Paul Pogba shrugging off criticism of France performances

Man Utd transfer news Jose Mourinho had numerous bust-ups with Paul Pogba this season

The midfielder is currently playing in his second FIFA World Cup, and given that he is only 25 years old, many would expect to see him being named in their World Cup team in Qatar four years from now.

France have already qualified for the knockout stages and will top the group if they don't lose to Denmark.

"It was a better season that the previous one", Pogba said. "I really want to enjoy this and to forget all the criticism, all the whispers from behind".

'What only matters to me is what is happening on the pitch.

The Frenchman started the campaign in incredible form, proving to be the core reason why his side started so well, blowing teams away in the opening fixtures of the Premier League.

The playmaker made the comments from France's base at the World Cup in Russian Federation after a frustrating club season at Manchester United.

Asked if France were capable of going all the way, Pogba said: "It's possible".


"Maybe it's my last World Cup, we do not know", he told reporters.

'There is no little team or even average players. "We will have to fight and to be strong".

Paul Pogba has admitted he had "small issues" with his Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho last season.

'Being a substitute, that sort of thing, it helps you to grow. I never had a season where I was pushed aside, or they put me on the bench.

"This is also the coach's job, this is his role, I need to accept that".
