Manchester United’s mercurial midfielder Paul Pogba has revealed that Kevin de Bruyne is one of the midfielders he loves to watch and tries to learn from.
The Frenchman has enjoyed a new lease of life at United since caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took the reigns at Old Trafford, showing the form that persuaded United to splash out £90m to bring him back to the club in 2016.
Pogba has four goals and four assists in his last five games, but that hasn’t stopped the 25-year-old from striving to improve.
In an interview with Astro Sport the World Cup winner has shared that he loves watching football as well as just playing.
“I love football, I love watching players and maybe people will be surprised. When I was younger I used to look up to strikers but now I’m a midfielder I look up to midfield players.” Read More Paul Pogba can equal Cristiano Ronaldo Manchester United record against Brighton
