Paul Pogba has revealed his favourite playing position on the eve of his Manchester United debut.

Pogba joined United in a world-record move for £89.3million earlier this month, and the Frenchman is expected to make his second debut for the club on Friday against Southampton.

The Frenchman is unlikely to start at Old Trafford given his lack of match fitness, but Jose Mourinho expects that he will be handed “some minutes” in front of his home fans.

It is unknown how Mourinho will set his team up when Pogba is fully fit, but the Frenchman is adept in a number of systems.

He can play as a holding midfielder, a bonafide central midfielder, or a box-to-box midfielder, but the 23-year-old himself has revealed where he prefers playing.

“I would say midfielder on the left [is my best position],” he told Sky Sports. “If you play a three I can play on the right of left, but I feel more comfortable to play on my left.

“I can do it [holding midfielder], but I feel more comfortable a bit higher.”
