The French midfielder was unable to help the Red Devils overcome Manchester City and reach the Carabao Cup final, but he is trying to stay optimistic.
Paul Pogba admits that playing for Manchester United is “not easy” but that he is keeping his eye on “the important stuff” after enduring more pain in the semifinals at the hands of rivals Manchester City.
Having taken off at that stage in three competitions last season, history repeats itself at Old Trafford.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side headed into their final derby date with City on the back of a spike in fortune that has launched them into the image of the Premier League title, however they suffered a 2-0 loss to the Citizens.
Pogba says there is no time for United to wallow in misery with expectations as high as ever, and he is confident that tangible success can be achieved in 2021.
The World Cup winner said MUTV on the challenges Solskjaer faces: “There is no time to be disappointed for a week because we know where we are.
“We are in a good position now. We don’t have time to be disappointed. We don’t have time. We will get through this and come back.”
“It is difficult and it is going to be difficult, and you learn from these games. We hope that it will help us to improve, improve and have a positive result in the next matches.
“Football and playing for Manchester United is not easy, it will never be easy, but it makes victory more beautiful and beautiful when we go through a difficult time, then we get over it.
“It is beautiful and you feel the emotion. That is all we want. That’s what the fans want, that’s what the team wants, everyone wants this. The club is based on winning and great things, so that’s all we want to achieve: great things. “
Pogba believes United are heading in the right direction despite seeing their semi-final curse once again.
The French international, who has enjoyed his own return to form lately, added: “We are improving. Last year they [City] they were obviously more dominant and they dominated us.
“We are improving in the league and even though we lost in the semi-final, we are still going far and that’s what we want, but now it’s about details. It’s good to improve but we have to take the next step now, all of us ”.
United have more knockout football to come on Saturday, with their FA Cup third-round clash with Watford following for the Red Devils.
