Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has joked that he didn’t expect to hit the ball that well with his left foot after scoring the winning goal against Fulham tonight.
The French international landed a magnificent goal with his weaker left side to put Man Utd 2-1 in the second half, putting them back at the top of the Premier League table after the disappointment of their 0-0 draw against Liverpool at the weekend.
Pogba is pretty good on both feet, but he joked that he didn’t expect to get such good contact on the ball with his weaker foot, although he was happy to see him come in and praised it as a “beautiful” goal.
“I hit the ball well,” Pogba told BT Sport, quoted by Manchester evening news. “I didn’t expect it with my left foot like that but if you don’t try, you won’t score.
“It was a beautiful goal and a beautiful victory. It was not my favorite goal, but it was beautiful ”.
United fans will be delighted to see Pogba produce a great moment to resolve an important game, with the 27-year-old missing a much easier opportunity in the weekend’s clash at Anfield.
He more than made up for it with this impressive blow to deliver another three major points in this season’s extremely close title race.
