World’s most expensive footballer Paul Pogba hopes to become an influential leader just like Wayne Rooney, Zlatna Ibrahimovic and Michael Carrick at Manchester United.
“Obviously, Zlatan was a leader, he was a big leader, because he always helped the team and even when he wasn’t playing he was a leader outside of the pitch,” Pogba told Manchester United’s official website ahead of Wednesday’s International Champions Cup match against Barcelona.
“I have been here for one season and I came here to hopefully be a leader for the team. That is the objective, that is how you should be. You want to grow up as a player and as a leader as well. Hopefully I can learn from Wayne, from Carras (Carrick), from all of the players and become a leader.”
Commenting on his transfer-record move from Juventus and United returning to their glory days, Pogba said: “It was a big challenge for me (transfer record). I knew that I wouldn’t be playing in the Champions League but I said to myself that I want Manchester United to be the Manchester United that I knew back in the day.
“I think we are on the way [towards that]. We won three trophies last season, we are back in the Champions League and the team is improving a lot again. So I hope that we are going to continue in that way, and improve and improve.”11 BUSINESS NUGGETS FROM SUPER EAGLES BRONZE MEDAL TRIUMPH.
