However, Pogba said he has been hugely impressed by his attacking teammates, Bruno Fernandes, Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood so far this season.

According to him, he loved every minute of watching them from the sidelines or further back on the pitch.

The former Juventus star said this ahead of Man United’s Premier League clash against Aston Villa on Thursday night.

“From behind (them) I just enjoy it. I am enjoying just watching Bruno, Rashford, Martial and Mason, who all played the last game, and seeing them score goals,” Pogba told United Review.

“You just keep applauding, and it’s beautiful, they make me enjoy football every time.”

He added:

“As well though there is the defensive work that people do not talk about – they do it. The pressing, they do it, and that’s what you maybe do not see that much.”

FIFA sets new rules for use of VAR in EPL, LaLiga, Serie A

FIFA announces new changes that affect Premier League, La Liga

‏FIFA has ordered that the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) reviews be applied uniformly across all competitions, as they take over direct responsibility for the system.

IFAB, the game’s law-making body, had previously handled issues pertaining to VAR during the two-year experimental phase.

During that time, there have been controversies mostly in the English Premier League, over how the centre referee should consult VAR to ratify decisions.

Other major leagues in Europe like Spain’s LaLiga, the German Bundesliga and the Italian Serie A, have seemed to operate differently to the top flight in England.

Chairman of FIFA’s Referees’ Committee, Pierluigi Collina, confirmed to Reuters that the decision to take over the control of VAR from IFAB was a “natural transition”.

“IFAB as an organisation has the duty to govern the laws of football, including VAR and the protocol and regulations. Once the laws of the game are set, IFAB’s job is over,” Collina said.

“It is then FIFA that deals with referees’ education around the world supporting all the member associations.”
