Paul Pogba was back in the news on Saturday for comments regarding his time at Manchester United. However, on Sunday, he claimed that he never made those comments at all.
The Juventus midfielder is currently with France preparing for the World Cup, which kicks off later this month.
His stint with Sir Alex Ferguson and Manchester United was put back into the spotlight after an interview in the Daily Mail.
The Mail quoted Pogba as referring to his time there as the worst of his career, stating:
[My worst moment was] my time at Manchester United. Of course when you are at such a big club you understand you need to be patient for your chance, but I did not feel respected or valued as a player or a man.
Pogba is now not only denying the statement, but claiming that the interview never took place. He posted the following statement to Twitter:
And here's the transcription:
What a fake! The Dailymail (sic) website has falsely attributed words to Paul that are causing social media reaction. Paul wishes to say he has never been interviewed by the Dailymail (sic), Sportsmail or Mr David Kent, who he is happy to have never met. Paul reserves the right to take all appropriate legal actions.—The Pogfamily
