Paul Pogba’s young Manchester United career hasn’t been entirely rosy since he re-joined the club from Juventus.
But there have been some glimpses of the France midfielder’s talents.
His performance against Leicester earlier this season was pretty impressive. Not only did he score, but he *almost* created a goal-of-the-season contender for Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who blazed his volley after a neat chest down.
Another stellar performance was his first for Jose Mourinho’s Man United, when they brushed aside Southampton at Old Trafford.
Pogba ran the show in midfield, and looked as though he would easily justify his world-record transfer fee.
We’ve teamed up with illustrator and designer ELDEJO to pay tribute to that moment.
Here’s what ELDEJO said:
“A four year spell at Juve seemed only like yesterday as Paul stepped back on the pitch at Old Trafford. He grew from strength to strength as the game progressed, bossing the midfield and teasing the opposition with a light show as the technicolour Ordem flashed between his legs. Zlatan might’ve scored the brace, but as the whole of the Stretford End joined Il Polpo Paul in dabbin’, we all know now who the god of Manchester really is.”
