Paul Pogba has emerged as one of Manchester United’s strongest performers this season. The 28-year-old made headlines last weekend when he registered four assists against Leeds United, becoming only the seventh player to do so in the Premier League.
Pogba sits pretty at the top of the assists charts with two games played and the France international was impressive once again against Southampton, despite United failing to bring all three points home to Old Trafford.
The former Juventus star also set a new Premier League record in the encounter at St. Mary’s as he became the first player to record five assists within the first two games of the season.
Now, he has been hailed as ‘a class above everybody else’ by BBC pundit and former England international Karen Carney.
“At the end of the day, footballers are all actors and actresses and they are coming into an arena to perform. That is what Paul Pogba is, he has got the tricks, the flicks, the passes,” she wrote on BBC.
“The way he looks, he has got an aura, a swagger about him. He will be loving this, every player wants to play in front a big crowd and he laps that up.
“He was a class above everybody else today both in and out of possession.”
There were suggestions during the summer that Pogba performed better for France than at club level but the player is swiftly putting that to bed with his output in Manchester United’s first two fixtures.
