Paul Pogba has revealed that the Manchester United squad’s mental strength is growing and improving throughout the season.
The French midfielder scored twice for Man United in a comfortable 3-0 victory against Swiss champions Young Boys. The club’s opening UEFA Champions League fixture was an important one to win, especially given Jose Mourinho’s men have been handed a tough group including Serie A champions Juventus and Valencia.
United have had a mixed start to the season, having suffered two consecutive defeats in the Premier League in August. Since then, Mourinho has seen his side win three successive games, all away from home.
Pogba has put in a few solid displays in a row, and he captained United to victory against Young Boys.
“Obviously when you win you are happier, mentally we are stronger we get better, we change the team but even the players who come in feel already like they are in the team, and that’s all we need,” Pogba told Sky Sports.
“It’s a very important win because it was the first game in the Champions League, we needed to start well and we did. We had the result we wanted, maybe the performance should be better, but we have the result and three points.
“So I’m very happy to score and be decisive in the win and for the performance of the team. If I can do it, try to help the team as much as possible, if I can score and assist that is great.”
United fans are split over Pogba. Everyone can recognise his incredible talent and ability.
However, Pogba needs to show more consistency at Old Trafford. It’s been three solid shows from Pogba in a row, and hopefully he can build on that in the same way the whole United squad‘s mental strength is building with each victory.
