Manchester United star Paul Pogba says playing with new midfield partner Nemanja Matic makes him wor

Paul Pogba has revealed he feels a lot calmer with Nemanja Matic playing alongside him in the Manchester United midfield.

Pogba had an effective – if not exactly inspired – first season back at Old Trafford following his £89million move from Juventus last summer.

Last season the two players were on opposite sides at United and Chelsea

But United fans expect a lot, lot more from Pogba – and it looks like the £40million arrival of Matic from Chelsea has given the Frenchman blast-off he was looking for.

The two men certainly hit it off in Sunday’s 4-0 Premier League thrashing of West Ham


And Pogba told The Telegraph: “Against West Ham, Matic was starting behind and I could worry more about attacking. I feel good playing that way.”

It seems that Pogba did feel constrained in 2016/17 as United battled their way into the Champions League thanks to winning the Europa League.
