Man Utd ace Pogba on World Cup approach: Haircuts had to go

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has again spoken of his approach to France's World Cup campaign.

Pogba has won great praise for the way he focused on his football in Russia.

And he told RMC: "A haircut does not prevent you from talking, but I purposely did nothing, to stay low key.

“Like that, I wasn't going to hear excuses about my haircut.

“We are going to stay focused. Talk about football, talk about the pitch, talk about performances. People say I'm a leader ... I will never say that, you have to show it on the pitch.

“There are moments when I laugh, I joke around, I love dancing.

“I like to enjoy my life, but I can also be serious when I have to be serious.

“If I can help the squad by speaking at times like that, I do it. The World Cup is important, you had to show maturity."
