When the African athlete is great, the European scrutiny is at its height. The European wants the African to conform for him in order that the world can acknowledge that nothing is whole without Europe’s tutelage; that without Europeans, nothing can be truly great. Incredible, these people from Europe and their Miracles! ~ Signor Boto.
LONDON — There’s a prevailing idea in England, where Paul Pogba plies his trade as a footballer, that unless Pogba can stop his tricks, he cannot truly become a great footballer; that Pogba can only remain a great talent. Every moron who’s ever been on a team that won an English Federation Cup feels the need to chime in with his own lessons about what Pogba must do in order to become great. None of these players have ever gotten to a World Cup final, let alone win one. Pogba has! Why the scrutiny?
Pogba is African and he needs every European tutelage in order that he can become truly great. This is the paralogism that drives the frenzy, although its pervasiveness is lost on the morons who have football lessons for the World Cup winner in Pogba. The idea that Pogba needs, or even needed discipline, or should accept more discipline — whatever that is — is only lost on English fans and their catamite, Jose Mourinho (Pogba’s former coach).
Mourinho was a good coach at Chelsea, Inter Milan and Real Madrid. His successes nonetheless, especially after Porto depended on great players, notably: Drogba, Ibahimovic, Essien, Ronaldo, etc.
Paul Pogba is a great player. A phenomenal man. A world cup winner. An European cup winner. An Europa Cup winner. Many Italian Cup winner! He is the very definition of a proven footballer. Pogba defines the term professional footballer. He schools others, not the other way around!
Moaning-hoe, speaking for the first time after being fired from Manchester Utd, on BeIN Sports, is silly to even insinuate, if even in the slightest terms, that Pogba is not a professional. Just because Mourinho failed as a coach when he clearly had the best player in the world, on his team, doesn’t mean it is Pogba’s fault that he is now a stupid, stubborn, arrogant, spoiled coach, now turned soccer pundit. Good riddance.
Great players who played the game like Ole Gunnar Solskjær, the interim Man Utd coach, understand pure geniuses like Pogba. Mourinho, on the other hand, was a bad footballer — no matter how much he tried — although he grew up under the tutelage of his father, who was a football manager.
BeIN Sports is a good place for the likes of Mourinho. I adore arrogant pundits. And Mourinho is undoubtedly one arrogant man from start. Stubborn and arrogant pundits make the game a lot more fan than those who drone on in television (like Wolf Blitzer of the Caucasian News Network, CNN).
But the world have had it with this spoiled brat as a manager of any football team; Mourinho’s rise to football management is that his own father was a coach who knew the great coach, Van Gaal, under whom Mourinho became an apprentice at Barcelona.
Good riddance! Again, the idea that Pogba needs anyone’s discipline, or tutelage, or that he is not a professional, is lost only on haters; pure haters of the beautiful game. Let me remind those English fans that Pogba is a grown-ass man. He is not a boy! He knows how to put food on his family’s table better than 99 percent of English men. What idiots, really!
Why do I dislike Mourinho’s Comments? Am I a Manchester United fan?
Far from it. I actually liked Jose Mourinho. But recently he’s been picking on Paul Pogba for his failure in management. It is a bit rich of him to think his failure at Man Utd was due to one player’s supposed indiscipline (BeIN Sports). Or worse, it is a bit disingenuous of Moaning-hoe to think that Pogba needs to be built into something else. Into something like what – N’Golo Kante?
Oh no! Even N’Golo Kante, another world cup winner is also being re-built in the form of Paul Pogba. Kante is now an attacking midfielder at Chelsea Football Club after three years in the English Premiership, where he won the league with two different clubs back-to-back as a defensive midfielder. Kante too cannot escape the re-moulding hands of that omnipresent European hand. No matter that you are more talented, and have achieved far more than that hand!
Worse, European hands like Moaning-hoe’s proceed to use the most implicit racist terms to address Pogba when their help is refused. Terms like “unprofessional,” “boy,” “need to grow up,” “need discipline,” and such are historically and contextually notorious words/terms used to infantilize African men in Sports. Mourinho uses and sells all of those terms knowing full well that he feeds the racist BBC, ESPN, NBCSports, and their grandchildren journalists, the diet they need to paint Pogba as some child needing tutelage, needing the direction of white European men. Pogba is not a child!
Again, I was a Mourinho fan, but he’s not oblivious to the baiting he has engaged in thus far. Which should worry all his fans. That he keeps at it, infuriates me. First, and a correction, he needs to obtain some needed perspective. Second, and last, Pogba is a fine footballer, the current best in the world, and Mourinho is a failed coach. Period.
