‘He has left himself open to criticism’ - Giggs hails Pogba

Mon 25 January 2021 | 11:53

The Red Devils legend has spoken about the French midfielder’s return to form.

Since his arrival at Old Trafford in 2016,

Paul Pogba

has failed to fulfill expectations. There have been flashes of brilliance in his play but the France international has struggled to maintain consistency. However,

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

’s recent experiments with Pogba’s position have resulted in unlocking the 27-year-old’s full potential. In an interview with

Stadium Astro

after the Red Devils’ 3-2 victory against

Liverpool

,

Ryan Giggs

has spoken about Pogba’s current form.

“When you set a standard that he has done, for France and Juve, and he comes to United and doesn’t really live up to the expectation, then you are open to criticism.

“I think he is a talent and he is a good lad as well. He gets a lot of criticism and I think that is down to some comments from his agent and just the fact he hasn’t been consistent since he joined United.

“Now we are starting to see some of that. Ole has been moving him around a little bit, off the left and right. He seems to now be hitting his best form, like a lot of the United players at the moment.”

Giggs added:

“When you are out wide, you have to track the full-back sometimes in midfield. He definitely let his runner go quite often in games, whereas out wide you can see it.

“Ole has tried him in a deep role, as a 10, and messed around with his role and is now reaping the rewards.

“His attacking play and defensive play have become more consistent. He is producing those goals we all know he is capable of.”
