Ryan Giggs: Matic will help Pogba score goals for United

Ryan Giggs is of the belief that Nemanja Matic's acquisition will allow for Paul Pogba to be more prolific this season.

The Serbian arrived at Manchester United last week and has been brought in to shore up the defensive midfield position.

"I expect Pogba will improve a lot this season. He's been back a year now and the introduction of Matic is a good buy because it frees him up," Giggs said.

"That's what you want to see from Pogba, getting on the end of crosses and scoring goals.

"I think he's capable of dropping deep or playing in an old-fashioned midfield two but he can get further forward and I expect him to be more effective this year.

"He managed nine last year and hit the crossbar and post plenty of times as well, so he can bring the goals that might turn draws into wins and have a real effect on the team."
