Mathias Pogba: Looking forward to playing in League One after joining Crewe from Wrexham
Mathias Pogba is looking forward to the opportunity to play at a higher level following his move to Crewe Alexandra from Wrexham.
The striker rejected a new deal with Conference club Wrexham in order to sign a two-year contract, with the option of a further 12 months, with Crewe on Friday.
He is delighted to have the chance to play in League One next season and the 21-year-old believes he is ready to test himself outside the non-league ranks.
"It is a great opportunity for me to come and join a good club like Crewe," Pogba told the club's official website. "My agent rang me to tell me that Crewe were interested in me and I knew that this would be the club for me.
"I have spent time in the Conference and now I feel as though I am ready to make the step up. Having the chance to play in League One was the big factor for me because as a player you want to play as high as you possibly can.
"I really enjoyed my time at Wrexham and they gave me a chance but I want to test myself at a higher level.
"I managed to score goals for Wrexham and I want to do the same at Crewe. I can play anywhere across the front and have played on the wing in the past. I would describe myself as powerful and quick, and I like to score goals."
