Pogba: " We always want to beat Man City"
Posted by Ezeudoye Samuel on July 21, 2017


Paul Pogba produced another excellent pre-season performance as United beat local rivals City 2-0 in the first-ever Manchester derby to be played outside the UK.

The Frenchman provided a superb assist for Romelu Lukaku to open the scoring late in the first half, ahead of Marcus Rashford doubling the lead two minutes later with another astute finish.

The Frenchman spoke to MUTV following the final whistle at the NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas, to reflect on a third victory of Tour 2017, presented by Aon. Here’s what he had to say…

What are your thoughts on beating City and the performance?
"You know it is a derby. Whether it is a friendly game or not, you want to win against Manchester City and show that you are ready for the test. It is the third game today and we have to carry on like that. The winning mentality, we have to keep it."

What happened with your chance to score in the second half?
"It was a nice chance for me. I didn't score, but I have to keep trying. You always say ‘shoot, shoot’. The ball came to me and I shot. It just touched the feet of the guy and I missed, but I will keep trying."

We enjoyed your dancing feet to keep the ball from Fernandinho…
"It was at the end and I wanted to keep the ball. Nobody was around so I just took him on. The most important thing is to not lose the ball and not let the team go into contact [situations]. So I took him on and crossed for the team."

You must hope that you won’t hit the bar so many times this season?
"Hopefully this season will be more on my side. But if I don't score and we still win then I will be the most happy."
