Pogba admits to still not being 100% fit

Manchester United superstar star Paul Pogba, has admitted that he is still working his way back to full fitness despite his return to first-team action two weeks ago.

The 24-year-old has missed half of his sides Premier League games this season, after picking up a serious hamstring injury against Basle in the Champions League in September.

“Obviously it is tiring to play all of the those games, but that’s what you want,”

“That’s what you play football for. You sacrifice, but you enjoy it, so you go through it and you just want to recover to play those games.”

“I want to get better and help my team a bit more. I’ve played three games in a row. I played my last two games for 90 minutes so I need a bit more time to feel 100 per cent – but I’m still good to play.”

Despite this admission, Pogba has been in superb form since his return against Newcastle recently, and has added a creative spark to his teams play that was sadly missing in his absence.

After taking a bit of time to time to settle back into life in Manchester after his world-record breaking move from Juventus last summer, the talented midfielder has already shown plenty of signs this season, that he is ready to push on and fulfil his undoubtedly world-class potential.

United play Arsenal in a crunch Premier League encounter at the Emirates this Saturday evening, and with a gruelling December fixture list ahead of them, Jose Mourinho will be hoping the France international is back to his very best as soon as possible.
