The Times have leaked information that Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is the only non-Manchester City or Liverpool player to be part of the leaked PFA team of the year.
Despite being criticized extensively by pundits and, infamously, by former manager Jose Mourinho, the fellow players in the Premier League apparently rate Paul Pogba highly after Times confirm that he will be part of the PFA team of the year.
Incidentally, he will be the only non-Manchester City or Liverpool player to make the team, with the usual suspects like Virgil van Dijk and Raheem Sterling also expected to be part of the squad.
Pogba has enjoyed a resurgence to his goalscoring form after current Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over in December ’18, despite tailing off in the last few games when the team has been on a losing streak.
Who Stays, Who Goes at Manchester United?
The World Cup winner has contributed 16 goals and 11 assists this season, in 43 appearances in all competitions. Of that, he has scored 13 goals and laid on 9 more in 31 Premier League appearances.
He is also the center midfielder with the most goal contributions in the league this season, perhaps explaining why his peers have reportedly voted him into the PFA team of the year.
The PFA player of the year award winners were leaked yesterday, with Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk rumoured to take pole position, followed by Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling.
