UNCOVERED: Amazing Pogba stats since Fletcher joined Man Utd coaching staff

Darren Fletcher is being credited for the improved form of Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.

Over the New Year, United announced the 36-year-old had been promoted to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's staff, to help bring his extensive knowledge to the first team.

The Sun says since starting his new role, he has worked with Pogba and United's other midfielders to push their game to the next level.

And it is already reaping rewards, with Pog hitting the winners at Fulham and Burnley — and he also fluffed a late chance to snatch victory at rivals Liverpool on Sunday.

Fletcher is helping the 27-year-old French World Cup winner improve the defensive side of his game.

Pogba has made more recoveries than any of his midfield team-mates, delivered more passes and made as many tackles as Fred since Fletcher was unveiled as a first-team coach 18 days ago.
