After going through a huge turn around in form following the installment of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the caretaker manager, the Norwegian gaffer has revealed that he is only maximizing Paul Pogba’s potential at Manchester United.
Pogba endured a torrid time in the first half of this season under Jose Mourinho which led to him being stripped of this vice-captaincy role at the club. The Frenchman was also benched on a number of games including the 3-1 loss to Liverpool that marked the final game of Mourinho’s reign at Old Trafford. Pogba will be looking to star in the clash this Sunday having missed the first leg.
Solskajer revealed that Pogba will start in the clash against Liverpool and also spoke on how he has transformed the former Juventus midfielder, “He’ll play! I was asked wasn’t I, and I’ve been quoted so many times if you build your team around Paul Pogba, I said a couple of years back, but you don’t think you’re gonna get this job! He’s a top, top player I’ve always liked, ever since I saw him as a kid. He’s World Cup winner, he’s a leader in the dressing room, on the pitch he wants the ball all the time.
“My idea was to get him playing to the best of his abilities as an attacking midfielder. You saw PSG man marked him, other teams probably will, if Liverpool do he will have experienced that, because that’s what PSG did, stopped Paul and created space for others. We need to be ready for others.”
