Paul Pogba ‘not satisfied’ with second Man Utd stint and discusses future elsewhere

The Red Devils midfielder has opened up about his second stint at the club as well as potential future elsewhere.

Paul Pogba has admitted his second stint with Manchester United has ‘not satisfied’ him, with the club winning two trophies since his return.

The midfielder rejoined the Red Devils from Juventus for £89m in 2016 but is likely to leave Old Trafford at the end of the season due to his contract expiring.

United’s no.6 has now expressed his dissatisfaction during his second tenure in Manchester, claiming the club’s campaign is now ‘dead’.

“You have to be honest, the last five seasons have not satisfied me – really not at all,” Pogba told La Figaro.

“This year it is dead, we won’t win anything. Whether it is with Manchester United or at another club, I want to win trophies.”

The Red Devils can still finish in the top four of the Premier League this season, but currently sit sixth in the table with nine games remaining.

Pogba, who is currently on international duty with France, admitted he is unsure what his role is within United’s squad.

“It’s simple with France, I play in my position – I know my role and I feel the confidence of the coach and the players,” he said.

“It’s normal to feel a difference at Manchester United because it’s hard to be consistent when you often have a change to your position, or the team system, or your partners.

“I get along very well with [France boss Didier Deschamps], he gave me a role that I know, but at Manchester United do I really have a role? I ask the question but I don’t have an answer.”

As previously mentioned, his contract at Old Trafford expires in the summer with the midfielder’s association with the Red Devils likely to come to an end.

When asked whether he’d like to play alongside France teammate Kylian Mbappe at club level, Pogba said: “Why not? It’s always good to play with team-mates in the France team and in the club.”

Over two stints with United, Pogba has made 229 appearances, netting 29 times and assisting his teammates on 51 occasions.
