Paul Pogba reveals depression fight
Paul Pogba says he has struggled with depression since his tempestuous period at Manchester United under Jose Mourinho.
Speaking to Le Figaro ahead of France’s friendly with Ivory Coast on Friday, Pogba said: “I’ve had depression in my career, but we don’t talk about it.
“Sometimes you don’t know you are, you just want to isolate yourself, be alone. These are unmistakable signs.
“Personally, it started when I was with Jose Mourinho at United. You ask yourself questions, you wonder if you are at fault because you have never experienced these moments in your life.
“All top athletes go through these moments but few talk about it. Inevitably, you will feel it [depression] in your body, in your head, and you may have a month, even a year, where you are not well. But you don’t have to say it. In any case publicly.
“Because you make money, you always have to be happy? It’s not like that, life. But, in football, it does not pass, we are, however, not superheroes, but only human beings.”
