Last season, for some odd reason, Paul Pogba came in for heavy criticism. I guess that his fee will always overshadow whatever he does on the football field, but he made a solid start to life back at Old Trafford. With that said, I reckon his second-season is going to be insane.
Once again, the French midfielder absolutely ran the show against Sampdoria in our final pre-season tour game. The 24-year-old has been one of the standout performers in every single friendly game thus far, and it’s scary just how talented he is.
Already, you can see that the arrival of Nemanja Matic has freed him up, and he ran the show against the aforementioned Italian side last night. Some of the passes he makes are out of this world, and when he mixes his on-ball brilliance with a little bit of trickery, it certainly gets the fans excited.
Social media was rightly buzzing about his display after the full-time whistle, and Pogba was receiving praise left, right and centre. We’ve compiled some of the best tweets about the former Juventus man below. Enjoy!

Paul Pogba is the best CM in the Premier League. Don't debate it, don't @ me. It is a fact.
