The 27-year-old’s agent, Mino Raiola, confirmed earlier this week that the Frenchman’s time at Old Trafford is ‘over’ and that he wanted to exit the club in the January transfer window.
Pogba was left out of the starting XI to face RB Leipzig just 24 hours after Raiola’s comments but he was a surprise starter in the draw against Manchester City, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer claiming after the match that the Frenchman’s focus was on the club.
The France international took five days to address Raiola’s comments but he did so on Saturday with a pointed post on Instagram, where the midfielder claimed he’s ‘1000%’ committed to the club.
United covered Pogba’s message on their website and it drew reaction from a host of team-mates on Instagram, including Fernandes.
Part of Pogba’s reported unhappiness at the club is that he wants to play in an advanced role but that’s currently occupied by Fernandes, who has been a revelation since his arrival from Sporting Lisbon.
Nevertheless, it appears that the Portuguese harbours no ill feeling towards Pogba after Raiola’s statement and his comment on the Frenchman’s post will be music to the ears of United supporters.
Fernandes simply posted two ‘fist bump’ emojis and his post was liked by over 18,000 people.
