Paul Pogba admits that Manchester United’s blank against Burnley made him ‘mad’ — prime_philip

The Red Devils could only draw 0-0 with their north-west rivals at Old Trafford on Saturday, which left the world record midfielder frustrated

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba says that the Red Devils’ 0-0 draw against Burnley left him feeling ‘mad’.

Despite 37 attempts on goal, United were unable to beat an inspired Tom Heaton in the Clarets goal, as Jose Mourinho’s side chalked up a second successive Premier League draw at Old Trafford, report the Manchester Evening News.

The France midfielder improved after the half-time break and laid the ball on a plate for Zlatan Ibrahimovic, only to see the Swede scuff wide as his goal drought continues.

Pogba was at Wembley on Sunday where he took in the NFL game between the Washington Redskins and Cincinnati Bengals as the guest of cornerback Josh Norman.

“I was mad too, like him,” Pogba told CSN Mid-Atlantic, referring to Redskins’ irate Norman. “But, you know, that’s the game.

“To be honest, I feel like I’ve lost when I tie, but that’s just the game, you know? You just have to think about the next game and do better.”

United have won one of their last seven Premier League fixtures, taking a measly six points from a possible 21.

Mourinho takes his squad to Fenerbahce in the Europa League for their fourth European tie of the season on Thursday before a trip to 19th-placed Swansea on Sunday.
