PAUL POGBA: I am fit for Southampton game
Paul Pogba has declared himself fit to play in Manchester United’s second Premier League match of the season against Southampton on Friday night.
The 23-year-old, who arrived at Old Trafford for a world record fee of £89million last week, was suspended for United’s opening game at Bournemouth as a result of a suspension which carried over from his time at Juventus.
However, off the back of a busy summer with France at Euro 2016, Pogba believes he is ready to return to the field for his new side.
‘You have to ask the manager but I feel very good and have been training for 10 days. I am okay,’ says Pogba.
The midfielder also stressed to his new manager Jose Mourinho that he has been training hard in the lead-up to the 2016/17 campaign.
‘I am quite used to this. I played the World Cup two years ago when at Juve and three years ago I was at the Under 20s World Cup as well. So I am okay.
‘It is about your body and I have been training on my holidays.’
