I Made A Stupid Mistake – Pogba

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.

Pogba did not have one of his best games 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.
