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."
