Pogba should count his blessings

How sad to read that Paul Pogba, Manchester United’s midfielder, is unhappy with his football club and wants to leave.

When I look at the great team of Busby Babes in 1957/58, prior to the Munich Air Disaster, Manchester United players were only paid GBP20 per week. Even in the mid-60s, players such as Best, Charlton and Law only earned GBP100 per week.

Pogba’s current weekly salary is approximately six times the average yearly salary of people living in the United Kingdom! With a person with so much privilege, Pogba and his fellow football players should learn to be more appreciative of their good fortunes instead of allowing greed to rule their lives.
