Manchester United’s Paul Pogba is generally known for his playful and upbeat attitude off the pitch. However, on the field of play, Pogba can frequently be seen to have a petulant demeanour when things are not going his way.

Speaking about the Manchester United star, Pogba’s international teammate, Kurt Zouma, explained how the midfielder’s insanely competitive nature is the force that drives him and causes him to react in such a negative manner when he is facing a loss.

Speaking to Goal, the Chelsea loanee hilariously explained how the former Juventus star can lose his cool over the smallest of games with Zouma recently receiving a ban from Pogba’s house over a game of Uno.

“[Pogba] doesn’t like to lose when we play card games, like Uno, he doesn’t like to lose.’

“He is the same guy as before, he hasn’t changed. The other day, I went to his house and beat him. He was so, so, so angry. He didn’t want me to come anymore.

He told me: ‘Don’t come anymore to my house.’ I said ‘My friend, please, it’s only Uno we’re talking about.’”
