Pogba: I'm the most criticised player in the world

18 June 2018

Paul Pogba claimed he is the most criticised player on the planet, despite two key contributions in France`s unconvincing 2-1 win over Australia at the World Cup.

The Manchester United midfielder played in Antoine Griezmann for the forward to win a penalty for France`s opening goal, before later seeing his deflected shot go in via the underside of the crossbar for the winner.

The 25-year-old had an inconsistent season for club and country in 2017-18, but despite his performances continuously coming under the microscope, Pogba says he pays no attention.

It seems I have less right than others to make mistakes, he told Telefoot.

It`s funny. I went from the biggest transfer in the world, to the most criticised player in the world. The critics will always be there. That`s football

When I was little with my friends, we always used to take the p*** out of each other, saying `you were good, you were bad.` It`s what happens on every football pitch and I treat the criticism now like I did when I was playing on the block as a kid.

I`m out there having fun – and that’s the only answer I can give to all those people who criticise me or think I am this or that. It`s not a big deal. Everybody has opinions.

France`s World Cup campaign continues on Thursday when they face Peru.
