Paul Pogba sets out targets despite struggle to focus after World Cup
- Pogba 'touched the stars' winning the World Cup last summer
- His mind is set on future achievements though
- The Prem and the UCL are his targets
''It's hard to concentrate, to start again, to hit hard, because we touched the stars,'' Pogba told Agence France-Presse. ''For us, it was the best trophy you can win as a footballer.''
However, Pogba is only looking forward, not backwards. He added: ''But we like challenges too, we have goals. For example, I've never won the Premier League, that's an objective. I'd like to do that.''
He then elaborated on his dream: ''What am I dreaming of? The Premier league, the Champions League, the Euros, being among the best players in the world. I want to mark the history of football. To be even more decisive, to score more goals.''
For all the criticism
These replies😂😂 calling Pogba overrated when they’ve never watched him play! Mans the best player in a team where his manager hates his guts! Was a crucial part of France winning a World Cup yet he has a poor mentality ffs— United Talk 🔴 (@Jake18462623) October 11, 2018
Pogba is now with France again as keeps on preparing himself for the international duty. Les Bleus are set to play Germany in the Nations League next week after having a warm-up game against Iceland on Thursday.
While with France, Pogba was fine to talk to the press as this week he was asked about being stripped of captaincy at Man United. He insisted the armband was never his goal as he doesn't captain either his national team or his club.
After that, Pogba returns to Manchester as the Reds will enter a tough spell with domestic games against the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City coming up, as well as facing his former club Juventus in the Champions League twice.
