Manchester United stand-in captain Paul Pogba has finally admitted that his attitude was wrong during the game against Brighton last night.
The France international, who is reportedly in a rift against José Mourinho, has blamed himself and his teammates for their defeat to the Seagulls at the Amex Stadium.
According to the player in his post-match interview with reporters, the whole team had the wrong attitude during the game but as the captain, he took the responsibility.
He admitted that playing 3-1 in the first half a game is very unacceptable for a team of their calibre and quality.
He revealed that the whole team believed they could equalize while the game was at 2-1 but their hopes were dashed when Pascal Gross scored from the spot to give the Seagulls a 3-1 lead.
However, his reported misunderstanding with his manager is far from settled as the player failed to talk on behalf of the Portuguese manager.
When asked how did Mourinho react to their performance in the first period of the game, Pogba clearly told reporters to ask the gaffer himself because he didn’t love talking on other people.
“The first half, I think you should ask him. I don’t want to talk for other people, I think you should ask him,” he said.
With last night’s result, José Mourinho continues his unwanted record against Brighton at the Amex Stadium.
He was defeated 2-1 by the Seagulls at the Stadium last season to further the gap between his team and Manchester City, who were the eventual Champions.
