The exit of Jose Mourinho has certainly broken the shackles at Old Trafford, and among a group of players who are thriving under the new found freedom, nobody is enjoying life more than Paul Pogba.

The French midfielder has already won back the hearts of every single United supporter with his sensational performances in the weeks gone by, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been vocal in identifying him as one of the main men of the squad.

The player was bought for £89m from Juventus, and although it might have taken some time, the huge transfer fee seems to be finally paying off for the club and its fans.

If performances on the field and a World Cup winner’s medal weren’t enough to show how good Pogba actually is, the latest clip of him showing off his first touch certainly does that job.

In an interview during Manchester United‘s training camp in Dubai, the 25-year-old wowed one and all when he stopped a ball headed for the camera dead in its tracks, and he did so seated, without barely moving a muscle.

Co-incidentally, at that exact time, the superstar was talking about the confidence he has at the moment, and its proof was present for all to see.

With 5 wins out of 5, Solskjaer has made a dream start as United boss, but upcoming games vs Tottenham and PSG will prove his worth as a manager.

Pogba is without doubt one of the best players in the world at the moment, and if his game continues to be as good as his first touch is, United fans will be licking their lips for upcoming glory.
