Pogba accepts France snub

Paul Pogba insists that he isn’t overly concerned with the fact that he continues to be ignored by France boss Didier Deschamps.

The teenager, 19, has been a revelation at Juventus in his first Italian season and that has led to calls that he should be handed his full international debut by his national side.

“I’m not disappointed with not being selected,” Pogba is quoted as saying in Tuttosport. “It’s not that serious if Deschamps doesn’t think I’m ready.

“I’ll continue playing my football and if he calls me up then he calls me up.”

Pogba has scored four goals in 15 League games for the Italian champions.

“Am I surprised to have played so much? Yes and no,” he continued. “It’s definitely what I wanted. I left Manchester United to play and that is happening at Juventus.”

The central midfielder again hit the headlines recently with two splendid strikes in the 4-0 win over Udinese.

“They were great goals, but a career can not consist of just that,” he added. “You have to keep confirming yourself.”
