During the match between Manchester United and Leeds United, it became evident that Paul Pogba can not enjoy a successful career in Manchester United unless Bruno Fernandes gives him the room to express himself in Manchester United’s midfield. For many years, Manchester United prefers to play Paul Pogba out of position because of the lack of trust they have in Pogba’s ability to effectively control Manchester United’s midfield.
Since Solksjaer started managing Manchester United, he loves to play Bruno Fernandes as the attacking midfielder and plays Pogba as the left-winger. Paul Pogba has shown bits and pieces of his potential but he has failed to unleash his full potentials regularly.

Manchester United fans have wondered why Paul Pogba has failed to shine at the club. However, the recent Manchester United performance against Leeds United has disclosed that if Bruno Fernandes makes enough room for Paul Pogba to play a free role in the Manchester United midfield, he will consistently repeat what he did during the encounter with Leeds United.
During the match between Manchester United and Leeds United, Paul Pogba showed Manchester United fans the full package they can get from him when he provided 4 assists. The bottom line is that during the match, Bruno Fernandes often made forward runs, thereby creating enough space in the midfield for Paul Pogba to thrive in.

Paul Pogba started the match as a left-winger but the intelligent movements of Bruno Fernandes made it possible for Pogba to play a free role for most of the match. A lot of congratulations has been going to Paul Pogba for making 4 assists in a Premier League match, however, we must never forget the contributions of Bruno Fernandes in ensuring that Pogba enjoyed himself in the match.

If Bruno Fernandes had decided to remain behind the striker throughout the match without making forward and diagonal runs into the opposition’s box, it would have been impossible for Paul Pogba to see where he can operate from. If Fernandes had not created room in the midfield for Pogba to excel in, it would have been impossible for Pogba to shine in that match.
If Manchester United wants to keep winning matches with ease, then they must encourage Bruno Fernandes to continue creating some room for Pogba to slide into and cause havoc for the opposition defense. Even if Pogba continues to play as a left-winger, he can slide into the attacking midfield position when Manchester United has possession of the ball.

At this point, it has become clear how Bruno Fernandes can help to unlock the full potential of Paul Pogba without the manager’s help. Bruno can score plenty of goals and Paul Pogba can create a lot of chances for his teammates. If Fernandes continues to allow Pogba to constantly slide into the Manchester United attacking midfield position, Fernandes could become the highest goalscorer in the Premier League.
