Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has suggested that he is expecting Paul Pogba to improve following the Frenchman’s victorious return to action.
The midfielder, having been out since early February, made his injury return on Thursday night, being introduced at-half time against AC Milan and scoring the decisive goal.
In all, it was just Pogba’s 29th appearance of the season in all competitions and his fifth goal.
Despite his impact, the United boss is expecting more from Pogba as he regains his match fitness.
Speaking after the 1-0 win in Milan, the Norwegian said: “Paul looked like he’d been out for six weeks, yeah, for sure.
“He’s been working really hard but when you play football it’s different and you can see that he needs… he couldn’t play more than 45 and he’ll get better and better.
“That’s a big, big boost for us rest of the season because the boys have done fantastic without him but we know Paul’s qualities.”
The 28-year-old will hope to have even more of an impact on Sunday evening as the Red Devils square off with Leicester City in the FA Cup quarter-finals.
He sits at a price of 12/1 with William Hill to net the opening goal of the game in the East Midlands.
