Pogba: I’ll be United great

Published Add your comment

Manchester United starlet Paul Pogba has spoken of his desire to make it at Old Trafford.


Sir Alex Ferguson has earmarked the young French midfielder for a bright future, but there has been in doubt in recent weeks over whether it will be at Manchester United.


Manchester City, Arsenal and Inter have all been mooted as destinations if he does not renew his Red Devils contract, but Pogba is ignoring the speculation.


“It's very good [here], I'm getting in the first team and I enjoy it a lot. I have to carry on and try to play more games,” he told MUTV.


The former Le Havre youngster has been relishing his time at Old Trafford and spoke fondly of his few appearances for the club.


Pogba is not content to rest on his laurels, however, and voiced a desire to really push on at United and claim a regular first team berth.


“[My debut at] Leeds was a great feeling. I played away, in a derby as well, and came on for Ryan Giggs.


“I thought: 'Okay, now is a good chance to prove myself and to show them what I can do'. We won that game and it was a very good feeling.


“I told myself I've just tasted it, now I want to eat it - I want all the cake now! I want to play, work hard and do my best to get in the first-team squad.”


The France Under-19 international also spoke of this progress at United and set out a clear objective for his future at the club – to play.


“I think you grow up a lot at United, I came from France. I'm here and I know what I want to do,” he concluded.


“I just want to be a first-team player, a great player here and that's it. I want to play with the first team.”
