Paul Pogba has begged fans to be patient with him as he adapts to his new club ahead of his Manchester United’s clash against Liverpool.
The 23-year-old United academy product rejoined the Old Trafford side as the club broke the transfer record to bring him back to the Premier League, four years after he left the club to join Juventus on a free transfer.
Pogba has only scored one goal since making his second United debut in August, 2016.
The player admits he is still adapting to Jose Mourinho’s side and adds that critics do not bother him because he listens to music and dances after their jibes.
“I will need a little time to adapt in Manchester, time for the machine to start working. I am adapting,” Pogba said in an interview with French TV station TF1.
“People like to talk about Paul Pogba. The critics, they stay for a day, then after that I put my music back on, I dance.”
United face Liverpool on Monday, October 17, knowing that a victory can pull them level on points with their north-west rivals, and potentially lift Jose Mourinho’s side into the top four.
