Paul Pogba Won Man Of The Match, But Zlatan Decided To Keep The Award For Himself
Get the best email in soccer.
On Wednesday, Manchester United beat Crystal Palace 2-1. The first Manchester United goal was scored by Paul Pogba and assisted by Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The second goal was scored by Zlatan Ibrahimovic and assisted by Paul Pogba.
There can only be one Man of the Match, so who was it to go to?
Well, the people who decide such things said it should go to Pogba (likely because Zlatan's assist may or may not have hit his arm), but Zlatan overruled them and said it should go to Zlatan.

(extremely Somali pirate in the movie Captain Phillips voice) Look at me. Look at me. I'm Man of the Match now.
Maybe they can share it? Really, Zlatan should give Pogba the Man of the Match trophy and be content with his giant shirtless Zlatan statue.
