Manchester United have to win a trophy this season, according to Paul Pogba.
Pogba was part of the side that won the Europa League and League Cup that season, although he added the World Cup in 2018 with France. Still, a near-four year wait for a trophy with United is too long, he says, as he detailed the desire among Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad to win something this year.
With United facing Roma in the Europa League semi-finals, the Frenchman says winning that competition will help the club achieve their goals – as well as giving him a feeling he’s missed at Old Trafford in recent seasons.
“Personally I miss it a lot and feel like I miss something,” Pogba told Sky Sports. “We have to win something.
“I just want to win something; I don’t like to play and not win. I’m a bad loser, I will always be a bad loser, so every time I play, I want to win. Personally, we want it very bad. I think we are getting closer and closer; there is improvement I would say.
“When I say improvement, this club has such big goals and objectives we want to achieve and that is to win and to have a trophy to hold. That is what we want and that will be the big step.”
Pogba insists titles are not far away from this squad, as he spoke again of not giving up the Premier League title until it is mathematically impossible. Victory against Burnley on Sunday will take United to within eight points of City, with six games remaining.
“I’m happy, we’re there, we’re close. We’re still in the Europa League, we still have something to play for,” he continued.
“We have the league still, as long as City don’t have the trophy we’re going to keep working and playing. We still have a chance to win something this year so, why not?”
