Manchester United star, Paul Pogba who recently came back into action after spending two months out with injury.
The midfielder was sidelined after suffering a hamstring injury against Basel in Manchester United’s Champions League opener, which impeded his bright start to the season.
He returned into action in the 4-1 thumping of Newcastle at Old Trafford two weeks ago, getting an assist and a goal to show United what they’d been missing.
His tally of three goals and three assists in the Premier League this term means he has already nearly equalled his tally of five and four from last term, which shows the influence he is beginning to have on the team.
Much of the credit can be given to the arrival of Nemanja Matic from Chelsea, whose defensive ability gives Pogba more freedom to get forward and impact the attacking side of things.
While Paul Pogba may be enjoying the action, he has revealed the part of Jose Mourinho’s training sections he likes least.
Mourinho who has developed a reputation for being one of the most tactical managers the world of fotball has ever seen, and as a result puts a lot of attention to detail in training on that area.
However, Pogba revealed that he and the rest of the United squad aren’t the biggest fans of his tactical preparation before a game, as they have to work without the ball.
“My favourite part is the game at the end of the session,” he admitted. “The worst is the same for everyone I think – the tactics.
“Defensive tactics because you just have to drill, you don’t have the ball.
“I always learned playing with my friends. When you come from where I come from it was like two-v-two, three-v-three.
“It was physical and technical so I always loved it. I always loved the beautiful tekkers, the nice skills.”
While he may not enjoy the training, it certainly paid off last year as Mourinho guided United to the EFL Cup and Europa League trophies, the latter securing qualification to this season’s Champions League.
United all-but secured qualification without Pogba, and barring a mathematical miracle the Red Devils will go through as group winners.
Judging by the clip recorded of the Frenchman training for his country, he wasn’t lying about enjoying the ‘tekkers’.
