Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane says he likes Manchester United’s Paul Pogba”a lot” and that the midfielder”knows the way to do every thing on the pitch”.
“I know him ,” said former France captain Zidane before Real’s La Liga match against Huesca on Sunday.
“He brings so much and there are not many players who bring around he does.”
Pogba re-joined United from Juventus for a then world record £89m in 2016, however his future at Old Trafford appeared in doubt earlier this year using widespread reports of acrimony between him and former manager Jose Mourinho.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer altered the sacked Mourinho in December and Pogba’s form has since improved, with the 2018 World Cup winner scoring two times under the Norwegian.
“He is a midfielder who knows just how to defend and the way to strike,” added Zidane, who came back into Real Madrid on 11 March less than 10 months later after exiting the Bernabeu.
“But he just isn’t my player, he’s at Manchester.
So when his experience at Manchester ends, why don’t you return here to Madrid?”
