Manchester United broke the world record transfer fee to sign Paul Pogba over the summer, just a few years after letting the Frenchman head to Juventus for peanuts. I think it’s fair to say the 24-year-old has had a mixed debut season; but more positive than negative.
In an attacking sense, he has been nothing short of sensational to watch at times. Some of the chances he can create out of nothing are just ridiculous, and if his teammates could finish I’ve no doubt he’d have had loads of assists to his name.
Now Pogba has been speaking to the media about everything United, including one of his teammates Marouane Fellaini – whom he had great praise for, before adding that he’s like a big brother to him.
“We get along together.” Pogba is quoted as saying by the Daily Star.
“He has big experience in the Premier League.”
“He is like a big brother to me and helps me get experience in the Premier League.”
This is just great to read. Marouane Fellaini tends to come in for quite a lot of slack from the Old Trafford crowd whenever he’s on the field, and I just don’t get it.
Personally, I like him. He’s never the worst player on the pitch and he fits Mourinho’s style of play down to a tee. The Belgian always does what he’s told, and in the right system he really can flourish. Hearing his teammates come out and give backing to Fellaini is brilliant, and it’ll definitely give him that extra bit of confidence going into the business end of the season.
