Paul Pogba: “It’s true that things were different at Juve than they were at ManUtd. We were already playing 5-3-2 with three midfielders. I had the freedom, but I needed to be in the box in order to attack. It was a must.”
“I have the flexibility to get into the box at MUFC, but my priority is to play and defend.”
“We play in 4-2-3-1, which is also a diamond, for the national team.
I’m more involved with transmission and building. But I have more flexibility to penetrate the box and make attacking runs than I had at MUFC.”
“I’d want to be more offensive [laughs].” I’d like to score fifteen goals every season, but we must put ourselves at the service of the team. In MUFC, like in blue (France), the collective always comes first.”
“At the same time, with Griezmann and Kylian, you don’t want to invade their areas; you don’t need to.”
