What Will Happen To Man Utd When Pogba Returns – Owen Reveals


Former Manchester United midfielder, Owen Hargreaves has backed Paul Pogba to regain his place in the team upon return from injury.

Hargreaves believes that the solid performances from Fred and Scott McTominay in recent matches will not stop the Frenchman, whose return, according to him, would benefit Cristiano Ronaldo.

Manchester United started their new life under manager Ralf Rangnick on Sunday at Old Trafford with a 1-0 victory against Crystal Palace, thanks to a second-half strike from Fred.

After the game, Rangnick praised both Fred and his midfield partner McTominay but Hargreaves feels the side will benefit from the return of the injured Pogba.

He pointed out that Pogba can supply the passes into Ronaldo and United’s other attackers, who were ‘quiet’ against Palace.

“If Pogba plays instead of, say, Fred or McTominay and United are playing in one half, then you’ve got another guy that can play a pass into Cristiano Ronaldo,” Hargreaves told Premier League Productions.

“So I thought they played okay, but Marcus [Rashford] was really quiet today, Bruno [Fernandes] was pretty quiet today.

“The full-backs were a big feature. The squad depth is amazing, it’s really, really good.

“So getting those guys, Varane and Pogba, into the side, United have easily one of the strongest teams in the Premier League, but they need to start playing like it. And I thought today was a decent step towards that.”
