Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba believes the huge difference between life under Jose Mourinho and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Manchester United is they are currently playing a style of football that suits the players.
Following the Red Devil‘s 4-1 triumph over Bournemouth on Sunday, United have won three consecutive games under Solskjaer since Mourinho’s last game – the 3-1 thrashing to Liverpool.
Manchester United have scored 12 goals in Solskjaer’s three Premier League games and have inspired the team with the attack-minded, and free-flowing football. The style of play has been essentially unique and different to that displayed amid Mourinho’s reign at Old Trafford, and Pogba feels Solskjaer’s strategies currently have United playing how they want to play.
In an interview with Sky Sports, Pogba said: “It’s different. We still won some games with the old manager, but it’s just a different style of play, more offensive, I would say, so we create more chances. So, we try to play like that. That’s how we want to play, we want to attack and that’s what we try to do on the pitch.
Maybe we just realised that we are Manchester United, we need to keep up, we need to be at the top of the league. The reaction of all the players, everybody enjoying themselves, that’s all we need. Everybody playing for each other and getting the result on the pitch.”
Meanwhile, Paul Pogba stats have improved drastically having scored more goals in three games under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer than he did in his last 17 appearances for Jose Mourinho.
