LONDON (AFP) – Paul Pogba claimed he remains fully committed to Manchester United despite his agent stating he is “unhappy” at Old Trafford and looking for a move in January.
Pogba was recalled to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s starting line-up for Saturday’s uninspired 0-0 draw with Manchester City in the Premier League.
The French World Cup winner had started on the bench as United crashed out of the Champions League at the group stage with defeat to RB Leipzig on Tuesday.
Just a day before the game, Pogba’s outspoken agent Mino Raiola told Italian newspaper Tuttosport his client had to “change teams”.
The 27-year-old rejoined United for a then world record GBP89 million (USD118 million) in 2016, but has failed to make the desired impact as the Red Devils have not challenged to win either the Premier League or the Champions League.
“I’ve always fought and will always fight for @manchesterunited , my teammates and the fans,” Pogba posted on Instagram.
“Bla bla is not important. The future is far, today is what matters and I am 1,000 per cent involved! Always strong together.. all has been clear between the club and myself and that will never change.
“When you don’t know what’s going on inside don’t talk #SpeakTheTruthOrRemainSilent #united #talktothehand.”
