The first time I spent with my illness five or six years ago, I did spell training with a reserve team with Warren Joyce when the reserve team included many talented players such as Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard and Ravel Morrison.

In that team we played Pogba much higher on the pitch and in the more advanced attack area whether it was center or wide right or left. We feel he is the only player on the team who will go and win us the game.

It was also due to the fact that we thought he had a little discipline in the middle of the park as a normal central midfielder.

Sir Alex Ferguson might feel the same way. This returns to the famous game where we feel he left Manchester United behind him.

We lost to Blackburn 3-2 and all of our midfield players were injured. The manager chose Ji-sung Park, Phil Jones and Rafael da Silva and Paul on the bench. At that time we did not feel that he was disciplined enough for the reserve team to play in the middle of the park so that then jumping to play in the first team in an important match was a big step.

He sees himself more as a central midfielder but we see him more as an attacking midfielder, who can enter the area and become the winner of the match.

I personally like to see him in the final third where he can go and make things. He played high on the left for Juventus and for United he has a relationship with Anthony Martial.

They are both French, they have good friendships and good relationships. They can fit quite easily on the left because Martial can find himself in the position of the second striker, while Pogba can float out wide, take people and create something.

He is also a big boy who can enter the box. We talked about Marouane Fellaini controlling the ball in his chest but Paul could do that. He can receive the ball in the final third on his chest and enter the box and header score so I want to see it with a little more freedom to play and express himself.

On Saturday against Bournemouth, he started with a more traditional no. 10 roles but he found himself on the left a lot because United attacked more on that side. Luke Shaw bombed and Martial was dangerous with his dribbling so they might not have a lot of attacking threats on the right side.

It's a bit like Arsenal where they attacked to the left all the time when they had Thierry Henry, Robert Pires and Ashley Cole.

I feel like it could be a big part of Manchester United going forward where a lot of emphasis on attacking them can come from that side.
