Former Manchester United coach explains why Paul Pogba is under performing

Following a brilliant start under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Paul Pogba has recently failed to impress with former Manchester United coach Rene Meulensteen revealing that the Frenchman will only perform to his maximum potential when he is alongside Ander Herrera.

Pogba has flattered to deceive amid United's run of seven defeats in nine games which is their worst form since 1962 and was particularly poor as the Red Devils suffered humiliation with a 4-0 defeat by Everton at the weekend. The Frenchman has been linked with a move to Real Madrid in the summer transfer window after flirting with the Spanish giants on a number of occasions.

In an interview with Training Ground Guru, Meulensteen revealed why Pogba has struggled of late, "He clearly struggles to dictate the game if he doesn’t have good enough players around him. With Juve and France, he did extremely well but had players like Andrea Pirlo, Claudio Marchisio and Arturo Vidal with him in Turin, and N'golo Kante for France.

"Herrera gives Pogba the platform to get in the box and play those searching passes, because he keeps the balance. He’s able to stop the fires, is mobile, can pick the right passes and has really good game understanding. I don't think the other central midfielders we've seen have been able to provide that same platform."
