Paul Pogba appears to have contradicted Mino Raiola for the second time in as many weeks following Manchester United’s win over Fulham.

Pogba’s agent Raiola dropped a bombshell back in December when he revealed his client is unhappy at Manchester United and wants to leave.

His announcement, on the eve of United crashing out of the Champions League, left Ole Gunnar Solskjaer furious and it looked as if Pogba was going to be sold in January.

But the Frenchman is enjoying something of a resurgence at Old Trafford and has become one of the first names on Solskjaer’s teamsheet.

Pogba scored the Red Devils’ second in their 2-1 win over Fulham on Wednesday night, and revealed how happy he is at United at the moment.

Pogba said: “I love winning, it’s all about winning. I will always be happy when I win, and I will always be happy when I’m on the pitch. Today we won, so I’m happy. The day we lose I’ll be angry again. This is me.”

On his goal, he added: “I hit it well. I didn’t expect my left foot to be like this. You know, if you don’t try you don’t know what’s going to happen. I’m really glad the ball went in. It was a beautiful goal and a beautiful victory. That’s the most important.”

His comments follow ones he made after United’s win over Burnley, in which he also reiterated how happy he is at the club.

“I’m always happy when I win,” announced Pogba. “Obviously today we won so I’m very happy. I’m happy we played well and happy we are at the top. But like I said, it’s still a long way to go, there are big games coming up, so we have to focus on that, too.”

Both interviews directly contradict Raiola’s bombshell announcement in December when he claimed the Frenchman was unhappy at United and ready to leave.

It seems Pogba may have changed his mind on exiting this month, and is ready to commit himself to a team with genuine title aspirations.
