Pogba Makes Remarks After Opening Day Win
Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba says there is always a question mark against him at the club.
The France international has been the subject of speculation over his future this summer – speculation he helped to fuel – with reports linking him with both Real Madrid and Juventus. No concrete bids arrived at Old Trafford from any club and despite reports over the weekend linking him with a move back to Juve he looks more likely to spend this season with United.
Pogba provided two assists as United began their Premier League campaign with an emphatic 4-0 victory over Chelsea. But speaking to French radio station RMC after the match he claimed people will always have their doubts about him.
“I’m always good when I am playing football, I do what I love, it’s my job, I’ll give my best every time I’m on the pitch,” he said.
“Only time will tell but I remain on this question mark, but as I said, I’m in Manchester, I’m having fun with my teammates, I always want to win my matches and acquit myself thoroughly.”
Meanwhile, former Manchester United full-back Phil Neville insists that Pogba would prove to be almost impossible to replace if he did leave the club.
“With the pace they have when they attack, whether it be in wide areas or centrally, United are perfectly set up to be a counter-attacking team,” Neville told the BBC.
“As part of that, Pogba will play a huge part in any success they have this season – people keep saying United should sell him but for me it is hard to imagine this United side without him in it.
“He would leave a hole the size of the Channel Tunnel if he left, because I do not see another midfielder in the Premier League that can play the pass he did for United’s third goal, when he set up Marcus Rashford.”
