Manchester United legend: Why Nemanja Matic will help Paul Pogba in Mourinho's squad

By

Manchester United legend Brian McClair says Paul Pogba's life will be easier now that the club has signed Nemanja Matic.

The Serbian left Chelsea to move to Old Trafford where he will again work under former Blues boss Jose Mourinho.

And McClair is convinced the 29-year-old will have little trouble to settle down in the Portuguese's setup.

"United need someone who sits there behind Pogba, who played his best football when Michael Carrick also played last season," McClair told ESPN FC.

"Michael is coming to the end of a wonderful career, so United need someone who can do something similar but who will be more mobile in the coming years.

"In the short term, I could see that someone like Matic would fit in.

"In some games, Paul Pogba has been in the wrong place and it has stifled his abilities which United bought him for.

"Pogba's attributes are all about attacking.

"He can find a pass, beat a player and has fantastic skills. He can score goals. For him to have the best opportunity of success at Old Trafford, Pogba needs to be playing in the final third of the pitch as much as possible."
