Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba revealed that he asked permission from captain Wayne Rooney to take the penalty from which he opened the scoring in tonight’s 4-1 thrashing of Fenerbahce in the Europa League.
Speaking to BT Sport post-match, Pogba said: “We wanted the win because it was really important and now we are top of the group and are looking forward to the next game.
“I told Wayne (Rooney) I wanted to take the penalty and he let me. I am very happy to score that penalty and from a player like him to let me it is big respect so I am very glad.
“I feel comfortable with all of the team. It is just at the start of the season and there is still a long way to go and we want to go up and do our best and be top of the league.”
