Paul Pogba has given his honest assessment of the game after a stinging defeat for Manchester United against Leicester City
The Red Devils started the season on a high but have been going through a rough patch lately. The 4-2 defeat to the Foxes also ended the 29 games unbeaten streak away from home. This would add to the already increasing pressure on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who is still looking to lift his first trophy for the club as their manager.
The French midfielder has already provided 7 assists in 8 Premier League games this season. The star midfielder is being linked to a move away from the club as he comes closer to the end of his current contract with every passing day.
The 28-year-old midfielder made a brutal assessment of the game and wasn’t shy of speaking up about the kind of mentality that is required to win games and titles:
“We need to find something, we need to change something. I don’t know if the mindset of all of us, the players, when we start… we really don’t know. It’s frustrating because it’s something we don’t understand and we have to find that very fast because if you want to compete and you want to win the title, those games you have to win, even though they are very hard and we’re playing away.”
Man Utd would be under tremendous pressure to get back to form as soon as possible. That being said they will have to face some of the toughest opponents in Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur, and Manchester City in their next 3 PL fixtures. During this time the Red Devils will also have to play their Champions League tie against Atalanta. The unavailability of Raphael Varane could be another added burden for the Red Devils.
