Paul Pogba hopes to use his experience to help the next generation of Manchester United players become the next Class of ’92.

The Red Devils have won 10 times and only lost once in 12 games under caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solksjaer since he replaced Jose Mourinho in December.

The Norwegian’s impact at Old Trafford has raised morale within the squad and has seen a notable improvement in form with Pogba.

Now the revitalised World Cup winner is hoping to help the younger players make the club “United” once more.

“I try to give my experience to the younger ones because I had the chance to play in the World Cup, I’ve played in a Champions League final and a Europa League final,” Pogba told The Sun.

“So I try to pass that on to the boys. It is the culture of this club, the generation of (David) Beckham, (Paul) Scholes, (Nicky) Butt, Gary Neville.

“When you come from the Academy you want to play for the first team and do great things.

“Now you have Marcus Rashford, still very young but talented and a top player, and me and Jesse Lingard who have been playing together for I don’t know how many years.

Sterling hopes the FA and the PL can tackle racism

During a Q&A for The Wall Street Journal's 'Future of Everything' festival on Tuesday, Raheem Sterling spoke about the fight against racism. Racism in football...

“I once heard that at this club ‘there is no age’. As long as you are ready to play for the team, then let the young players go and just prove themselves. That’s how it is. This is Manchester United. You have the chance at this club.

“Young players can come and prove themselves, enjoy themselves and then become top, top players in the first team.”

The French midfielder also paid tribute to Solksjaer, who returned to the club he once played for as a striker and has overseen large turnaround in results since his arrival.

“Ole has helped me a lot, just like he’s helped all the players. He just brings this happiness, this joy, to us all,” added Pogba.

“As an ex-United player he knows the culture, he knows everything about the club and he knows how to talk to the players as well. So it has really been a big help for me.

“It has been great to see all the players enjoying it, all playing and working together – and winning together.

“That’s what we want because we had a hard start this season. We have gained a bit and are coming back but there is still a lot more to do and we have to keep going.”

United will next face Chelsea on Monday at Stamford Bridge in the FA Cup for a fifth-round clash.
