Griezmann admits Man Utd ace Pogba 'changed in Russia'

Atletico Madrid ace Antoine Griezmann admits Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba surprised France teammates during the World Cup.

Pogba won great praise for his maturity during France's triumphant campaign.

And Griezmann said: “Paul has really moved up a notch in the dressing room. He had the right words, which has pushed us.

“Hugo (Lloris), Raph (Varane) and Blaise (Matuidi), we knew that they were there, but Paul, yes, we became more surprised and the way he spoke, it did us good.

“Every time he speaks, I want to laugh. Paul is so used to the funny, which is why it surprises me.

“It is for this reason that when he speaks, Paul never looked at me. He knows that I would have a small smile, due to which he can laugh at any time."
