Paul Pogba was leading the music and celebrations in the team coach following Manchester United’s 2-1 win over Watford on Saturday.
The Frenchman had been criticised over the international break for a series of cryptic statements regarding his future and, for some reason, celebrating winning the World Cup with his France teammates.
He was in good spirits ahead of training on Thursday, however, and performed well in the first half at Vicarage Road.
After the game the 25-year-old, as he loves to do, was full of energy and song on the team coach, throwing a spanner at the notion that he is unhappy at Old Trafford.
Everybody expresses happiness in different ways: some people are most happy when they are gambling; others are most content simply on their own; a large majority of the public relies on drink and drugs to get a sense of mild euphoria.
For Pogba, though, his happiness derives largely from dancing, feeling the music and allowing himself to become loose. He will dance at any possible juncture: not because his attitude ‘stinks’, but because that is just how he was raised. It is natural to him.
That kind of presence in the dressing room is certainly not a bad thing.
