Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has insisted Cristiano Ronaldo ‘has never been a problem’ at Manchester United.

“It was a beautiful game and a beautiful reaction from us,” Pogba told BBC Sport after Manchester United’s 3-2 victory over Tottenham Hotspur with Cristiano Ronaldo scoring a hat-trick.

“We hurt them at the right times and Ronaldo did what he does best. He has never been a problem. You have the best striker in history in our team, he cannot be a problem. Today the performance from him and all the team was very brilliant.

“Ronaldo was brilliant. I think that’s all we needed – a reaction. We scored beautiful goals. Even when we conceded a goal, we came back and scored again. The mentality was there again today.

“Everybody knows Cristiano – there’s no need to talk about him. That’s what he does. He didn’t play in the last game, but he comes back and scores three goals. Everybody’s happy.”
