One Manchester United star has been speaking about the return of Paul Pogba this week as the Frenchman returns from injury.
The Man United record signing always has the spotlight on him but an injury had stopped his season in its tracks.
Having impressed early in the season, Pogba was forced to spend time on the sidelines but he has now returned to the side with a bang.
That came in the form of a goal against Newcastle at the weekend as he looks to get back to his usual self.
Now, Man United star Juan Mata has been speaking about just how important the player is both in and out of the squad.
“The more that we are fit to play the better for everyone,” he explained.
“Zlatan and Paul are experienced players, top players and they give us a lot of things on and off the pitch. It’s a big boost for us.”
“Zlatan and Marcos have been out for a long time and it’s great to have them back.”
“They trained hard, they fought hard to be back so it’s really positive to see them on the pitch and see them performing well.”
“With Paul the same. You know how much he likes football.”
“He hates to be out of the football pitch, so it’s been a great week for us in terms of injured players coming back.”
“It’s a big boost for the whole team and for the mentality of the squad.”
Five Man United set for exits
While Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo return to the squad, several are set to leave it before next season.
That is because reports today seem to suggest that up to five players could be set to leave before the next campaign.
