Manchester United midfielder, Paul Pogba has come out to say that he never fouled Ruben Neves in the build-up to MUFC’s winning goal on Sunday. He recently revealed that there was really no contact between both players and the goal was very fair.
According to him, it was a clear 50-50 challenge between him and the Portuguese midfielder, and it happens every week in the EPL.
He added that Manchester United won the ball fairly and squarely, and the goal is obviously legitimate.
His words, “I didn’t touch him,”
“This is the Premier League, it was a 50-50, every weekend that is happening.”
“We win the ball and we scored.”
Neves added, “Everyone saw it, everyone saw my leg, we always do meetings and everything with referees about VAR, I don’t know why,”
“They said before the season started they will look for contact – if the contact is strong enough, they will give the foul. I showed them my leg.”
“I think maybe because last game it was a foul before the Southampton goal, maybe now they did the opposite. I showed my leg to the ref, I showed to the assistant ref, I cannot say anything more.”
“After the game he said ‘you both go to the ball’ and I said ‘yes, we both go to win the ball but I was the one who touched the ball’. It’s a foul, a clear foul.”
