I miss football, Paul Pogba admits

Manchester United superstar Paul Pogba seems to be relishing his return to action after being away for so many months due to injury and the lockdown, as he has revealed he’s delighted to be back on the pitch again.

The Frenchman recently had a chat with the club’s official website to reflect on life during injury and his return, and had so much to say.

“Just being back training, touching the ball and doing what I love is amazing; I missed it so much,” he said.

“You realise when you’re out for a long time how much you really enjoy playing football and how much you love it. So obviously I’m really, really happy and so blessed to be back and be fully fit now, and I’m enjoying being back with the team.

“I feel great, I feel much, much better now. I’ve been training well and they [the club] have been looking after me very well. I’ve been doing some extra work and treatment on my ankle and the rest of my body. And my team-mates as well, they’ve helped me to come back and feel confident. It’s like I never left, the guys still trust in me and always believe in me and that’s helped me a lot as well.

He continued, “You can tell that the team is improving a lot. We play more as a team than we did before, we enjoy it even more, we defend together, we attack together, and this team is stronger as well. The players who are on the bench or who don’t play every time, when they come on they help the team so the mentality is good and is right. All this together has put us where we are today.”

Pogba is expected to star for Man United as we face Aston Villa later tonight, and will hope to help us extend our unbeaten run to 17 games, and perhaps, set a new record for consecutive premier league wins by three goals or more.
