Pogba can’t understand ‘bizarre’ Spurs defeat

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has urged his side to continue working hard after their humiliating 3-0 home defeat to Spurs last night.

The Old Trafford outfit started the game full of energy as they looked to bounce back from their 3-2 defeat against Brighton last weekend, but were eventually outplayed by Mauricio Pochettino’s Spurs side.

Speaking afterwards Pogba revealed that he cannot understand how United lost the game claiming the defeat was undeserved due to the effort his side put into the game.

“We just have to bounce back,” Pogba told RMC Sport.

“It won’t be easy, but it’s just the start of the season. I prefer to start badly and end well than start well and finish badly.

“It’s bizarre. We were determined, we started well, and in the end we lost 3-0. It’s a shock.

“We have to keep going, we musn’t worry. We must work. We are still Manchester United and we won’t give up on anything.”

“Even we don’t understand what happened,”

“We started the game really well, we conceded two goals in the second half.

“The first goal was a real blow, we didn’t understand why, because we had the game in hand. One goal, two – we kept pushing, we had chances, and we conceded the third.

“The fans kept pushing us, they were really behind us.

“We feel really sorry for them, very disappointed, we wanted to do better. I think it was an undeserved defeat for us.

“In our desire, in everything we put into it. But football can be cruel.”
