“Pogba Finally Now Playing With His Brain” – Scholes
Manchester United legend, Paul Scholes, has said that Paul Pogba is finally using his brain to play the game under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Pogba was underwhelming in the first half of the season while playing under Jose Mourinho. The two had a rather nasty falling out which saw Pogba in and out of the team, until the results got too bad for Mourinho to keep his job and he was fired.
Since the departure of the Portuguese, Pogba has been like a man reborn, scoring 4 goals in as many games.
Scholes speaking to Radio 5 expressed joy at the fact that the Frenchman has found his mojo again and he credited Solskjaer as being the man to make that happen.
“It’s difficult. Obviously that’s what Ole has done.
“I’m not sure that [Massimiliano] Allegri at Juventus would have had that kind of attitude with him.
“I think it’s just down to the player. I’ve been one of his biggest critics and I hated doing it, but the reason I was doing it is because I’ve played alongside the lad.
“I’ve seen over the years what a talent this player is. For the first part of this season and probably last year he was playing for himself.
“I think he lost total respect for the manager, which I don’t agree with totally.
“Now he’s playing with his brain and he’s using the quality he has. You’ve seen the last 8-10 games what a player he is and what a player he can be.”
