Manchester United star Paul Pogba has admitted that he was not at a hundred per cent against Swansea City on Sunday.
The Frenchman suffered a knee injury in Thursday’s Europa League defeat in Turkey against Fenerbahce, and he was forced off in the first-half.
But he was able to turn out at the Liberty Stadium just three days later, and scored the opening goal in a 3-1 victory.
After the game, the world’s most expensive player revealed that he was not operating at full capacity.
“I always say that when you go with your head, everything will follow,” Pogba told MUTV.
“It [the injury] is not gone. It’s still here. I was fit enough to play and after the gaffer put me in I played and I give my best every time.”
It is not thought that Pogba will be out for any significant amount of time, with clubs winding down for the international break. United return to league action against Arsenal.
Pogba’s comments come in the aftermath of Jose Mourinho’s remarks about England duo Chris Smalling and Luke Shaw.
