Paul Pogba speaks to Le Figaro
Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has sat down with French daily Le Figaro this week.
Pogba is now on international duty following France’s success at the 2018 World Cup.
Pogba opened up on a range of issues in the interview including his ambitions on the pitch and fatherhood.
Man United star reveals Premier League ambitions
Much has been made in recent times about Pogba’s standing at Man United.
A few weeks ago, Sky Sports recorded an apparent disagreement between Pogba and Jose Mourinho at Man United’s training ground.
Yet, while Pogba shied away from opening up about those Man United issues to Le Figaro, he has revealed his Premier League objectives.
Pogba told the paper “I’m not satisfied, I’m still very hungry” after winning the World Cup. He then listed his current targets:
The Premier League, the Champions League, the Euros, and to be one of the best players in the world.
I want to be a mark in the history of football. I need to be even more decisive, to score more goals.
Can Man United fans take this as an indication that Pogba has no intention of leaving the club anytime soon?
Pogba on the 2018 Ballon d’Or
Pogba has also been quizzed this week about who he thinks should win the 2018 Ballon d’Or.
The Man United midfielder ruled himself out of the running. However he nominated four of his French international team mates:
Whether it’s Grizou (Griezmann), Kylian (Mbappe) or Raph’ (Varane), they deserve it much more than me.
I can not designate one. But I hope with all my heart that this is one of the three.
One of the four also because there is NG (Kante). That’s all I hope for anyway, because there are many who deserve it. I do not put myself in.
Pogba on fatherhood
The Man United star also revealed in his Le Figaro that he’s ready to become a dad:
I want to start a family, to have children. I want a large family but I also know that having a baby is a privilege because there are people who struggle to have one.
If I have one, it will be a gift from God. After that I’d like two, three, four, five. I am a taker, children are the future, (they are) life.
