Former Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been discussing Paul Pogba’s recent return to form in the last few weeks.
The Frenchman has seen a resurgence since Jose Mourinho was replaced by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the former Juventus star has scored five goals and provided four assists in six games under the Norwegian.
Zlatan said of Pogba’s revival, according to ESPN:
“We are seeing [a] more happy Paul, more free Paul, more ‘do whatever you want to do,’ and he is succeeding with things now.”
“It’s like new energy, new blood came in, and now he is playing like he knows how to play. And we know who Pogba is, and this is the Pogba we are seeing.”
“When you play, happiness is very important, because when you feel stuck in a situation, you don’t express yourself 100 percent and play 100 percent.”
Ibrahimovic, who won the 2018 MLS Newcomer of the Year award after finding the back of the net 22 times in 27 games after arriving to the Major League Soccer (MLS) in March, recently re-signed a new contract with the Galaxy for the 2019 season.
