After Covid-19 will “turn dragon”?
Express newspaper revealed, coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is ready to welcome Pogba back, even intending to hold private tactical meetings with his beloved son during the time off. Specifically, the Norwegian strategist wants to use the boy in a whole new role.
Pogba’s preferred position is to deviate the midfield in the 4-3-3 chart or to the household in the 4-3-2-1 scheme. However, recently, MU is sublimating with the 3-4-1-2 scheme, in which rookie Bruno Fernandes is too good to play the “conductor” role that Pogba left.
Landing MU from Sporting Lisbon in the winter transfer period, the Portugal midfielder has for himself 3 goals, 4 assists after 9 games, contributing to the unbeaten MU throughout this time. Therefore, Solskjaer was forced to find the best way to use Pogba without “stomping” on Bruno Fernandes.
