Paul Pogba Turns His House Into Mini Football Pitch And Practices With His Wife

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is hoping to show the world that he was worth the £89 million the Red Devils paid in 2016.

The 27-year-old admits to having drawn up a list of ‘goals' during his time away from the club and says that he is ‘hungry' to perform.

Pogba said in an interview with Adidas: ”I have goals. And I've been injured for seven months, seven to eight months. So I'm more hungry now, you know.

”I want to come back and obviously do great. I've been missing a lot of games, and I want to be the best, obviously. So when I will come back, I want to be the best, and when I'm at home, there's no excuse,” the Red Devils midfielder said.

The Frenchman admitted it has been a frustrating time but is excited about returning to the pitch when allowed to do so.

”So proper injured, no football. I've been in a cast. So I've been training by myself for, like, probably seven months, and when I was going back to the pitch, the problem arrived of the corona, so we had to stop everything [and] since we've been in quarantine.

”I've been in the house working. I made a little pitch in my house, a football pitch so I can train, it's like a small mini-football pitch where I just now play with my son, we're just playing inside. We just go in there, and there are balls everywhere, and you play. With my wife, sometimes we do yoga stretches.”
