Paul Pogba has spoken about United’s lack of ambition in home games after they were held to a 1-1 draw by Wolves at Old Trafford on Saturday.
The French international risked the anger of his manager when he said United should “attack, attack, attack” in home matches.
Pogba suggested that his team who are already eight points adrift Liverpool at the top should be more aggressive in home games.
“We should play much better against Wolves,” Pogba told reporters. “When we are at home we should attack, attack, attack.”That’s Old Trafford. We are here to attack. I think teams are scared when they see Manchester United attacking and attacking.
“That was our mistake today [Saturday]. We’ve had three games at home and we’ve got only four points. It’s not enough.”Maybe the attitude should be better and we should play better because, again, we are at Old Trafford and we should just attack and press like we did against Tottenham, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal last season. When we play like this it’s easier for us.”
When asked why United did not cause Wolves more problems, the player said:
“I can’t tell you because I’m a player – it’s not me.”
“I’m not the manager, I cannot say that, but obviously we should show more options of playing, but I cannot say that because I’m a player. That’s my way of thinking – we should move better, we should move more.
“It’s true that maybe we should have showed more hunger in some parts. Maybe as well we felt a bit of fatigue because we played Champions League [against Young Boys]. Maybe he’s right, I don’t know.
“We didn’t lose, but for me we should have won. We are at home, they are three points that we should get.
“We’ve played six games in the Premier League, it’s not that we should get worried, but we should obviously get closer – get closer and closer. It’s better for us if we get close.”
