Manchester United record signing Paul Pogba seems to be better understood and used by France’s Didier Deschamps.
Pogba produced another impressive series of performances in the past international window against Portugal and Sweden, but there’s nevertheless low expectations he will return to his club to sparkle.
So how does Deschamps get the best out of Pogba? Is it a psychological and way of managing what is an enigmatic talent?
“Just see what he was able to do in Portugal and what he did tonight,” Deschamps after France’s 4-2 win over Sweden on Tuesday night.
“I know him, I know how he works. He has pride and above all he has talent. When you have to defend, he can defend. When he has the opportunity to express himself, he is able to do so.
“Paul is a top-level player and I hope what he did with us will be useful to him when he gets back to his club,” concluded the former France international.
