They played together for three years at Manchester United’s youth teams, before the Frenchman moved to Juventus. After his first season back at Old Trafford, Paul Pogba deserves more credit than what usually given, at least according to teammate Jesse Lingard.
He has settled back in. He is a fun, vibrant lad and he gives a lot of good energy off, especially in the changing room
the 25-year-old United winger told Sky Sports.
He can make the atmosphere very good before games and really get you on it
Lingard added, talking about a side of Pogba not seen by the fans or the pundits.
At 25, Lingard is not the oldest player at United (anything but), he has though reached an age at which he can talk to younger players, especially since he has spent his entire life at United, whom he joined aged just 7.
I’m 25 this year and there are obviously a lot of good youngsters coming through and it’s good that I can be there to advise them. It’s a great atmosphere. It is like playing with your friends in the park but obviously with an objective to win the game so you can get the best of both worlds with that
United’s scorer both in the Community Shield and the EFL Cup final said.
