance for Didier Deschamps side ahead of the Monday night fixture.
“Pogba has scored from 30 yards,” Carragher wrote on his personal Twitter account. “[He] has been very good hope that’s not a sign for Liverpool v Manchester United.”
Pogba re-signed for United in the summer for a world-record fee of £89 million, but has struggled for form on the pitch scoring one goal in six league games this term.
Klopp’s men have started the season brightly with 16 points from seven games, two points off leaders Manchester City.
By contrast Mourinho’s United are sixth with 13 points and could go level on points with their rivals with a win at Anfield next Monday.
