Manchester United now wants to win titles, a proper team: Paul Pogba
Manchester United has made enormous improvements this season but they need to win trophies to guarantee a proper campaign, their France midfielder Paul Pogba said Monday. United are fifth in the Premier League table with 58 points, but by beating Southampton at Old Trafford later on Monday with their focus on qualifying for the Champions League, Leicester City and Chelsea will leapfrog into third position. The in-form side of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is also battling to win the FA Cup, where they face Chelsea in the semi-finals at Wembley, and the Europa League, where they have a 5-0 lead over LASK going into their last-16 home second leg. "United about trophies, we know that. We know we can get trophies," Pogba, 27, told the club 's website. "We don't want to let this opportunity go. By giving everything we will do our best to go and get those two trophies." United are in all competitions on a 17-match unbeaten streak and Pogba has credited their recent form run to strike a balance between attack and defense. "You can call it a proper squad. Sometimes before we were either too defensive or too offensive and we didn't have this balance or this power. Now you can see we have the balance and there's more structure," he said. "The change is massive but you don't want to interrupt it. There's a ton more things to do, we 're not there yet but we're on the way. If we keep doing what we're doing, so I think there's little that will deter us from getting to where we're meant to be." After returning from an ankle injury Pogba has been impressive, netting his first league goal after April 2019 in last week's 3-0 victory at Aston Villa.
