Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has taken time in the media to thank his manager Jose Mourinho and his teammates as well.
Pogba scored twice in United’s Champions League opening game against Swiss side Young Boys on Wednesday night at Stade de Suisse.
The 25-year-old, who also set up Anthony Martial goal to make it 3-0, has scored the first goal on a superb shot while the second was a penalty.
The France international, who missed a penalty against Burnley on September 2, has said that he should thank United players and Mourinho to have allowed him to take another penalty.
“Obviously when you win you are happier, mentally we are stronger we get better, we change the team but even the players who come in feel already like they are in the team, and that’s all we need,” said Pogba.
“It’s a very important win because it was the first game in the Champions League, we needed to start well and we did. We had the result we wanted, maybe the performance should be better, but we have the result and three points.”
“I didn’t have any doubts about taking the penalty. I know I missed that one against Burnley,” Pogba added.
“Joe Hart got me that time but I won’t make the same mistake.”
“I had the confidence of the players, they let me take it and I should thank them for this, as well as the manager – he let me take it as well.”
