Anthony Martial is of the opinion that Paul Pogba is giving his best at Manchester United because of the free role given to him by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Pogba has been in sublime form since Jose Mourinho’s departure with six goals and five assists in nine appearances. During Mourinho’s reign at Old Trafford, Pogba struggled to find his best form and was even dropped for several key games by the Portuguese. But Pogba is now a key part of Unite’s midfield trio and Martial has credited Solskjaer with the 25-year-old’s improvement.

‘We all know what quality Paul possesses – Paul is Paul,’ Martial told Sky Sports. ‘Now he has got this freedom to play with, I think we are beginning to see the real Paul Pogba play and let’s hope it continues. He is a leader, he talks more in the dressing room than he does on the field to be fair. Technically and with the spoken word, he is a leader in both senses. I hope he can continue to lead us to great things.

‘I don’t think we are very far off the top four now so it is just a case of keeping going, winning as many games as we can so we can ensure a place in those Champions League spots at the end of the season. He [Solskjaer] is a coach with great values. I think he knows how to get the best out of players and he makes things clear so when we go out onto the field, we all know our jobs and we all know what we’ve got to do.

‘He’s given me lots of advice. It’s always positive to get advice from a top player in his own right, but sometimes, when you’re out on the field, it comes down to what comes naturally to you and you do what you’ve always known how to do in terms of finishing. We have a laugh among ourselves quite often because I think finishing is something that comes naturally to me. I’ve played since I was a young kid, I’ve always been a footballer and a striker from that early age. The thing we laugh about is that I miss quite a few in training, whereas in a match, I may only get one chance and I manage to convert it.’
