Paul Pogba thanks Jose Mourinho and his team-mates for trusting him to remain the club’s first-choice penalty taker.
On Wednesday, he scored twice in United’s 3-0 victory over Young Boys in the Champions League. Earlier this month, Pogba had one saved penalty by Joe Hart in the win at Burnley and he was grateful he was allowed to retain the responsibility.
Following the win in Switzerland, he said: “I didn’t have doubts about taking the penalty. I know I missed that one. Joe (Hart) got me that time but I won’t do the same mistake. I had the confidence as well of the players, they let me take it, so I should thank them for this, for the manager – he let me take it as well.”
The manager was impressed with the confidence of Pogba and said: “I like the player to have the courage to take a penalty after one that he missed. I like that. He missed against Burnley. The next penalty the team has, he is there to take it, to make it 2-0 and to kill the game for us.”
