Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has enjoyed a record-breaking start to the new Premier League season, nabbing seven assists in his first four games.
Pogba is already a third of the way to the all-time Premier League season record of 20 held by Kevin De Bruyne and Thierry Henry.
However, Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has claimed that he is uninterested in how many assists Paul Pogba has delivered for Manchester United this season.
According to Solskjaer, he pays attention to Pogba’s overall performances and believes Pogba is already a great passer regardless of the number of assists he has.
“Paul has come back in good shape,” Pogba said.
“He’s worked really hard over the summer. He’s come back lean and fit.
“What does an assist consist of? A square pass to Bruno [Fernandes] and he puts it in the top corner? Or a great ball for Mason [Greenwood]?
“Paul has always been a great passer and he’s not got assists from his best passes this season. I don’t pay attention to assists, it’s a social media thing. But Paul has played well for sure.”
