We Acknowledge Easy Goals, Not Stupid Goals – Pogba Reacts To Man United’s Loss To Leicester


Paul Pogba has said Manchester United expressed his displeasure over the manner they let in goals in the 4-2 loss to Leicester at the King Power stadium on Saturday, describing it as easy and stupid goals.

United resumed following the international break with the defeat to the Foxes which ended their 29-game unbeaten run away.

David De Gea was arguably United’s best player, as he made a string of saves – while big names such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Harry Maguire and Pogba himself were off colour.

United started the day level on points with Manchester City and one behind Liverpool, but dropped off the pace following the loss to Brendan Rodgers’ side.


Pogba was not surprised by the result, as he claims United have been playing the same way for too long.

“To be honest we have been having those kinds of games for a long time and we haven’t found the problem,” Pogba told Sky Sports. “We have to find the problem.

“We concede easy goals, stupid goals, when we know these games on this pitch the fans are going to push and put pressure on.

“We need to be more mature and play with more experience, arrogance in a good way. We have to take the ball and play our football.

“We have to find what is the key of this change, and this game that we lose as we deserve to lose today.

Pogba believes the entire squad needs to take an inward look and find the solution, otherwise they will not be challenging for titles come the end of the season.

“It is all of us,” Pogba said. “We have to find something, to change something. The mindset of all of us.

“We don’t know, and it is frustrating as we don’t understand. We have to find that fast as, if we want to compete and to win the title, we have to win those games, even though they are hard.

“We have to find the right mentality and the right tactics to win those games. We have to stick together and find the problem.”

United’s attentions now turn to a Champions League clash with Atalanta on Wednesday.
