Paul Pogba has said that Manchester United have ‘more of a structure,’ under new manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Manchester United have had a drastic turnaround in fortunes since the departure of Jose Mourinho, who had led the club to the worst start to a season in almost 30 years, leaving the club 19 points off the top of the table and 11 points off the top four.
Mourinho was of course replaced by club legend Solskjaer, who has restored the Red Devils to winning ways, winning six games on the spin, and has done so in impressive style, scoring 17 goals and conceding just three.
The arrival of Solskjaer has seen the likes of Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba really thrive, as the Norwegian rediscovered United’s heritage of playing attacking and exciting football.
Pogba has four goals and four assists in his last five outings and speaking about his side’s upturn in form, the Frenchman has said that the players are playing with more attacking structure:
“The way we are playing we have more possession of the ball. We know more where to attack and where to go. We have more of a pattern of play and more of a structure,” Pogba told Sky Sports News.
“That makes it easier for everyone. So I would not say it is only myself. Yes, I have scored a few goals and had a few assists but it is all the team [that deserves credit].”
Manchester United’s run, combined with results elsewhere, has seen them close the gap on fourth-placed Chelsea to just six points, while they have drawn level on points with Arsenal.
