Paul Pogba says his attitude was ‘wrong’ after Man United loss

Pogba was wrong

Paul Pogba has taken a huge portion of the blame for Man United’s loss to Brighton.

The player made it clear he felt he was below par today, and added that the rest of the United team also need to do better.

“We lost, we did not deserve to win,” Pogba told Sky Sports after the match. “The attitude we had was not like we wanted to beat them, they had more hunger than us.

“I put myself first, my attitude wasn’t right enough, we keep trying and pushing, and it is going to be a big lesson for us.”

Of course, the player also posted on social media, something that he’s well known for.

He repeated the same message, and said the players and the fans have to keep their heads held high.

Mourinho won’t blame players

In a shock turn of events, manager Jose Mourinho also decided not to blame the players.

Mourinho made it clear to the media he was not happy, but stopped short of being critical of his players, something he did last season.

The United boss will want to see his side react to the defeat well – and put their season back on track.

That might be easier said than done, with Manchester City already looking heads and shoulders above them.
