Henry: Man Utd Are Using Pogba Incorrectly

Published

on

Former France international Thierry Henry believes Manchester United will get more out of Paul Pogba once they start using him more effectively.

The midfielder has come in for some heavy criticism since his world record move from Serie A giants Juventus to Old Trafford, which cost the Red Devils about £89.3 million (R1.5 billion), at the beginning of the 2016/17 campaign.

Henry believes that the 24-year-old has not shown his best form because he has been playing far too deep under Jose Mourinho.

« It was always going to be difficult for Paul Pogba, » Henry said via Sky Sports.

« They don’t use Pogba where he should be playing – he’s not a holding midfielder. He likes to play higher or off the left. You lose a bit of him when he plays deeper.

« When you have a price tag like his, people are always going to talk. It could be good if someone comes in during the summer with a bigger price tag, then people might leave Pogba alone.

« I think his second season can be better. He’s got much more to offer. »

Pogba has made 50 appearances for the Old Trafford club this season, scoring eight goals and assisting six further strikes.

Wenger: Iwobi is a pleasure to work with… the boy loves football

Published

on

Arsene Wenger, Arsenal FC manager, has praised the Super Eagles forward Alex Iwobi over the improvement in his game.

He said the Nigerian striker’s love of football makes him a “pleasure to work with”.

Wenger said Iwobi, who scored the goal that qualified Nigeria for the FIFA 2018 World Cup, is getting better in all aspects of his game, especially in the goalscoring department.

The Arsenal coach’s appraisal of Iwobi was in reaction to the brace he scored for Nigeria in the friendly game against Argentina.

Arsene Wenger told football.London : « I think Alex is a player who grows regularly.

“This season, for the first time he’s adding what we want from him – goals – to his qualities, which are exceptional.

“Overall I think he has a good attitude and now he becomes efficient in front of goal as well. This kind of experiences like the one against Argentina will help him even more to grow.

“Before he rushed his finishing but his finishes against Argentina showed composed finishing of a guy who knows what he’s doing, and with his left foot as well.

“He’s worked a lot on his finishing and he’s improved a lot. Compared to one year ago, the difference is unbelievable.

“There’s still much to come from him. I want him to become a better defender as well. You want him to make better quality receptions in the final third, better runs.

“That will come because he’s a boy who loves football, who is passionate about the game and he has a very good attitude and analysis about his own game.

“He’s just enthusiastic to play and enthusiastic to be involved. He’s a pleasure to work with.

“For him the target is to keep the same attitude and the same desire to improve, he’ll move forward very quickly.”

Published

Neal Maupay, who plays in Brentford, currently 13th in the Championship, has already scored 5 goals since the start of the season with the English formation. 

But the former Nice, also passed by Saint-Etienne and Brest, should at least count one more. The tricolor striker, now 21, has indeed been the author of an improbable miss, inexplicably missing the frame while the goalkeeper was no longer in his goal during the defeat 2-0 of his team on the lawn of Cardiff City on Saturday. A failure already considered « the worst of the season » on the other side of the Channel.
