Premier League


The Red Devils French star,

Paul Pogba

has played an important role in the team’s recent victories.

Now Man Utd former striker,

Dimitar Berbatov

has talked about Pogba’s recent performances.

"It's been a long time since I've seen him open on the pitch fighting, intercepting, reading the game,"

Berbatov said.

"In the game against Liverpool, again, he continued on that trend for me. He was solid on the pitch again, trying to read and control the game, defending and intercepting.

"The chance that fell to him was because he was again in the box trying to score, though it didn't happen this time. Next time, it's going to happen.

"But as I said many times before, I hope that the TV soap opera over him - whether he's going or staying - is going to end, and we're not going to speak about that.

"I would like him to stay because I knew him back in the day, he was coming to train with us when he was still very young. You could see the talent straight away.

"If he's concentrated 100 per cent for the team, then he's on a level I think not many players can reach in the way he does."
