Paul Pogba already knows that the No.10 role at Manchester is no longer his, as it now belongs to Bruno Fernandes, Luke Chadwick has said. Luke recently revealed that the French midfielder is presently embracing competition for places in other midfield parts of the pitch.
According to him, Pogba’s done really well in the last few games, particularly the Aston Villa game, and he should have scored even more in recent weeks.
He added that the MUFC midfielders are currently focusing on getting the best out of each other.
His words, “Pogba’s done really well in the last few games, particularly the Aston Villa game.
“He’ll probably be annoyed at himself that he didn’t take a few chances in the box, but I think all the club’s top players are benefitting from more competition in the team.
“Pogba’s obviously realised that that number 10 position is no longer really his because Bruno Fernandes is going to start every game when he’s fit, and Fred and [Scott] McTominay have done well in those holding roles, [Nemanja] Matic is having a good influence as well.
“Pogba’s definitely put more of a shift in and I think that competition for places is bringing out the best in players, with that central midfield full of players pushing each other to get the best out of each other.”
“At left-back as well you see Alex Telles and Luke Shaw pushing each other, and Eric Bailly as well looking the part while Victor Lindelof is out injured.
“[Edinson] Cavani’s come in and scored goals, so there’s certainly competition bringing the best out of everyone and Pogba’s top of the list after his performances in recent weeks.”
