Former Manchester City and Barcelona midfielder Yaya Toure has revealed the reason why Pogba has been bright in recent games. The Frenchman fail out of favour with Jose Mourinho and ultimately lost in sharpness that made him the most converted midfielder back in the summer of 2017.

However the managerial shift of Manchester United from Jose Mourinho to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has seen the former Juventus midfielder regain his confidence and form in football matches. The Frenchman has contributed 8 goals in recent times with four goals and four assists.

Pogba prior to the replacement of Jose Mourinho with Solskjaer was already out of the starting lineup for the Red Devils.

Yaya Toure who has observed all the events leading to the resurge in form of the French international has heaped praise on Red Devils caretaker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for bringing out the best from the player.

 “To be honest, I think part of it is he has more belief in his manager and his manager put himself in the situation,” Toure told Sky Sports.

“He’s the boss; he has to push his teammates further. And he has the qualities to do that because I think when you see the World Cup in Russia, it was a big example.

“You caught some clips of him talking to his teammates in the dressing room. It was amazing. He was looking like a basketball player, trying to give a nice speech.

“He’s the type of player who wants to have that connection with his manager, being trusted by him and telling him to push. Feeling the love. I loved that. That’s good for United and that’s good for the fans because this kind of player always has to shine, they have to show their quality.

“I think, to be honest, a player like me, I just want to give more, produce more and I like the challenge. Sometimes it is very, very difficult to be able to deliver at your best position at the best qualities. Because you can’t say to go back to be like N’Golo Kante. It’s impossible.

“But what he can deliver is – when you see him at Juventus in the past, you see a lot of quality. He can shoot from far, he can dribble, he can kick passes like you saw this weekend against Tottenham. It’s what the fans want and it’s what a club like this are paying him for.”

Manchester United will be hoping to extend their 100 percent unbeaten run of form when Brightonvisits on Saturday.
