Ryan Giggs discusses Paul Pogba’s best position in Manchester United’s new looking frontline.
Giggs also talks how the atmosphere at Old Trafford has changed since his playing days.
Giggs: “I would say the forward line is as good as Manchester City’s, but the difference is the way of playing, with Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva behind consistently finding the front three for City.”
“I think his best position is where he’s on the left of a midfield three is where he’s at his best. He’s a brilliant crosser of the ball and I don’t think he’s as effective when he’s having to do more defensive work in central areas.”
“I would like to see him in a 4-3-3 formation with Matic sitting deep, Herrera to the right and Pogba to the left, with a selection of the front three thriving off more creativity behind them.”
“As a player you’ve got to be excited about the competition Manchester United have in the attacking areas now. If I was in the position of Marcus Rashford or Anthony Martial I would say that it would force you to raise your game significantly and that it is only healthy for competition in the team.”
