Zlatan Ibrahimovic has explained why Paul Pogba was initially struggling at Manchester United.

Pogba became the costliest player when he arrived in Manchester United from Juventus for a world-record £89m fee. The French midfielder’s initial days were pretty horrific as he was struggling to acclimatise himself to the English conditions.

But with time he has been gradually improved and started to show what he is capable of. With Ander Herrera and Michael Carrick in the midfield, Pogba has the necessary license to roam around the pitch and that is the reason behind his upturn in form. The 23-year old has four assists in the past seven matches and has been pretty impressive in the last game against Sunderland.

Ibrahimovic feels that the burden of being the most expensive player has put pressure on him but now he has started to play his natural game.

He said, “I think when Paul came, in his first period in United, let’s say the first month, I think he wanted to demonstrate too much that he was worth the transfer that happened instead of playing his game like he knows how to play

“When that started to cool down, he started to play like he knows how to play, and he makes it more easier for himself, doesn’t need to demonstrate because everyone knows who Paul is, what he has been doing at Juventus for the past three to four years, what he’s able to do, and now he’s playing more like Pogba.

“He has nothing to demonstrate, he has nothing to show, he just needs to enjoy the game and help the team like he’s doing now. So now he’s playing like a mature player and you see the results.”
