Paul Pogba unhappy with the lack of role at Man Utd, talks PSG interest

Paul Pogba has vented his frustration on not having a defined role at Manchester United and the lack of success over the years.

The French midfielder has often been criticised for being a consistent performer with the national team but not being able to replicate at the club level.

Pogba has pointed out that he enjoys more confidence and freedom under Les Bleus manager Didier Deschamps, thus taking a swipe at Man Utd’s interim manager Ralf Rangnick.

The French international has been deployed at different positions by Rangnick in recent weeks and was also left out of the starting eleven in the Champions League against Atletico Madrid.

Speaking in an interview with Le Figaro via 90 min, Pogba said: “[Didier Deschamps] gave me a role that I know [for France], but, at Manchester United, do I really have a role? I ask the question and I don’t have the answer.

“I have much more playing time [with France], the system is different than at club level. In fact, it’s simple, with Les Bleus, I play, and moreover, in my position. I know my role, I feel the confidence of the coach and the players.

“It’s normal to feel this difference with Manchester, because it’s hard to be regular when you often change your position, your system of play or your partners.”

Pogba also added that he is completely unhappy with United’s trophy drought over the last five seasons.

The 29-year-old added: “To keep winning, to keep progressing, and to make up for those years when I couldn’t win trophies.

“I have to be honest, I’m not happy with that – over the last five seasons, but really not at all. This year it’s dead, we won’t win anything again.”

Finally, Pogba spoke about the speculations regarding Paris-Saint-Germain, stating that he would be happy to represent Les Parisiens while insisting that he wants to win more trophies in future.

Pogba added: “Why not? It’s always nice to play with your teammates in the national team and club.

“I don’t know if it’s gonna be with Man Utd or another club but what I want is to win trophies.”

Pogba’s contract at Old Trafford expires this summer, and everything indicates he could be on the move.
