Manchester United Salon D’Or midfielder Paul Pogba has admitted to making a stupid mistake that cost his team against Arsenal on Sunday. Speaking after the match, Pogba admitted that he made a stupid mistake, that eventually cost his team all three points against the Gunners.
‘When you try to touch the ball before the guy, I felt like I touched him a bit. I knew I was in the box and I knew it would be a mistake.
‘At the end, I shouldn’t give a penalty like that. I should let him take the ball and try to block the cross.
‘Maybe I was bit out of breath because of the running just before and that made me do this stupid mistake. I will learn from that.
‘I am not the best defensively in the box and I have to work on this. I can always improve on that.’ Pogba said.
Pogba commited a foul on Arsenal’s Hector Bellerin in the box and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang converted the second half spot kick for the Gunners as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side struggled despite entering the match on the back of a thrilling 5-0 victory against RB Leipzig in the Champions League in midweek.
