Manchester United under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been a joy to watch thus far.
The Red Devils have rediscovered their identity. This is a team that are now on the front-foot, scoring goals, playing with freedom and most importantly, having fun.
Perhaps the biggest beneficiary under the new regime so far is Paul Pogba. I think it’s fair to say that the Frenchman had given up playing under Jose Mourinho, but as soon as the self-proclaimed Special One was out of the door, we’ve seen a completely different player.
Today, Pogba has been speaking to the media about how United, as a whole, have been loving life under their new manager, because of their attacking philosophy.
“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].”
First and foremost, I’ll never fully forgive Pogba for downing his tools under Mourinho. The pride of playing for the badge should outweigh the negativity he had towards his manager.
With that said, you just have to love how well he’s playing at the moment. Pogba is at the heart of everything good, and he has been outstanding every single time he has taken to the field over the last month or so.
Just look at that pass he played into Marcus Rashford for the goal against Tottenham, it truly was a thing of beauty.
As he says, though, he’s not the only one who is enjoying it far more under this new regime. Everyone just seems to have been given a new lease of life, and if this form continues from now until the season’s end, then maybe, just maybe, we can sneak into the top four…
