|One of the more unique runs up to a penalty kick that I’ve ever seen. Juventus star Paul Pogba’s got kinda of a crazy way of running up to take a penalty kick. And you have to say it’s not really a run up but a jogging in place as he slowly makes his way towards the penalty spot to strike the ball. I’m sure this has to throw off the goalkeeper….
Isn’t there a time limit in terms of how fast you have to take the penalty kick? Not sure about that but thankfully Pogba makes the shot. Imagine if he’d missed the penalty after all this…take a look.
Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba says he may change his penalty routine after his stuttered run-up almost cost him against Everton, leading to criticism from the Sky Sports pundits.
United were awarded a spot-kick in the 26th minute of the 2-1 victory at Old Trafford after Idrissa Gueye was adjudged to have fouled Anthony Martial, with Pogba stepping up to the spot.
It was another strange run-up from the Frenchman, taking his time to get to the ball as he stuttered along – which he has done previously – and although his effort was initially saved by Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, Pogba did slot home the rebound.
