It is in the shoes of the leader of the Premier League, something that had not happened to him since 2013, that Manchester United will move on the lawn of Liverpool on Sunday. A much awaited clash between the two most famous rivals in England in which Paul Pogba should participate. The French midfielder has regained a starting position and he feels fulfilled again within a club he wished to leave a few months earlier. Asked by Skysports, he mentioned his current form.
” I do not know. It’s up to the manager to tell. I feel good physically and mentally. I play, and it keeps me in shape. (…) Obviously, the team is helping me. She trusts me. I just have to focus on myself on the pitch, no matter where I sit, I give my best ”, he explained. “I hate being on the bench, I don’t like it. I am a winner, I want to play, I want to play soccer, help my team. And when I’m on the bench and don’t come in, I feel bad. “ Paul Pogba knows it, his love affair with Manchester United has become complicated over the years, between average individual performances and disappointing collective journey. Last season, he was absent for a long time due to injury and had some episodes badly, as he says.
Never spared from the critics
“It was hard, and weird. Last season was difficult for me, with injuries. Some people didn’t really know that I played with injuries, with a double fracture, trying to give it my all. Coming back with a new ankle was strange. I tried to come back as well as possible. And I had the Covid. I was not in my best shape. The team was not in its best shape ”, he recalls. But all this seems forgotten, as Manchester United, carried by Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford, join the race for the title. This does not prevent Paul Pogba from being regularly criticized. What motivates him more than anything else, to listen to him.
“I will always be myself. People have to understand it. I won’t change, it’s me. Whether you love me or not, that’s the way it’s me, Paul. Some people will like me, others won’t. I think of the people I make happy, to whom I smile. People who don’t like me, who criticize the way I play, who criticize my hairstyle, who say I’m overpriced, it doesn’t matter, that’s their opinion. Keep it there, it makes me want to work even more. So I thank them “, he says. It was not only to his detractors that he sent a message. In Liverpool too. “If you want to be the best, you have to beat the best. We want to beat the champions of England. “ See you Sunday at 5.30 p.m. on our site to follow this great shock.
