Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has said that rivals Liverpool deserve all of their glory this season.
Jurgen Klopp’s Reds are edging ever closer to their maiden Premier League title this campaign, moving 22 points clear of Manchester City on Monday evening with a 3-2 victory against struggling West Ham United.
It is only a matter of time before the Merseysiders are confirmed as champions and despite turning out for the club’s great rivals Manchester United, Pogba has said that any silverware this season is richly deserved.
Talking to ESPN, the Frenchman said: “As a Manchester United player and with the rivalry between us, we don’t want them to win the title.
“We don’t want anyone else to win apart from us, but as a football lover and a respectful player to an opposition team, I have to say that they deserve to be where they are today.
“They are so way ahead of everyone else, they have not lost a single game yet this season in the league. They already have one hand on the Premier League trophy.
“They have been even better than last season when they won the Champions League and the season before when they [lost the final to Real Madrid].”
Whilst the Reds have been flying high throughout the majority of the campaign, United have struggled under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this season and are now at 5/2 with William Hill to secure a top four finish.
