Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has explained that Paul Pogba’s improved form in recent times is due to his playing faster.
The French international has often had a difficult time at Old Trafford and is generally considered to have failed to reach his true potential.
For the moment, though, Pogba looks like one of United’s fittest players, and he hit a superb long-range shot to help the Red Devils win 2-1 on the road to Fulham on Wednesday night.
Ferdinand is clearly impressed with what he is seeing from Pogba, and says it is a pleasure to see him when he plays at a faster pace.
Speaking about BT Sport’s coverage of the game, quoted by the MeterSaid the expert: “Today he (Pogba) did a fantastic performance.
“The big difference recently is that he’s been playing faster. He’s fast with what he’s doing, the efficiency is top-notch.
“He is a magnificent footballer and when he is in this form, he is one of the best.”
United fans will be hoping Pogba can keep it up and become more consistent, as they have seen glimpses of his brilliance before, only to have him boil again soon after.
