Man Utd midfielder Pogba on victory over Atalanta: We kept believing

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba hailed the "character" they showed for victory over Atalanta.

United won last night's Champions League clash 3-2, fighting back from 2-0 down.

"We showed big character - the character of this team, of this club," midfielder Pogba told MUTV.

"It was a very good result even if we didn't start well but at the end we got the result that we wanted and the energy, you could feel the belief and the positive energy just on the pitch.

"I can say it was a beautiful win, with the belief, we kept believing.

"We knew that if we score one goal we can win this game and the fans were crazy also. They push us until the end and we just showed the character of the team and the club.

"It's a big three points. We needed that. We didn't start the Champions League well with the loss against Young Boys but we got two very good results and we have to carry on."

The France international also said: "On this game for sure the energy is more positive.

"But then when you say change it doesn't mean like you will change straight away. It's a work (in progress).

"It's all of us, it's a trust with everyone. It's a belief and you stick together, so all this is coming game by game but today for sure it's a big reaction.

"It's the way that we have to carry on until the end of the season."
