MUTV: Paul, welcome back to Manchester United. How do you sum up your emotions right now?

Paul Pogba: There’s no words, to be honest, there’s no words. I just came back to Carrington. It was like I’d just come back home. I just went for avholiday, looks like I went for a holiday. I’ve come back home, I’m happy and I see everyone, the same persons. It’s just a great feeling, to be honest.

MUTV: I suppose it’s a funny question after what you’ve just said but why are you back here at United? What made you come back?

Paul Pogba: I think it’s destiny, I would say it’s destiny. First my mum told me I would come back here and I told her, ‘You never know, you’ll see.’ For myself as well it’s a big challenge too, just to come back to where I came from, where I grew up, where I started. I didn’t finish what I started here so I think I came here to finish it.

MUTV: And of course, you have to listen to your mum…

Paul Pogba: My mum, she says ‘Your mum’s always right.’So she was right this time, so it’s good.

MUTV: And how does it feel to be the world’s most expensive footballer? That’s quite an achievement with all that you’ve already achieved on the pitch…

Paul Pogba: The thing with me is I only think about the pitch. I want to do great, I want to be one of the best, I want to win titles, I want to achieve things and that’s all; that’s why I came here, just to do this, to become one of the best and to win titles because I know this club has to win titles. This club is created to win titles, to win things, to win big things. I just focus on this and that’s it. I’m just ready to go and work on that and just kill it. (smiles)

MUTV: Has it been a mad summer for you, playing in the Euros at home for France and then being linked with different clubs?

Paul Pogba: Yeah. Was there a bit of sadness? Of course, because we lost the final at home. But I will say I’m happy. It was a bad thing for a good thing so I’m happy now. I’m back home and it’s something crazy, it’s really crazy, I cannot explain. I’m very, very happy, the feeling I have in my body. I can’t wait to start.


MUTV: What’s it like being Paul Pogba now, compared to when you were here at 18 or 19, in this indoor arena at the Academy?

Paul Pogba: Well, I was younger. Now I’m taller and bigger (laughs). It’s just like… as I told you… it looks like I went for a holiday and I came back home. I was meant to come back here. I feel this. I always had this United thing in my heart and that’s why I came back. I’m happy, just happy.

MUTV: How have you changed as a player since you were here at United the first time around? What have you learned about your game, about yourself? How are you different?

Paul Pogba: I’m more experienced, I’ve won titles at Juventus. I’ve been playing with big players like when I started at Man United, of course. I came back. I’ve not come back from the Academy now; I went to play somewhere else and I came back, I would say, as a person, as an adult. I would say with experience, with more games, so I think that’s the difference.
