Paul Pogba says Matic has helped him play attractive football again

Paul Pogba looked like a man of old against West Ham in Premier League day match-day one last weekend.

The Manchester United midfielder’s defensive duties were at a minimum, as new signing Matic slotted perfectly alongside Pogba.

Pogba has told reporters that Matic has him playing sexy football again. The Frenchman was able to move forward freely, knowing that Matic would cover his defensive duties.

“Against West Ham, Matic was starting behind and I could worry more about attacking,” Pogba told the Telegraph. “I feel good playing that way,’ he told the Telegraph.

“I feel good playing that way.”
