Will Pogba and Fernandez strike a solid partnership?
Bruno Fernandez and Paul Pogba trained together at the Red Devils with the Portuguese documenting it on Instagram and got fans talking
Fernandez and Pogba haven’t played together as the French International has been out of action since Boxing Day with an ankle injury.
Pogba was due to return to group training in Match, but Carrington was forced to close its doors due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Nonetheless, the Premier League players have slowly been allowed to return to their club’s training grounds in small groups in recent weeks ahead of the season resume.
Pogba and Fernandez were present at the Carrington and practiced social distancing while working out on mats.
The Portuguese took to Instagram the documented session uploading a picture of himself and the Frenchman. He captioned the picture, “PP” and tagged Pogba alongside an “explosion” emoji. This suggested there will be fireworks when the two finally take the pitch together for Manchester United.
The post generated the desired effect with fans sharing the image across social media and commenting on hundreds.
“The Premier League isn’t ready,” wrote a fan. Another added, “My word, I’m not ready for this partnership.”
A third commented, “they are ready. But is the league ready?”
Much has been said of whether Fernandez and Pogba will strike up a solid partnership for United when football resumes.
Nonetheless, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is adamant the duo will have no problems. He said, “good players can always play together. So, definitely, they can. It’s a big yes”.
“I think it’s exciting. I’ve got McTominay, Fred, Matic. There are many games coming up and I’m sure we can find a good connection between them. We’ve been discussing that as a coaching team of course and we are looking forward to it”.
“Of course, Bruno coming in, making the impact he made, it was a boost for everyone. The club, supporters and players. Getting Paul and Marcus Rashford back would be fantastic”.
