Pogba: I play for the team


Paul Pogba has back at suggestions that he is not a team player.

The Manchester United midfielder was criticised by France manager Didier Deschamps last week who claimed the 23-year-old 'could do better'.

He went some way to answering his critics by scoring the only goal in France's 2018 World Cup qualifier defeat of the Netherlands on Monday night and afterwards he insisted he is a team player.

"I play for the France team. It's not the Pogba team. We're not going to start talking individuals. I play for the team and I always play for the team," he told Canal+.

"It's not always nice to hear criticism, but that's football. I stay focused on the field. I always give my all. Then, I try to make big benefits and give the best of myself.

"I am a person who tries things. We always grow and learn. I'm still young. I have goals, we have goals. We want to go to the World Cup."
