Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has joked Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should name him on the bench in future after seeing a statistic about the club’s performance.
When United have Pogba in the starting XI, the Red Devils win only 1.9 points per game, whereas when he is on the bench, the Red Devils take 2.2 points per game on average.
When this statistic was put to him by Canal+, Pogba said: “So you have to put me on the bench then! I had not seen this statistic.
“If the team does better without me, I would totally understand that the coach would put me on the bench.
“It’s a good challenge for me anyway. I hope it turns to the other side. I hope people will win more with me than without me.”
