The French midfielder has had plenty of detractors since his world record transfer from Juventus last summer, after a string of underwhelming performances in the Premier League.
But you couldn’t question Pogba’s commitment to the cause in Stockholm, as the powerhouse playmaker imposed himself on Ajax’s inexperienced side.
He scored the opening goal inside the opening 20 minutes and then used all of his know-how and wily expertise to see United over the line.
Did he enjoy it? Well, judging by his celebrations afterwards, it was akin to an outpouring of relief:

You can think what you like about Pogba and his abilities on the pitch, but it definitely looks like he’s going to be enjoying tonight’s victory right into the small hours of tomorrow morning.
What did you make of his performance?
