Paul Pogba confessed that he’s enjoying playing football at Manchester United once more after struggling under Jose Mourinho

Following his then-world record arrival of €105m from Juventus in 2016, Pogba struggled to live up to his price tag with Mourinho at the helm.

The French midfielder’s struggles led him to being frequently benched during Mourinho’s final games in charge before he was replaced by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last month.

The Norwegian, who previously coached Pogba at the United reserves during his early days, has helped the 25-year-old rediscover his very best form.

Currently, Pogba has managed four goals and three assists in the four games he’s played under Solskjaer at United and was named the club’s Player of the Month for December.

“Obviously it’s good,” Pogba told the club website.

“The month before that [November] I wasn’t playing a lot so just being back on the pitch, playing and enjoying with the guys is good. It’s always good for me and I enjoy playing football and being with the guys.”

The France international hopes to see United extend their five-match winning run with Solskjaer heading into this Sunday’s Premier League match at Tottenham.

“We’re Manchester United so that [winning] should be a basic thing for us,” he said.

“Obviously we know that the Premier League is hard and we have a lot of games [to play] but those five games give us more confidence.

“Mentally we’re strong and ready. For the rest of the season, we just want to do the same and carry on like that.”
