Cape Town - Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba admits
it was difficult to watch from the sidelines as his team lost to Bournemouth on
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side have picked up just five Premier
League points from the last 18 available after slipping to Saturday's 1-0 loss
at the Cherries.
United appeared to be building some momentum on the back of
three successive away wins in three different competitions but their mini
revival was ended at the Vitality Stadium by former player Joshua King.
The south coast setback leaves the Red Devils with only 13 points
from 11 top-flight games - their lowest total at this stage of a season for 33
years - and piles pressure back on manager Solskjaer.
Pogba FaceTimed RMC Sport to give an update on his injury
situation and commented on the result during the interview.
Pogba said: "I'm gutted. To see the team, lose without
being able to play is the worst. I would like to be back to help them, but the
most important thing is to heal."
Defender Harry Maguire offered no excuses for defeat in
Dorset and is demanding an immediate response during Thursday's Europa League
clash against Partizan Belgrade and Sunday's league meeting with Brighton.
"Of course, it's a setback. It's a defeat, we don't
like defeats," the England international told manutd.com.
"Wherever we play, we go to play for three points. It's
"The four away games in 11 days, or whatever it is, is
tough for the boys. But no excuses we felt good physically, we felt good
mentally. We were going in with confidence.
"We've got to now get our heads down and we look
forward to Thursday and then another big game before the international break
where we must bounce back."
