Dressing Room Footage Shows 'Leader' Paul Pogba Giving Rousing Speech During Nations League Final

Paul Pogba may not wear the captain's armband for world champions France but the influential midfielder gave a rousing dressing room speech during the Nations League final.

The 28-year-old, who has been crucial for Manchester United so far this season, played a key role in his side's 2-1 victory against Spain on Sunday night as goals from Karim Benzema and Kylian Mbappe sealed the win.

Playing as part of a midfield two alongside the talented Aurelien Tchouameni, the in-form Pogba had more touches [77] than any France player on the pitch and made more tackles [3] than any of his teammates.


His influence on the pitch was there for all to see and days later, footage has emerged showing Pogba's impressive leadership qualities off the pitch, too.

As you can see in the clip below, the midfielder drops a passionate half-time speech to his teammates at 0-0.

Pogba says, as translated by @aaroncikaya: "We have to be aggressive. It starts from the front all the way to the back. We win the ball back and we attack. And yes we're going to run a lot because they have quality players, but so do we.

"We have to keep the ball and hurt them. Second half we have to be aggressive."


This isn't the first time Pogba has inspired his teammates in the dressing room. At the 2018 World Cup, footage of his speech before the incredible 4-3 second-round match against Argentina showed how much of a leader he is in Didier Deschamps' dressing room.

He then did this before the World Cup final against Croatia. Goosebumps.

Let us know your thoughts on Pogba's speech on Sunday night in the comments.
