Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba admits that he wants to play in a more attacking midfield role, but is willing to adapt his game for the good of the team.
Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has admitted that he would rather play as an attacking midfielder with licence to go forward.
The world's most expensive player has spent much of his United career in a deeper midfield role so far, with the likes of Wayne Rooney and Juan Mata being preferred in the number 10 position.
Pogba revealed that he would ideally play further up the field, but insists that he is willing to adapt his game for the good of the team.
"I try to adapt. I am a player who would rather go forward. The coach gave me instructions, I try to follow them," he told reporters.
"I have to retrieve balls and make defensive efforts. It cost me a bit to play differently, much like [Andrea] Pirlo. I have to play, be there to recover and play more for the team."
United take on fierce rivals Liverpool at Anfield on Monday night.
