Man Utd midfielder Pogba: Fernandes can do everything - except defend!

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba says his on-field relationship with Bruno Fernandes is improving.

Pogba has combined well with all of his team-mates during his recent purple patch, including Fernandes, a player he says is a joy to play with.

"I enjoy playing with Bruno," the 27-year-old told MUTV.

“He's someone who understands the game and understands the movement that can give you a beautiful pass, he can finish too. He's all over the place, he can do everything really... except defending!

“But really, it's always a joy to play him, to understand him. He understands me as well, he can take my position, I can take his position as well. I think he suits the team, he's a very dominant influence in our team."
