Jose Mourinho did, as did several of his teammates on a night the French midfielder scored twice and assisted United’s other goal.
“Solid, class and gave the team the pace we needed at times,” said Manchester United’s manager. “He controlled the tempo and of course it was a very good goal.”
Pogba again captained the side, which has won three-straight and allowed just one goal in wins over Burnley and Watford in addition to Wednesday’s win.
“He gets some stick sometimes but we know what quality he has. For me, he is one of the best in the world. He is important as captain. He shows on the pitch what kind of leader he is. Hopefully he can carry that on.”
Mourinho’s praise carries a bit more weight considering he didn’t quite enjoy the competition.
“Job done,” he said. “Not phenomenal but good enough. (Young Boys) were intense, compact and had self esteem.”
