Manchester United’s season has really been a tail of two managers this term, with Jose Mourinho and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer having hugely different spells with the club.
The appointment of Norwegian Solskjaer has proved to be a masterstroke by t.he Red Devils, and his energy, enthusiasm, and ability to get the best out of his players leaves a lot to be admired.
And one key thing we here in the Tavern feel that the former United striker has managed to do is get the best out of influential midfielder Paul Pogba, who has been nothing short of superb since being moved further up the field following Mourinho’s sacking.
There has never really been a question of if Pogba has the ability to dominate games, it’s just he has never shown it for United until now.
His displays in recent weeks have been mature in nature, while he is also affecting the game where it matters in terms of notching goals and assists.
We have seen his form for France prove how good he can be, and he is finally showing that sort of ability in the Red of United, meaning trophies can’t be too far away for the Red Devils if he can continue to dominate in the middle of the field.
Of course, United do need some more quality added to the squad this summer if they are serious about competing, but with Pogba playing as he is and growing in confidence week by week, there’s every chance that the glory days could be on their way back to Old Trafford sooner, rather than later.
