Paul Pogba claims his first season back at Manchester United was complicated but improved as he settled in following his move from Juventus last summer.
He was at Juventus for four seasons and moved back to Old Trafford in a deal which made him the world’s most expensive footballer, valued at around £89.3 million.
The Frenchman scored nine goals in 51 games, including one in the Europa League final against Ajax which helped the side back into the Champions League, however, he’s often been unfairly criticised on several occasions.
Speaking about his year, Pogba believes he gave a positive contribution even though he had a difficult start.
“My first season back here in Manchester was good, but quite complicated,” he said. “I had to adapt to the English football. I didn’t really have a pre-season, so I had to jump straight in.
“But the more I trained the better it got. With the other players, I felt at ease from the first moment on. It’s true that the results weren’t as positive as we’d wished, but we reached our goals. All in all, it was a good season for us.”
Pogba has dominated the midfield play and orchestrated games throughout the season and there’s no doubt he has the ability to become a top player.
He’s world-class at the age of 24 and it’s scary to think about how good he can go on to become with some guidance at Old Trafford.
