Pogba said United had a good game considering the quality of opposition they faced, adding that they gave them a run for their money in the game.

"It was a good game, obviously we're playing against Barcelona, one of the best teams in the world," SportKeeda quoted Pogba telling reporters after the match.

"But we gave them some problems as well, they gave us some problems but we know where we can hurt them.

"Now it's one leg gone, we have the other one and we're going to give everything in this one. We're going to do everything we can to make it happen and we believe it.

"They didn't really have a lot of chances, maybe one when David [De Gea] made a great save. But after that they weren't that dangerous, not a lot of chances."

Asked if he expected to see so many cracks in Barca's game, Pogba replied: "That's what we saw in the videos.

"We know that they are a very, very strong team offensively. One of the best in the world of course. But all teams have flaws. We know what their flaws are so we're going to target that next game."

Meanwhile, some Man United fans want Paul Pogba sold after seeing the way he greeted Lionel Messi when they were exchanging pleasantries before the kick off as reported by the Mirror.

The midfielder, who was adjudged to have had a poor performance in the meeting got the club supporters furious most especially after their club suffered a slim defeat to the La Liga side.

One of the fans tweeted: "Pogba hugging Messi and the Barca players with too much vigour... playing politics for the move."
