Paul Pogba: “The French national team is a breath of fresh air.”

Speaking to RTL, Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba discussed France’s victory over Portugal on Saturday and much more.

“We are still excited, joyous, it is true that we really savoured this one. We played like a mature team. We attacked and defended together as one and we felt this feeling again that we had at the World Cup… The response was quick and immediate after the defeat to Finland and we will remember this one.”

On his situation at Manchester United:

This is a period, the kind of which I have never experienced in my career. The French national team is a breath of fresh air… We are very happy to come here and all very happy to see each other again. It is not the same as with the club… We all group together, it is magical. We realise that everyone is happy to come and that makes a difference.

On France’s aims at EURO 2021:

Our aim is to win the Euros. We want to win, it is meaningless if we cannot go all the way. We need to continue on what we did at the World Cup.
