Higginbotham reveals why Pogba Rashford are excelling at Man Utd

first_imgFormer Manchester United defender Danny Higginbotham gave his verdict on Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford’s strong form.Since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s appointment as an interim coach at United, Pogba has managed six goals and five assists in nine appearances and produced another brilliant display to assist Rashford for the match-winner against Leicester City on Sunday.Meanwhile, Rashford himself has found the net six times since Solskjaer moved him into his preferred centre-forward role.“They’ve got their best players playing in their best positions and it’s proving hugely successful for them,” Higginbotham told Sky Sports.“Obviously, there are still question marks over the defensive side of the team, but they are scoring so many goals.“You’ve got Marcus Rashford playing in his favourite position through the middle and he is going from strength to strength. The run he is on at the moment is unbelievable.“And then there’s Paul Pogba. He’s now looking like the player that is one of the best midfielders in the world and he’s been given the freedom to go and express himself.”Nine wins and a draw have enabled United to reach the fifth round of the FA Cup and close the gap to the top-four in the Premier League table to just two points under Solskjaer.Higginbotham added: “You’ve got to give Ole Gunnar Solskjaer unbelievable credit. “Everything he touches turns to gold.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“I’ve heard a number of people saying anybody could have gone in and done that. No, they couldn’t, I’m sorry but they couldn’t. It doesn’t work like that.“What he’s done is he’s gone in there and looked at the team. What you see with the top managers and we see it all around world football, play your best players in their best positions and build a team around them in order to get the best out of them.”As for whether the Red Devils can snatch a top-four spot, Higginbotham said: “I think so and that’s something we wouldn’t have said a couple of months ago.“You have to give Solskjaer great credit because United are now playing to their strengths.”Rashford was named United’s Player of the Month for his strong performances in January.Horn Hill ➡️ Castle Black ➡️ The Citadel ➡️ Winterfell ➡️ Manchester 🏆Thanks for coming all this way to present @MarcusRashford with his #MUFC POTM award, @JohnBradleyWest! 😁 pic.twitter.com/mWz6Uovznh— Manchester United (@ManUtd) February 7, 2019last_img read more
