Paul Pogba tells Man United fans about Frank Lampard inspiration
The Man United star wants to emulate Frank Lampard's ability to score goals and create chances from midfield
Paul Pogba has revealed that he has been trying to emulate Frank Lampard’s style of play at Manchester United.
The Red Devils extended their winning run under interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to six games on Sunday evening.
Manchester United were 1-0 winners against third-placed Tottenham Hotspur thanks to Marcus Rashford’s 44th-minute winner.
The England star managed to collect Pogba’s incisive pass before Rashford finished instinctively past World Cup winner Hugo Lloris.
Pogba has scored four goals and has made four assists since Solskjaer took over the reins of the 20-time English champions last month.
The 25-year-old’s return to form has been credited with his advanced position in the Manchester United team, which has lessened his defensive responsibilities.
Pogba has contributed seven goals and seven assists in the current campaign to make the Frenchman one of the Premier League’s top attacking midfielders this season despite his struggles under Jose Mourinho.
Speaking to Sky Sports about his return to form, Pogba revealed that he has been drawing inspiration from Chelsea FC legend Lampard.
“The manager told me to get into the box because you will score goals if you get in the box,” Pogba said.
“My best example is Frank Lampard.
“He makes a lot of runs and he scores a lot of goals. If I can do that, I can make the play.”
Manchester United have won their last five Premier League games since Solskjaer took over the reins of the club from Mourinho last month.
The Red Devils managed to draw level on points with Arsenal thanks to their 1-0 win at Tottenham.
