Paul Pogba XI: 10 best players he has played with
Ever since the departure of Jose Mourinho from Manchester United, Paul Pogba is playing with a different zeal altogether. The charismatic Frenchman is playing with extreme confidence under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. There is an unmatched oomph about him now which is making his fans go gaga.
The playmaker began his youth career with Le Havre and was roped in by The Red Devils in 2009. However, limited playing time eventually led him to join Serie A club Juventus in 2012.
The midfielder had a brilliant run in Italy and was pivotal in helping his side win 4 consecutive league titles. Pogboom, as he is popularly known, made a return to Manchester United in 2016 for a then-record transfer fee of €105 million.
The 25-year-old could not bring out his best and there were regular confrontations with manager Mourinho. However, there is a new energy and dynamism Pogba is bringing to the field since the arrival of Ole as manager.
He already has 4 goals and 3 assists in the 3 matches he has played under Ole. Having won the FIFA World Cup with France in 2018, there is no stopping Pogba and he is sure to unleash his best in the upcoming games in 2019.
Over the years, the French footballer has played with many legendary players. In this article, we aim to form the playing XI taking 10 of the best players the playmaker has played with in his career.
It is ideally a playing XI formed by current and ex-Juventus and Manchester United players.
Goalkeeper (Gianluigi Buffon)
Gianluigi Buffon will be our choice of goalkeeper. The 40-year-old is one of the greatest of all time and he spent the majority of his career with Juventus.
The veteran goalkeeper even compared Pogba with Zinedine Zidane and held high regards and praise for him for the efforts he put on the field. The custodian made an overall of 656 appearances for Juventus in the 17 seasons he was with them.
The potent shot-stopper moved to Paris Saint-Germain ahead of the 2018–19 season and has made 13 appearances for the French giants. Buffon was also an integral part of Italy's national team.
David de Gea, Manchester United's current goalkeeper, is also a brilliant talent but Buffon has been picked in the XI due to his sheer wealth of experience at the highest level.
