KEY POINTS

  • Paul Pogba has been revitalized in the past few months with the addition of Bruno Fernandes
  • The duo of Fernandes and Pogba has been one of the key reasons for Manchester United's recent success
  • Pogba has high expectations from his teammates moving forward

The possible departure of Paul Pogba was one of the more consistent narratives Manchester United had to handle in previous seasons. But a lot has changed ever since the games resumed from the coronavirus suspension as Pogba has been revitalized with a fresh outlook.

The stellar play of Pogba as of late has been fantastic with the way the team has been performing. While it is expected that he would carry the offensive burden of the team, the addition of Bruno Fernandes has helped take the pressure off his shoulders.

For Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the cohesiveness of his club gives them a strong chance to rally for a possible Champions League berth. The club is currently fifth in the Premier League standings with a record of 16 wins, 10 draws and eight losses. They’ve won the last five of their six games

Per Red Devil Armada, Pogba’s refreshed outlook has been so positive that he expects a lot more also from his teammates.

“We have to always keep having the goal to improve ourselves and never get satisfied with what we did,” Pogba said.

As one of the veterans of the team, Pogba wants his teammates to be aggressive and constantly carry a hard-hitting pace on the field.

“You have to have this mentality, score a goal and do it again and again… Bruno, Rashy, Mason… hey if you got two goals, great, but go for three, why not,” Pogba added.

Whether it’s on the offensive or defensive end, Pogba demands from everyone to step up for their team’s colors.  

“You have to keep this mentality, keep a clean sheet too… we want to keep working on this and we have the mentality to do it,” Pogba concluded.

With the dynamic duo of Pogba and Fernandes leading the way, Manchester United is positioned for greater things moving forward.

The chemistry among the club has been strong as of late and continues to pull off phenomenal football on the field. It will be a crucial set of matches for Solskjaer’s squad and will test how Pogba’s leadership can propel the team in the deeper stretch of the season.
