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.

He felt the burden of that record transfer fee but is now ready to really prove his worth.

He said: ““When I left [in 2010] I always felt like I had missed something at Unitedbecause I wasn’t a first XI player

“Now I’m happy to be back. I grew up a lot in Italy and I have come back as a man.

“I am always confident and now it is my second season. I know more about the Premier

League and I adapt more with the team.”
