"That's my way of thinking - we should move better, yeah", he submitted.
United are now seventh in the table with 10 points from their six games so far this season. "I think we are going to be a better team".
Even as he stopped to talk in the wake of United's latest troubled outing at Old Trafford, exasperation writ large on his face, the France midfielder seemed to be caught in two minds about precisely how much he should say, and how far he should go.
Pogba is simply speaking the truth when he says United need to be more attacking. They play like I like to play which is like the World Cup final.
Former Bolton Wanderers manager, Sam Allardyce has said that Manchester United are in danger of missing out on the Premier League top-four this season.
"We should just attack and press, like we did against Tottenham, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal last season".
United come up against Frank Lampard's Derby County on Tuesday night in the Carabao Cup, a game which should see some fringe stars get the chance to play.
The longest he went without scoring during his time at Arsenal was 897 minutes, so we know he can bounce back, but those green shoots of recovery are proving pretty hard to spot at the moment. "Maybe we should have showed more hunger..." We want to play every game like it is the last game of our lives.
Some reports have interpreted Pogba's comments as undermining Jose Mourinho's instructions to the team, perhaps prompting the tweet Pogba sent early on Monday afternoon.
