Manchester United star Paul Pogba has hit out at those who have questioned his loyalty and commitment to the Red Devils, stating that he has ‘always fought and will always fight’ for the Premier League giants.
The 27-year-old played the full 90 minutes in United’s 0-0 draw in the Manchester derby on Saturday, despite his agent Mino Raiola’s damning claims on Monday about the Frenchman’s supposed unhappiness at Old Trafford and desire to leave the club.
But Pogba took to Instagram after the Red Devils’ goalless draw to defend his corner, stating he ‘will always fight for Man Utd’, and ‘bla bla is not important’.
“I’ve always fought and will always fight for Manchester United, my teammates and the fans. Bla bla is not important. The future is far, today is what matters and I am 1000% involved!
“Always strong together.. all has been clear between the club and myself and that will never change.
When you don’t know what’s going on inside don’t talk ?#SpeakTheTruthOrRemainSilent#united#talktothehand✋? “
Pogba has been strongly linked with a return to Juventus, after Raiola declared the World Cup winner was ‘unhappy’ at Old Trafford, and Bianconeri sporting director Fabio Paratici admitted that the Italian giants ‘love him very much‘.
Man Utd boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has done all he can to throw cold water on these rumours, having stated that the midfielder ‘has got the hunger and appetite to play’ for the club, and has never downed tools during his time in Manchester.
Pogba’s future is hanging in the balance, and Man Utd’s hopes of keeping him will have been dealt a blow by their failure to qualify for the knockout round of the Champions League, having lost 3-2 to last year’s semi-finalists RB Leipzig.
But Pogba has promised to remain committed to the Red Devils – for now, at least.
