Pogba sets 2021/22 Premier League assists target for himself

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is hoping to finish the 2021/22 campaign as the lead assist maker but admits that it would count for nothing if the Red Devils fail to win any silverware.

Pogba, 28, has been heavily linked with a move away from Old Trafford throughout the summer transfer window. However, it appears he put talks of an exit to bed after bagging 4 assists in the Red Devils’ 5:1 thrashing of Leeds United on matchday 1.

It can be recalled that only 6 players have hit such numbers since the Premier League began. The Frenchman won the Man of The Match Award for his performance on the day.

He went on to provide another assist in the next game against Southampton as the Red Devils came from a goal down to draw 1 all at the St Mary’s, thanks to elite finishing by Mason Greenwood.

The Frenchman wasn’t very thrilled by the assist as United currently sit 6th on the log and he is desperate to see his side gran all 3 points against Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Molineux this weekend.

‘Which assist means the most to me? The next one. The next one, hopefully,’ the 2018 World Cup winner with France said in a chat with the club’s official website.

‘It’s true that it’s been very nice to get those assists, but then you want to finish [as] the top assister of the league.

‘You want to win something at the end, so all this will mean something with a trophy.

‘It won’t mean anything without a trophy. I’m focused on that; I’m focused on giving my best on the pitch and hopefully I can get many more.’

Pogba added: ‘Seven points out of nine, that’s what we want.
‘We want this win this weekend, we know it’s going to be very important.

‘It’s the push. The games at the start are very important and it’s going to push us as well through the season and we need the three points.
