Former Man Utd Manager: I Don't Think Pogba Is A Special Player

Former Man Utd Manager: I Don't Think Pogba Is A Special Player

By SL International - Aug 13, 2017 11:01 AM

A former Manchester United manager claims that Paul Pogba is not a special player, and won't be able to make the difference for the Red Devils.

David Moyes, who was sacked in his first season at Old Trafford, doesn't believe Pogba can be as good as the likes of Ryan Giggs and Eric Cantona were.

The French midfielder joined United last season and has received his fair share of criticism over the past year.

"I think he's a top player, [but] I don't know if he's a player who completely makes a difference for Manchester United," Moyes said to ESPN.

"I think that over the years Manchester United have had players like Cantona, even Ryan Giggs, people who are special players.

"I don't know if Pogba's that. I think he's a good player, I think he'll add to Manchester United, but will he make the difference?

"Is he someone who will score the goal at really important stages in games or make the key pass? I'm not sure about that.

"But I do think that the machine that Manchester United are now, the size, the players they've got, you know they've got a massive stature to their team, I think Pogba adds to that.

"And I do think he's a good player, but I'm not quite sure if he'll make the difference in key games."

Most definitely,I miss gigs but pogba will hold the midfield he's strong. Man u is a force to be reckoned with this season. Strong contenders for UCL if they make it past group stage.

@Moloiseun Can't agree with you more. Apparently he refused to sign Pogba when he was appointed a coach @ United. Pogba is worth his money in GOLD. I think Mouirinho was clever to sign Matic. they will complement each other very well. Im happy the season has started yoooo.

He didnt have a great first season. But now he apparently can't make a key pass ? Does he even know who Pogba is? Is he supposed to score week in week out? Does Toni kroos score goals every game like Ronaldo?

This is rich coming from him. You cannot identify a 'special' player if you are not a 'special' coach. Mxm !!!!
