Picture: Key Man United superstar named in Garth Crooks’ BBC Team of the Week

Manchester United have gotten back to winning ways under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who is seemingly beginning to get the best out of his stellar players.

Without question, the Red Devils’ biggest superstar is Paul Pogba. The Frenchman was massively struggling under Jose Mourinho towards the end of his tenure at Old Trafford, but he’s already enjoying a huge upsurge in form.

After picking up three assists against Cardiff City, Pogba followed that up with a brilliant second-half brace to sink Huddersfield Town. For his display, the 25-year-old earned himself a spot in Garth Crooks’ BBC Team of the Week.

Sitting alongside stellar names like Eden Hazard and Heung-Min Son, Pogba had an exceptional outing on Boxing Day.

He was the heartbeat of United’s midfield from first minute till last, and it really does feel like a change in manager has completely turned his fortunes around.

While it is brilliant to see him performing so well, I must admit that I’m a little frustrated with him for not fighting his hardest for the previous manager, though. I would go as far as saying that the fall-out with Pogba was key to Mourinho’s downfall, but it just goes to show that football is now completely different as to what it was ten years ago. Imagine if Pogba tried that under Fergie?
