Paul Pogba provided the assist to the only goal scored on Sunday evening against Tottenham. While speaking with newsmen after the match, he explained that it was difficult for him to play with the tactics Manchester United were using before Solskjaer came on board. Obviously, the former Juventus player was taking an aim at Mourinho with whom he lost favor while in charge of the team.
Pogba explained, “I love playing big matches and against the best players. That’s where we improve and progress. It was a big one for us. Everyone played well.
“I’m enjoying playing football. It was really difficult with the tactics we used to play. I like to play more attacking. Defending is not my best attribute.
“The manager told me to get in the box, get goals. My best example is Frank Lampard, he’s the one who makes those runs.
“That’s what we want, that’s why we play, we need to keep it up, we won today and got three points.”
When asked about how he feels about the assist he made in the match, Pogba said,
“It’s a great ball. But we’ve been training on this. We knew that was the weakness of Tottenham.
“We needed to attack on the opposite side, that’s what we did and we scored a goal. We knew it would be very difficult, we knew we could hurt them on the counter.
“He (Rashford) makes a great run, he helped me for the pass, I tried to give him the perfect pass.”
United are now six points adrift the fourth position in the English Premier League and would be Hoping to close the gap as soon as possible.
