Paul Pogba has confirmed that comments attributed to him in a Daily Mail interview are in fact false.
SportsMail ran an interview on Saturday – which was also reported here – claiming to have been with the Juventus midfielder.
In it, the French youngster was supposed to have said that he was ‘disrespected’ by Manchester United, and revealed that Andrea Pirlo was his sporting idol.
However, via his official Twitter account this afternoon, Pogba has insisted that the quotes are not true.
“The Daily Mail has falsely attributed words to Paul that are causing social media reaction,” a statement read.
“Paul wishes to say he has never been interviewed by the Daily Mail, SportsMail or [journalist] Mr David Kent, who he is happy to have never met.
“Paul reserves the right to take all appropriate legal actions.
