Pogba Hits Back At Man Utd Critics
Paul Pogba Hits Back At Manchester United Critics
Premier League giants Manchester United had their fair share of critics last season, but France superstar Paul Pogba has a special message for them.
Despite finishing in sixth position in the English top flight, the Red Devils managed to lift three trophies in 2016/17 – the UEFA Europa League, the EFL Cup and the Community Shield.
The world's most expensive player came in for some criticism of his own during the campaign, but he has now dismissed all negative talk from outside the club, saying all he and his teammates are remembering are the trophies they have won.
"I accept that we didn't play well – we didn't do this, we didn't do that," Pogba said in an interview with Esquire magazine.
"I know what we did – we won three trophies. That's all I know.
"And that's all that matters. Because you can be the best team in the world, you can play great football and you win zero trophies. And who remembers them? No one. Right?"
The 24-year-old made 51 appearances for the Old Trafford club last season, scoring nine goals and assisting six further strikes in all competitions.
