Pogba 'hates' bench role

English Premier League

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba reveals he hates sitting on the bench, as he is a 'winner' who wants to help his team.

Pogba spent some time on the bench at the end of last year due to form and injuries, but he has now become one of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's main men once again.

The Frenchman's solitary strike against Burnley on Monday night sent United top of the table ahead of Sunday evening's clash against rivals Liverpool.

“I've been feeling very good in myself, physically and mentally as well. I've been playing and when you're playing, you get your form," he told Sky Sports.

“It's a huge difference when you start one game and don't start another one, or if you don't start for a few games. Obviously, the team helped the players to be in good form, we've been playing very well. The players and the staff have been playing me, trusting me.

“I have to focus in myself and give my best. On the left, on the right, in the middle, striker, defender, anything. As long as I'm on the pitch I give my best and as much as I can do to help my team.

“I hate to be on the bench, I don't like it. It doesn't mean that other players don't deserve to be playing but for myself, I don't like it. I'm a winner, I just want to play football and help my team. When I'm on the bench and I don't come on, I feel like I can't help my team-mates so I feel bad and I don't like it.”
