The Frenchman is determined to build on a bright start to the new campaign, with which he has set five goals
Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has set an ambitious goal for the 2021-22 Premier League season.
Pogba started at the start of the latest campaign, scoring five goals in his first two games.
The Frenchman scored four goals during Leeds’ 5-1 win, before also becoming a supplier in the 1-1 draw at Southampton, and he hopes to build on the platform as the season progresses.
What was said?
Before the Red Devils’ clash with Wolves on Molineux on Sunday, Pogba revealed his ambition to win the Premier League’s Playmaker award.
However, silverware is the first priority of the 28-year-old, as he said MUTV: “Which tool means the most to me? The next one. Hopefully the next one. It was true that it was very nice to get the help, but then you want to finish [as] the best assistant of the league.
“You want to win something in the end, so that would mean everything with a trophy. It would mean nothing without a trophy. I’m focused on that; I am focused on delivering my best on the field and hopefully I can get a lot more. ”
Pogba on Wolves challenge
Pogba also stressed the importance of beating Wolves after last weekend’s setback at St Mary’s, but expect a tough exam against Bruno Lage’s well – organized team.
“Seven points out of nine, that’s what we want,” he added. “We want this victory this weekend, we know it’s going to be very important. This is the pressure. The games at the start are very important, and that will push us through the season as well, and we need the three points.
“You know it’s going to be a tough one. It will always be difficult, but we focus on achieving the three points. ”
Pogba’s United numbers
Pogba has already scored more assists this quarter than during the entire 2020-21 season, and he has scored a total of 47 goals in 208 games since returning to Juventus in 2016 at Old Trafford.
The winner of the World Cup also scored 38 himself, while winning the Europa League and League Cup, but he is now aiming to help United achieve a trophy-free series of four years under Ole Gunnar Solskjær.
