Many may not know Paul Pogba as an inspirational speech guy but he seems to have adopted that approach during the just concluded World Cup especially before their round of 16 game against Argentina.
The Les Blues won the game 4-3 but it is his speech that have got people surprised. Here is what he said:
“I want to see warriors on the field guys,” Pogba told his team-mates in a scene from a documentary aired by TF1. I don’t want to go home!We will finish happy! I want to party tonight. I want to be dead on the field, all together! I want men, warriors, soldiers.Today we will ‘kill’ them. Messi or no Messi I don’t care! We came to win this f*****g World Cup!”
In their quarterfinal against Uruguay he said before the start of the game to his teammates:
“That’s it, there is no turning back anymore.That’s it! We’re going to continue, we’re gonna go all the way! See you on July 15th – all together! Today Blaise is on the bench, he’s disappointed, he’s annoyed! He wants to play more than anyone else on the pitch! He’s bummed! It’s for guys like him that we fight today! He’s not going to be there on the pitch, but it will be as if he was there with us. Everyone needs to bring their A game!”
“And now we’re going to fight for our partners, like we did before! Argentina and maybe even more! Even more! Always more! We have to beat the best to be the best!”
Pogba scored in their 4-2 final victory against Croatia as they lifted their second World Cup in their history. He also had the chance to dab with President Macron.
