Rio Ferdinand explains Paul Pogba’s turnaround in form

Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has hailed Paul Pogba’s recent upturn in form and has highlighted the Frenchman’s quick-play as the main reason why he’s doing so well.

Ferdinand, now retired, knows better than most what it takes to be a success at Old Trafford.

The legendary defender turned out for United from 2002 – 2014 during a 12 year period which saw the Englishman lift a whopping 16 major trophies, including six Premier League titles.

Now retired from playing and working as a top pundit on BT Sport, Ferdinand watched on as his old club side retained top-spot in the league after beating Fulham 2-1 during Wednesday night’s clash at Craven Cottage.

Yet another fine performance from midfielder Pogba helped secure all three-points for the Red Devils.

The World Cup winner popped up with the game’s winning goal after a stunning long-range strike gifted his side the lead mid-way through the second-half.

Speaking after the game live on air with BT Sport, as quoted by Metro, Ferdinand said: “The big difference recently is he’s been playing quicker. He’s quick with what he’s doing, the efficiency is top, top drawer.

“He is a magnificent footballer and when he’s in this form, he’s one of the best.”

United’s world-class midfielder’s continued impressive form is quickly becoming vital to their surprising title charge.

Keep us dreaming, Pogba.

    Isn’t it weird, Pogba’s form goes up just when Bruno’s form goes down, if only they could both have improvement in form at the same time!
