UTD Podcast: When Pogba almost fought Morrison
While discussing the Academy, Paul explains how a confrontation with team-mate Ravel Morrison made them firm friends...
Who were your team-mates in the youth team and Reserves? Jesse was there. Andreas was there as well. Adnan Januzaj. We were all neighbours as well. Ravel? I have a nice story with Rav. A few weeks after I arrived, and now we’re very good friends, but I will just tell you we almost fight – me and him. So it was I training and obviously everyone knows how good Rav is with the ball, so he was dribbling players. I took the ball from him and he got angry a bit and kicked me. I couldn’t speak English so I looked at him and that’s okay. I’ll wait until you get the ball [laughs]. I smashed him. He started talking to me in English and I responded in French. You know, okay we will see after in the changing room. Okay, no problem. I’m not scared of you. After, he came to me and hugged, you know, and, since then, we’re very close. It’s a strange story and funny but that happens a lot in football and now we’re very good friends.
