December looked like it was going to be a horror month for Paul Pogba after being dropped from the Manchester United team under Jose Mourinho.
But since Mourinho was sacked, the midfielder has been recalled to the side under interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and has been in integral in their three-game winning run since.
It leaves the midfielder with much to look forward to on and off the pitch, with girlfriend Maria Salaues also expecting a child in the new year.
She arrived at Old Trafford on Sunday wearing a jumper with the words ‘supreme’ on it ahead of United’s Premier League clash with Bournemouth.
Pogba seemed inspired by his heavily pregnant girlfriend in attendance, producing a man of the match performance by scoring twice in a 4-1 victory.
Solskjaer’s arrival has brought about a transformation — one that always seemed possible once United’s £89million record signing was happy again.
United’s next game comes on Wednesday when they travel to Newcastle United chasing a fourth consecutive victory.
United will head into the game sixth in the table as they look to haul themselves back into the race for the top four which provides a gateway to next season’s Champions League.
