‘Liverpool the most important game’ Matic fires clear Manchester United message at Pogba
Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic has told Paul Pogba that Liverpool is the most important one for him to perform.
Pogba has been in the headlines alot this season for many reasons, but over the past few weeks he has looked like a player that wants to help this Man Utd side regain that Premier League title ahead of Manchester City and Liverpool.
The Frenchman was was excellent against Burnley, earning plenty of plaudits from around the Premier League, with his goal putting Man Utd at the very top of the League, three points clear of Liverpool ahead of their meeting at the weekend.
And his Serbian teammate joined the chorus of praised, but has warned the Frenchman that he is needed against Liverpool, and it is the most important game for him to perform: “Yeah, Paul in the last couple of games, he [has] showed a maturity,” he told manutd.com.
“He showed exactly the way he needs to play. If he continues to play in this way… He is one of the best midfielders in the world. On the pitch he will show exactly what is his potential and that he can be the leader. Yeah, he needs to use what he has in legs [and] in his head.
“I don’t want to say too much more about him, I don’t want him to feel too much big [headed]!” joked Nemanja. “He is fantastic, as I said, he needs to go game by game. The next one is the most important.”
If Man Utd are to beat Liverpool to that Premier League title, this will be their first challenge to prove that they are good enough to beat the Reds. But they need more than Pogba to be on form as this Liverpool squad are one of the best in Europe.
It is an exciting game to look forward too and one that will put two of the best against each other
