BFW Verbal Spat Club: Bayern Munich’s Benjamin Pavard and Manchester United’s Paul Pogba have a beef

It sounds like Benjamin Pavard and Paul Pogba have had enough of each other.

Nothing gets the ol’ juices flowing around these parts like a good fight and it sounds like Bayern Munich’s Benjamin Pavard and Manchester United’s Paul Pogba are about ready to knuckle up per The Daily Star:

Paul Pogba was seen fuming at his France teammate, Benjamin Pavard, during their UEFA Nations League final win over Spain on Sunday night. France manager Didier Deschamps was forced to try and calm the situation as Pogba became increasingly irate with the Bayern Munich defender. Pogba had been heavily pressed on the edge of his own area with limited support from the team-mates around him which also included Jules Kounde.

He was ultimately able to draw a foul from the Spanish forward pressing him but quickly noticed Pavard running into position and let his feelings be known to the 25-year-old. This was not the first time Pogba and Pavard have feuded on the pitch while representing their country following a similar incident at the Euros. During their round of 16 exit to Switzerland in the summer, Pogba was reportedly told by Raphael Varane that Pavard had said he does not “defend enough.”

If The Wire’s De’Londa Brice was around, she would certainly have broken out her signature term of “acting a b***h” at Varane for spreading gossip, but I digress (a Real Madrid player as a villain ... SHOCKING).

Anyway, Pogba was reportedly irate with Pavard for that statement and “confronted Pavard on the pitch, with Pavard allegedly insulting Pogba during their heated discussion.”

The kicker of the whole story is this comment by some random fan on social media who was responding to Pogba’s critique of Pavard:

However, on this occasion, fans were quick to jump to Pogba’s defence on social media, with one fan tweeting: “Can’t blame him, Pavard is awful.”

But was it random? It sure sounds like something one of BFW’s own notorious staffers would say:

Anyway, how should Pavard and Pogba resolve this?
