and thinks that Pogba can play an important role in any success they achieve.

Fernandes told NBC Sport about his French teammate:

“The relationship I have with Paul is good.

“He speaks Italian and I speak Italian, from the beginning I knew him from Italy and he knows me. It was easy to work with him.

“Straight away when I arrived, he was injured. I saw him recovering and training on the pitch away from us.

“He was calling me sometimes when I was training and he said: 'I'm seeing the games, I'm seeing your movement, don't worry. When I'm fit, I will show you that I can find you. I see you move, you move to the right and to the left, in behind. When I come back, I will show you how I can find you a lot.'

“It shows you the confidence he gives to you, like when he comes back, he's trying to help you become better and you help him to become better.”

Pogba has been facing criticism because of his poor performance in this season and here is what Fernandes thinks about the matter.

“We ended the [2019-20] season really well playing together. But of course the beginning of the season was hard for Paul because he had Covid.

“We know it's not a joke, it's hard to come back after 15 days isolated doing nothing.

“It was really difficult for Paul to find his form but I think he's much better and feeling much more confident.

“The goal against West Ham gave him much more confidence. The team needs him and he has the quality to help us.”
