Ralf Rangnick details positional plans for the returning Paul Pogba

Manchester United interim head coach Ralf Rangnick has said that he is planning to use fit-again Paul Pogba as a central midfielder rather than in a wide area.

Pogba has not played for the Red Devils since November due to a thigh problem but is now available for selection and will be involved in Friday's FA Cup clash with Middlesbrough at Old Trafford.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer used Pogba as a wide player on a number of occasions during his time at the helm, with the Norwegian favouring Fred and Scott McTominay in the central areas.

However, Rangnick has revealed that he is planning to use the France international as a central midfielder, either operating as the number six or number eight.

"What I've seen so far, with regard to his physique, his physical presence, the technical assets he has, I think his best position is a central midfield position. I don't see him that much as a winger," Rangnick told MUTV.

"By saying that, I wouldn't say he cannot at all play that position. But we have quite a few players for the winger position right now. I see his best possible position as central midfield, if it's a number six or an eight, I have to see. I haven't seen him play so far. If you ask me right now, probably the number eight position."

Pogba has still not signed a new deal with Man United, meaning that, as it stands, he will leave the club on a free transfer at the end of June. body check tags ::
