Paul Pogba made some fans mad after he jokingly said he wants some Manchester City players to get injured to allow other teams to catch up with them.
Paul Pogba to BBC Football Focus: "Some day I hope City are going to slip and I hope, and I know that it’s bad to say things like that, but I hope for us that some very important players get injured."

Right after his comments, Pogba got red-carded after a stamp at Arsenal and ruled him out of the top-of-the-table clash.
Fans said, it was instant karma and that he received what he got.

Pep Guardiola, on the other hand, responded with sadness as the midfielder would not be able to play against them.
“Hopefully no one will have injuries,” he said.
“I would like Paul to [be able to] play against us because I like to face team with the best players as possible to see if we are able to beat them.
“I am sure it is an expression and he doesn’t want our players to get injured.”
