Paul Scholes names Paul Pogba’s best position for Manchester United

2 min read

Paul Scholes believes Paul Pogba is at his best on the left side of a front three.

The World Cup winner has played in a variety of positions under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Manchester United and is arguably enjoying his best season since his return to Old Trafford.

Scholes believes that Pogba thrives from the freedom that playing on the left gives him, as opposed to playing in a midfield two.

Speaking on BT Sport ahead of United’s game against Granada, Scholes said that Pogba can produce moments of quality to win matches even when he is not playing at his best.

Yet he argued that United need more consistency from the 28-year-old if they are to challenge for major honours.

He said: “You can’t doubt the lad’s ability. I think that Milan game when he came on in that left-hand position of the front three, I think that’s probably his best position.

“It just gives him that freedom for him to do what he wants, express himself, and when he was brilliant at Juventus – that was where he played . When he’s in the two in midfield, he gives you great quality, of course he does.

“He wasn’t great against Brighton, but if his concentration is on it, he can produce moments that will win games of football and that’s why he cost so much money.

“But the problem is: he doesn’t do it often enough, he might do it two out of five games. If you want to win leagues, big trophies, that’s not enough and a player of his ability should be doing more.”
