Football is fast approaching, and with it the increased rumors about how Ole is expected to pair Bruno and Pogba in a new look midfield. Word has it that Pogba will be deployed as the more attacking of the two players, with Bruno to be utilized a deeper-lying midfielder pulling the strings.
This makes sense given that while both players are astute attackers and playmakers, Bruno is a more tenacious defender with a higher work rate on that side of the pitch. Also, Pogba is probably better suited higher up and in the box given his physicality and strength on the ball.
While there is certain to be quite a bit of squad rotation in the months ahead, it’s exciting to hear that the defacto starting XI for the restart of the season is beginning to take shape. Now who do you start in the midfield three alongside Bruno?
It’s good to have options, and for the first time since I can remember United have them all over the pitch.
Let’s stay healthy and remind the Premier League what Manchester United is all about.
