Robbie Savage: This Man United player brings out the best of Paul Pogba
Robbie Savage says Michael Carrick is the man to bring out the best of Paul Pogba at Manchester United
Robbie Savage believes that Michael Carrick is the midfield partner to bring out the best of Paul Pogba at Manchester United.
Pogba arrived back at Old Trafford to much fanfare after he completed a world-record transfer to the club from Juventus.
However, most Manchester United fans are likely to agree that the French midfielder has not yet hit top gear for the Red Devils following his move back to the club.
There has been much debate about who is the right central midfield partner to help get the best out of Pogba under Jose Mourinho.
However, former midfielder Savage feels that Carrick has already proved himself to be that man with his displays so far this term.
Writing in his column for The Daily Mirror, Savage said: “At least the penny seems to have dropped with Mourinho that Michael Carrick brings the best out of world-record signing Paul Pogba.
“Carrick has started eight games this season, in which United have won seven and scored 22 goals.
“The facts speak for themselves.”
Manchester United finished fifth in the Premier League and won the FA Cup under Louis van Gaal last season.
The Reds are aiming to break back into the top four following Mourinho’s appointment at the club back in May.
