Ex Manchester United defender, Gary Pallister has said he feels Paul Pogba can be the world’s best midfielder if his talents are channelled the right way.
Pogba created 2 assists on Sunday vs Chelsea and his ball for Marcus Rashford’s second goal was a beauty to behold.
Gary concluded that he is a very special talent when he plays with a clear head.
His words, “The ball that he put through for Rashford, the drive and making the goal for Daniel James; that’s the Paul Pogba that we want to see,”
“If you can harness that talent then you have one of the best midfield players in the world, if not the best.
“It all depends on Paul, what he sees, what he believes and what he wants to do. If he’s not happy at Manchester United, as [Ole Gunnar Solskjaer] said, he wants players that want to play for the shirt; that are desperate to play for the shirt.
“Until we get closer to the end of the transfer window for the clubs in Spain then there will always be this conjecture.
“Ole has been very positive about Paul staying and wanting to get the best out of him as he’s a fantastic player and on his day we are talking about a world-class player.”
“There are big expectations on Marcus and I thought he put his penalty away clinically and I look at him as a more instinctive finisher,”
“Sometimes he has too much time, but I thought on Sunday he was clinical as he had a little bit of time but he put his second away fantastically well. Maybe that’s something that Ole has been working on with him, as there was no better finisher than Ole Gunnar.
“When you get into those situations you want someone with a cool head and immaculate finishing, and Marcus was absolutely clinical with his second goal.
“There’s been a lot of expectation on Marcus for both England and Manchester United for a while. He will play in a three-pronged attack either up front or on the flank, and he’s comfortable in all of those areas. He’s maturing, and there’s no doubt he’s the man now Lukaku has gone.”
