- Reports suggest the Frenchman trained with the basketball side which greatly improved his physique
- The French midfielder came up with four assists in Manchester United’s first game of the season against Leeds
Paul Pogba’s explosive start to the new season is reportedly due to secret training sessions he held while in Miami during pre season.
The Athletic reports that whilst Pogba was on holiday in Florida, he engaged in different strength and conditioning sessions which thoroughly helped his physique.
Furthermore, he linked up with NBA giants Miami Heat while on holiday where he got involved in some of their training regimes.
He turned up late for Manchester United’s pre-season in Scotland because of his involvement in the Euro 2020 but that did not stop him from instantly gaining the trust of boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who was reportedly awed by his physical state.
The report further suggests that Solskjaer was so impressed with Pogba’s fitness that he decided to give the Frenchman a start in United’s Premier League opener against Leeds United.
And sure enough, Pogba did not disappoint as he was involved in four of United’s five goals in a 5-1 triumph, becoming the first Manchester United player in history to assist four times in a single game.
After the game, Solskjaer was quick to praise Pogba for his quality, saying the Frenchman’s form was down to the freedom he was handed in midfield.
"Today was just about, 'go out there enjoy yourself. We just gave him the freedom of roaming wherever he wanted to go and getting on the ball.
"All the best players would want to feel our trust and confidence, and Paul is one of those who can create moments out of nothing." Solskjaer said after the game.
