Comparing Paul Pogba’s Man Utd stats under Mourinho and Solskjaer

After having a turbulent relationship with Jose Mourinho, Paul Pogba has started to showcase his best form for Manchester United under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. 

Pogba found himself out of the side during Mourinho’s last few games in charge but has been a key part of Solskjaer’s side when available.

We’ve compared the France international’s stats under Solskjaer to those he recorded under Mourinho at United to see where he has improved.

As the stats show, Pogba actually registered more goals and assists under Mourinho but injuries have limited his playing time during Solskjaer’s reign. 

Overall, the midfielder averages a direct goal contribution on a more regular basis under his current manager, who has afforded Pogba the kind of creative freedom he craves.
