Manchester United forward Alexis Sanchez has hailed the role played by Paul Pogba in turning around the club's season in just a matter of a month. He has also spoken about the volume of changes that have taken place since the departure of Jose Mourinho.
Pogba has scored seven goals since Solskjaer's arrival and is seen operating in an attacking role on the left of United's midfield, including Nemanja Matic and Ander Herrera.
Speaking to the Mirror in an exclusive interview, Sanchez spoke about how Paul Pogba's condition was under Mourinho and compared them to the Frenchman's body language now.

Sanchez started by stating, "Paul Pogba is still young, but he is a great player, who has to be trusted in the team. Now I see him far more involved in the team and he’s playing well. There’s a great atmosphere at the club.”
The Chilean maestro was then asked about the change in morale in United's dressing room since Mourinho left, to which he replied, "About what happens inside the locker room, I never speak. People keep saying the way things have changed is like a miracle, but I do not believe in miracles. I only believe in work and more work – and that’s what we’ve done.”
Sanchez will hope to be part of the Manchester United team as they prepare to take on Paris Saint-Germain in the UEFA Champions League round-of-16's first leg clash at Old Trafford this week.
