Manchester United open talks with Marcus Rashford over new contract

The older brother of France and Manchester United megastar Paul Pogba, Florentin, 28, is a left-footed center back with almost a decade of experience in France's Ligue 1. He was named a finalist for MLS' Most Valuable Player Award.

At some point, Mourinho deployed the playmaker in an unfamiliar position as he converted him to a centre-back. Florentin Pogba, who plays internationally for Guinea, joins a corps of center backs in Atlanta that also includes captain Michael Parkhurst, Leandro Gonzalez Pirez, Jeff Larentowicz and Miles Robinson.

Paul Pogba considered leaving Manchester United while Jose Mourinho was manager. "And now we have to continue like this and enjoy", said the Belgian worldwide. "But the most important is the team".

The Norwegian's success contrasts sharply with his first experience as a first team coach in the Premier League was a disappointing spell with Cardiff City which saw him lose 12 out of 18 games in charge.

Claude Puel believes Paul Pogba 's superb form is behind Manchester United 's revival under Ole Gunnar Solksjaer.

According to Solskjaer description of Pogba, the 45-year-old said the France World Cup victor is a brilliant player who knows what it's expected from him and possesses the potentials to deliver. Everyone is smiling more.

The Frenchman witnessed his compatriot provide the assist for Marcus Rashford to score the goal that beat his side at the King Power Stadium on Sunday. Pogba has spearheaded nine wins from 10 games and Puel says his fellow Frenchman is showing just how influential he can be.

The 21-year-old has scored six goals in ten appearances since Mourinho's departure.

"And, as a manager, I could see the signs that under Mourinho the players were not happy and the atmosphere and environment was not great".
