Manchester United now a 'proper team', says Paul Pogba

Paul Pogba has claimed that an improving Manchester United is now a "proper team" as they close in for a Champions League spot next season. 

The Red Devils are on a 17-game unbeaten run in all competitions and have a chance to leap frog Chelsea and Leicester into third place in the Premier League if they win against Southampton on Monday evening.

Pogba, who missed a large chunk of the season, now says that players were now pulling in the same direction.

"Like I said before, it's about the team," he said. "You can call it a proper team. Sometimes before, we were maybe too defensive or too offensive and we didn't have this balance or this control.

"Now you can see we have that balance and there is more structure and we've been working hard on that. The improvement is huge and you can tell that."

"United is about trophies, we know that," he said. "And there are trophies we know we can get and we can win.

"We don't want to let this opportunity go away. We're going to do our best to go and get those two trophies by giving everything.

"We feel great. That is the mentality now -- you have a positive mentality when you have a good result, but you also have to have the ability to get through the games like we did in the last few games."

Man United are still in the hunt for FA Cup and Europa League glory.
