Paul Pogba: 'Playing for France builds my confidence to help Manchester United'

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba said playing for France helps him build his ‘energy and confidence’.

The midfielder also conceded that he’s ‘sad’ after knowing that Man United will go trophyless this season.

After losing 1-0 at home to Atletico Madrid last two weeks in the Champions League, it became certain Manchester United end yet another season without a trophy, enduring this for the last five years.

Paul Pogba will become a free agent at the end of the season and has attracted interest from the likes of PSG, Juventus and Real Madrid.

The France international has said he would love to win trophies whether it’s at Old Trafford or elsewhere.

Before heading into the international break, the 29-year-old struggled with his fitness, putting out below par performances against Watford and Atletico Madrid.

But has assured Manchester United fans that playing for France would help him regain his confidence.

“Totally [playing for France is a breath of fresh air]. That’s the truth,” said Paul Pogba.

“There were difficult moments at Manchester United and I needed this break to regain my energy and confidence.

“Sometimes when I wasn’t playing or the results weren’t good, coming here, it gives a boost, a breath of air that also helps me to come back well to my club.

“The season is not over yet, but almost because we don’t have any more titles to play for.

“I want to win titles, to play for something and this year and the last few years we haven’t won a title. It’s sad.”
