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."

Conor McGregor will fight Eddie Alvarez for the lightweight belt at UFC 205 in New York on November 12 live on the eir Sport pack. The eir Sport pack is free to all eir broadband customers. To learn more about setting sport free visit www.eir.ie/sport .
