Paul Scholes believes Paul Pogba could finish the season playing in a wider role on the left after his superb impact off the bench against AC Milan.
Pogba, who had not played since limping off against Everton on February 6, was called upon at half-time with United struggling.
His impact was almost instant, finding the back of the net three minutes into second half with a sublime finish to beat Gianluigi Donnarumma.
The France international replaced Marcus Rashford at the break, taking his place on the left with Dan James on the opposite flank and Mason Greenwood leading the line.
And after his instant impact, Scholes believes Pogba could thrive in the role where his defensive responsibilities are reduced.
‘In that left hand side position tonight, he came in and did brilliant. Maybe that position takes a little bit of defensive responsibility off him,’ Scholes told BT Sport.
When asked by Owen Hargreaves if he would continue playing him there, Scholes added: ‘It depends who is fit and I do like [Anthony] Marital or [Marcus] Rashford on that left hand side I must admit.
‘There is no doubt the quality he has as long as he is not thinking about having to defend because he does get caught out a little bit in that position. I think it could be a position for him.
‘When he played for Juventus that was his best position, either on the left or the right of a three. And we all know about the football he produced in that team.’
