Pogba and Fernandes may need to make sacrifices, says Darren Fletcher
Manchester United midfielders Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes are good enough to play together but may need to make “sacrifices”, according to Darren Fletcher.
Pogba was out with an ankle injury when Fernandes arrived from Sporting Lisbon in January, but the France midfielder is now back to full fitness as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer prepares his side for the Premier League’s return.
Former United midfielder Fletcher, who appeared on Friday’s MUTV Group Chat to discuss a range of topics, says the pair may need to make sacrifices in their own game to benefit the team.
“Great players can come together. “Somebody might have to sacrifice a little bit of something – that’s part of being in a team, it’s not an individual sport.”
“When you play with a certain midfield, whether it’s a midfield three, you adapt your game to complement each other.
“That’s what I had to do at United. I was in the team with lots of different midfielders, lots of combinations and, if a certain midfielder was playing, I would try to take up positions to allow him to benefit and he would do things to allow me to benefit.”
