Pogba Should Be Given Freedom To Roam – Gary Neville

Manchester United great Gary Neville believes boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should keep on playing Paul Pogba as a left sided attacking midfielder.


The French World Cup winner was given freedom in midfield against Burnley at Turf Moor, where he excelled and got the only goal in a 1-0 win.


“I really think Pogba’s far better when he plays off that left-hand side forward position because it frees him up,” Neville said about Pogba during commentary for the game.


“It makes him more like a maverick, he can go and do his little one-on-ones, his little tricks.


“I think when he plays deeper, he sometimes stands still and plays and tries to look for the killer pass too early. Sometimes it comes off, but sometimes he gets too deep.


“I’ve been critical of Paul Pogba at times in the last few years because I felt like he’s nowhere near his standard, but he’s been the best player on the pitch in this second-half for United.


“Quite often, Bruno Fernandes gets the plaudits, but his aerial play has been fantastic for Manchester United in these last few weeks, winning headers in the centre of midfield and he gets forward after it.


“It’s such a true strike – he gets a little bit of help with the deflection – but take nothing away from him. His influence in the second-half has been big.”
