Ahead of Manchester United’s Round of 16 first leg clash against Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday night, the French club’s manager has spoken highly of the influential and in-form Paul Pogba.
Since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replaced Jose Mourinho, Pogba has been the most influential player in Europe based on his goal involvements.
The Frenchman has contributed to 13 goals in his last 10 matches, a hot run of form that includes three braces.
While many have been surprised by his turn in form, PSG’s Thomas Tuchel believes the player has incredible qualities.
"Well I don't think there's any surprise about Paul Pogba being a key player, he's an incredible player," he said, according to Manchester Evening News.
"He has wonderful qualities, he can do a lot of things, extremely strong, with the ball at his feet, he's very good and very strong in challenges and one on ones, taking people on he's always capable of making a difference and I think in my opinion he's always dangerous offensively with Martial , they're a very dangerous pairing.
"Pogba is dangerous in the penalty area as well when the ball comes in from the right and he arrives at the right time, he's a very good header of the ball, a key player absolutely and he's now becoming a leader, he loves playing for this club."
Pogba has scored 13 goals and assisted a further nine strikes in 30 games in all competitions this season for the Red Devils.
