VIDEO OF THE WEEK: The Brilliance of Paul Pogba

The hysteria surrounding Paul Pogba seemingly gains interminable momentum week on week. Recent agent comments implicitly hinting at a future away from Serie A, the terms of his renegade-like departure from Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United and his unnerving super-skill make him the hottest talent in world football.

Pogba has scored a plethora of outstanding goals in his short career, and this one versus Udinese isn’t necessarily his finest. More, the angle from this fan’s perspective wonderfully portrays the technique and projection of the Frenchman’s shot, something that a conventional TV camera can never truly do justice too.

If you pause the video at around 22 seconds in, you’ll see that the projection of the initial shot is heading about 10 feet left of the goalframe and about 3 feet over. Sublime technique, blend and panache avert it from it’s purported destination. Superb.
