Former Manchester United player Danny Higginbotham thinks that the club should build their team around Paul Pogba. Pogba gave a Man of the Match performance against Leicester City. Pogba also scored the first goal of this season’s Premier League. Jose Mourinho lauded his performance, calling him a ‘monster’.
Higginbotham said, “It’s about Paul Pogba again. Everyone is talking about him. I think he is a phenomenal player. It’s about giving him a licence to get forward, to go and create, to go and join in as well because he is such an important player for them.
One hundred per cent I would be building the team around him. I think it was a very good idea to give him the captaincy last week against Leicester and I really think he took that in his stride.”
The former Manchester United player added, “He is a player that has everything. I would like to see him more in the attacking sense and having that insurance behind him. I think sometimes people want to have a little bit of a go at him because of the way he may act off the pitch. Personally, as an individual, I don’t care. When he’s performing on the football pitch you go and do whatever you want to do, to a certain extent.
Pogba creates problems for the opposition’s defence. He makes sure an opposition back four or back three gets disjointed by his runs from midfield.The more that he can do that this season the more joy he will have personally and I think the more joy Manchester United will have on the goal scoring front.”
Manchester United play their next League game against Brighton and Hove Albion on Sunday.
