Paul Pogba says Manchester United must ‘attack, attack, attack’ at Old Trafford

12:25 am, 24th September 2018

United were held to a 1-1 draw at home by newly-promoted Wolves on Saturday after Joao Moutinho’s second-half strike cancelled out Fred’s opener.

Jose Mourinho’s side have won each of their last three away games against Burnley, Watford and Young Boys respectively, but have lacked a clinical edge at Old Trafford, losing 3-0 to Tottenham last month and edging past Leicester City on the opening day of the season.

“When we are at home we should attack, attack, attack. That’s Old Trafford,” said Pogba following the draw.

“We are at home and we should play much better against Wolves. We are here to attack. I think teams are scared when they see Manchester United attacking and attacking. That was our mistake.”

He added: “Maybe the attitude should be better and we should play better because, again, we are at Old Trafford and we should just attack and press like we did against Tottenham, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal last season.

“When we play like this it’s easier for us.”

Pogba provided an assist in the match for summer signing Fred to score his first goal for United, and recently earned praise from his national team manager Didier Deschamps for his play.

Deschamps came to the defence of Pogba this week by admitting he believes the player is a “born leader” who is largely misunderstood by many football fans and pundits alike.
