Manchester United’s world record signing Paul Pogba says he is fit to make his second debut against Southampton on Friday.
Pogba was unavailable for the game against Bournemouth, due to a ban carried over from his time at Juventus. However he is now eligible to play and is eager to start the first home game of the season.
There are still a few question marks over the fitness of some of Euro 2016’s stars, especially those of France and Portugal – but the midfielder insists he is ready for action.
“You have to ask the manager, but I feel very good and have been training for 10 days. I am okay,” Pogba said in the Manchester Evening News.
“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 U20 World Cup as well. So I am okay. It is about your body and I have been training on my holidays.”
“I am just happy to play football, I don’t even think about it [the transfer fee].
“My ambition is always be the the No 1 and be the best. So the objective is to win the league. We want to go back to the Champions League because that is where we belong.”
