Former Manchester United midfielder Owen Hargreaves has hailed the performance of Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba in the 1-0 victory over AC Milan on Thursday night.

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer introduced the French midfielder, just back from a hamstring injury, for Marcus Rashford at half-time in the San Siro.

Pogba marked his return from injury by scoring just three minutes after coming on.

“He played fabulous when he came on,” Hargreaves told BT Sport.

“He just added a touch of class. The goal was great. Everything about his performance second-half was top drawer.

“United, let’s be honest, they were the better team. Milan played decent but didn’t create much.

“I think for Ole, he rises to the big occasion. He did today and so did Paul Pogba.

“He’s always looking for the ball, always wanting to turn on the shoulder. He made the difference tonight.

“He added that touch of class when Man United really needed it.”
