Gary Neville believes Manchester United are now seeing “the best of Paul Pogba” with his agent’s comments proving to be a turning point.
The Red Devils midfielder has long been praised for his talent, but he has been unable to produce regularly enough.
Mino Raiola again stoked the fire when he declared his time at Old Trafford “over” and urged United to sell up in January.
Those comments came before a crunch Champions League clash at RB Leipzig, one they lost 3-2 despite a late comeback.
But Neville reckons since that evening, where Pogba came on and scored, United have got the best out of him and are a better team with him present.
“When they played Leipzig his agent came out and said he wanted to leave, but since then I have seen the best of Paul Pogba,’ he told Amazon Prime Video .
“I have got to say I prefer watching Manchester United when he is playing because he gives them something that might take them on the way to the title. He is a world-class player.”
Pogba played the full 90 minutes as United got an injury time winner against Wolves.
Marcus Rashford’s deflected effort lifted the Red Devils into second, just two points off leaders Liverpool.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are continuing to build momentum having won seven of their last nine league games.
Rashford though has dismissed talk of a title challenge despite their strong form.
“We can’t look too far ahead,” he said after scoring his 14th goal of the season.
“We are a team that is still doing a lot of work on ourselves and to be looking at the table so early on in the season is a bit stupid of us.
“We have to take it one game at a time and if we can keep finding ways to win like this we will see where we are at the end of the season.”
