Paul Pogba’s long term future at Manchester United is not certain and the Frenchman has been tipped to leave Old Trafford this summer but Troy Deeney believes if one player can convince Paul Pogba to stay at Manchester United it will be Bruno Fernandes. The Watford star Deeney thinks Fernandes’ arrival in January might have changed the Frenchman’s mind about leaving. ‘If [Pogba’s] now going, “Oh, this is the type of player that we’re signing, cool”,’ Deeney told the United Stand.
‘I’ve heard him on the pitch, sometimes he’s coaching players. ‘It’s frustrating, I’ve been in that situation, many captains in our league have been in that situation where we’re going [to team-mates], “Yo, do what you do in training, just because there are more people here doesn’t mean you have to change your game”. ‘I can understand why he’d get frustrated.
But now he’s probably looking at it going, “Okay I can see what’s going on here, I and Bruno can do a madness”. ‘If you put (Nemanja) Matic in behind them or (Scott) McTominay, break it up, you know like Roy Keane used to do, get it, break it up ten let (Paul) Scholes do his thing.’
Pogba is currently injured and has not played since December due to a recurring ankle problem.
