Speaking during an exclusive 'Ask Man Utd' interview alongside teammates Phil Jones and Marcus Rashford, Pogba revealed how he staying sharp.

He said: “I have a little home gym in my house, I can do some training, some running, some bike, go outside and do some things with the ball. I am just keeping busy and keeping healthy.

“We have got to stay motivated, there is no other choice. It is a period and we don't know until when it will be like this, but I still have goals in my head and one day hopefully this [pandemic] will stop.

“And then we have to get back on the pitch, so we have to be ready. For myself, I have been out for a long time as well, so for me I just want to come back playing football.”

Pogba also offered some advice to young players stuck inside during the lockdown, adding: “My advice is to stay safe, stay at home and keep practising.

As well as keeping fit, Pogba is staying in touch with his United teammates as best as he can via the powers of technology, revealing: “I spoke with Eric, I spoke with Andreas (Pereira), I spoke with Victor (Lindelof), I spoke with Juan (Mata), Jesse (Lingard)...we all talk, we send messages and stuff like this. We keep in touch and we see everyone [on screen].

“If I had to isolate with somebody? Eric Bailly, for sure. He will make me laugh all day long!”
