Pogba says he is ‘judged differently’ in snipe at critics

first_img0Shares0000Paul Pogba has endured his fair share of criticism this season but excelled in last weekend’s victory over Man CityLONDON, United Kingdom, Apr 27 – Paul Pogba says he is “judged differently” from other Premier League midfielders after a frustrating season that has seen him dropped by Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho on several occasions.The Frenchman was widely criticised for a lacklustre display in this month’s 1-0 home loss to West Bromwich Albion that handed the title to Manchester City — the latest in a long line of disappointing efforts from the former Juventus star since his move to United two years ago. There was even talk that Mourinho had told United to put Pogba up for sale, just days after City manager Pep Guardiola said he had been offered the chance to sign the midfielder by his agent in January.But the 25-year-old has produced some improved displays in recent weeks, including a man-of-the-match performance in the comeback win at Manchester City and is looking for more of the same when Arsenal visit on Sunday.“It’s quite funny because we don’t judge me on the midfield part,” Pogba, who joined the club for a then world record fee of £89 million ($123 million), told Sky Sports.“We judge me on assists and goals and that’s the truth. I can make an outstanding game, but if I don’t score or make an assist they will say, ‘that is normal’, or whatever.“But if someone else does it, it is different. They will maybe be man of the match. I think I’m judged differently, but it’s good.”The France international, who has scored five goals and made 10 assists in the Premier League this season, said he saw the criticism as a challenge and it helped him improve.“I don’t take it in a bad way,” he said. “I’ll try to score and make assists and that’s it. I still want to do my job in midfield.“If I can help the team in attack and defence and make a difference I will do it. If I can score and assist it is even better.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

It’s one for G. Valley

first_imgAnytime a high school wins its first varsity football game, it’s a historical event. But Golden Valley’s debut victory – a 24-14 triumph Saturday over visiting Salesian of Los Angeles – proved especially gratifying because nearly all of Golden Valley’s seven losses this season have been so one-sided. You can only imagine the thrill of victory when the agony of defeat has been losses by scores of 66-0, 67-14, 62-14, 56-7, etc. “After seven losses in a row, our coaches tell us to keep going but it’s hard,” said Martel Hammond, who sparked Golden Valley with 65 yards rushing, two receptions and a touchdown against Salesian. “I was really starting to wonder if we’d ever win a game. I’m still sore but it feels good.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week Corey Bryant, a converted punter who is Golden Valley’s fourth quarterback since spring practice began, started for the first time against Salesian, completing four of seven passes for 87 yards – and no interceptions. “It was bad losing all the time. Believe me, we were all tired of it,” Bryant said. “All year we’ve come back to school every Monday, and everyone would tell us we’re no good and that we should just quit. But today, everyone has congratulated us. We finally won a game, and it’s the best feeling in the world. It feels great.” Golden Valley, a seniorless second-year school, is playing a freelance schedule before joining the Foothill League beginning next fall. The Grizzlies finish this season at Carpinteria on Friday, followed with the finale Nov. 10 against St. Genevieve of Panorama City at Canyon High. “I think beating Salesian is a really good confidence booster because this team has overcome a lot of adversity,” coach Rob Swartz said. “For the first time, we made the plays we had to make in the second half, and the kids were just ecstatic.” Valencia High’s football team (6-2, 2-1 in Foothill League), coming off an emotional 17-14 loss to Hart last week, faces host Canyon (7-1, 3-0) in a showdown at 7 p.m. Friday. Canyon coach Harry Welch believes his team would be better off had Valencia won last week; instead, defending league champion Valencia will be extra hungry because another loss ruins all chances to win another title. “Now it’s going to be much more difficult because Valencia realizes they have to win. They’re going to be very motivated,” Welch said. “Plus, we haven’t played the opponents that Valencia has played. I think to say the least it’s going to be a formidable challenge for us.” Tyler Hawkins, Canyon’s returning all-league linebacker, is doubtful after suffering a concussion during the first play of a victory over Burroughs of Burbank last week. The Master’s College women’s basketball team, led by returning guards Grace Tappe and Kinsey Mittel and promising freshman forward Jennifer Ayers-Stamper, is No. 5 in the NAIA preseason rankings after finishing 26-6 last season. The Mustangs open the season Nov. 7 with a scrimmage at Cal State Northridge at 7 p.m. The Master’s men’s team (19-12), led by returning starter as Caleb Adcock and Ryan Read and UTEP transfer Giovonni St. Amant, open against Dominican University at 6 p.m. Friday in Oakland. Prized recruit Tomoreo Allen, who averaged 29.5 points last season at Highland High of Palmdale, signed with The Master’s in March but wasn’t able to meet academic entrance requirements, according to Master’s coach Bill Oates. Instead, Allen is playing community college ball at San Bernardino Valley College. Remember the name Danley Rodriguez, a 10-year-old football phenom who has rushed for 1,070 yards in eight games for the Canyon Country Outlaws. Rodriguez, coming off a 243-yard, four-touchdown performance against Ventura on Saturday, has rushed for 509 yards and eight TDs over the past two games.
