Plenty of Manchester United fans believe that midfielder Paul Pogba should play in the number 10 role in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side in order to get the best out of him.
While at Juventus, he thrived on the left-hand side of a midfield three, where he was allowed to maraud forward and get into the opposition penalty area.
He took this role during United’s victory against Manchester City in 2018, as the Frenchman helped his side take three points from their neighbours.
With Pogba returning it would be foolish for Solskjær to drop Fred for him. Rather, he should accept the fact that Lingard, Pereira and Mata are not good enough to occupy the no. 10 spot and insert Pogba into that position.

Solskjaer has been unable to implement this tactic as the France international has been out of action since September due to an ankle injury, and underwent rehabilitation in Miami.
Many supporters were in agreement about Pogba’s best role in the team and made their feelings clear on social media.
Here you will find some of the best comments from Manchester United fans:
Solskjaer surely has to see this!

just play Pogba at 10. he should remember that the midfield 3 Matic-Herrera-Pogba that he used was successful during his early man utd days, and now he can use Scott-Fred-Pogba and see what happens

Pogba would thrive with Fred and Mctominay for defencive cover behind him.

Exactly this. Let the man play freely. He is creative as hell and could be the real difference maker for us when he returns.
