Paul Pogba speaks out about his partnership with Nemanja Matic

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba insists he feels less worried this season with new signing Nemanja Matic alongside him.

He joined from Chelsea last month for £40 million and has been sensational, showcasing why he was a bargain in the current market with an impressive display in the 4-0 victory over West Ham last weekend.

The Serbian is a proven Premier League winner and allows Pogba to get more creative in his role without having to worry about tracking back and defending as much.

Speaking about his new midfield partner, Pogba insists he’s feeling good.

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

“Last season the first question from everyone was always all about the price tag. Now everyone is asking about the football. That tells you everything.

“When you know the team more you know how to play alongside them. You get on better. You just get a different feeling. You can see against West Ham everybody was getting along well and playing for each other.

“It was an excellent start to the season but what matters is the end. We have started well but we have to carry on like this. Matic was a key player and Romelu scored two goals so it is what we wanted and what we expect. But it is only one game.”

Pogba was excellent against West Ham and it’s clear fans are in for a treat this season as Matic is at Old Trafford to set him free in his role.

It’s like his set up at Juventus and Jose Mourinho has done well to continue to get the best out of him.
