Pogba
admits he lost some focus after winning the 2018 Soccer World Cup with
France, causing him to make a slow start to the season.

in trouble and could lose Pogba

The 25-year-old midfielder played a big
part in Les Bleus’ campaign in Russia, scoring a goal in the final as Didier
Deschamps’ side beat Croatia 4-2 to lift the coveted trophy.

However, his success with the national team
did not translate into a strong start to the season at United, who lost two of
their opening three Premier League games before dropping points at home to
Wolves and losing at West Ham.

Jose Mourinho’s troops now sit in eighth
position, seven points off the pace at the top of the table, and Pogba admits
he wasn’t at his best when the league got underway.

“It’s hard to concentrate, to start
again, to hit hard, because we touched the stars,” he told AFP. “For
us, it was the best trophy you can win as a footballer.

“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.”
