Paul Pogba “can do absolutely everything” and boasts many of the traits that made Steven Gerrard a Liverpool legend, claims Manchester United icon Paul Scholes.
A France international on the books at Old Trafford has attracted plenty of criticism since completing a record-setting £89 million ($110m) return to Englan d in the summer of 2016.
Rather than becoming the talismanic presence that the Red Devils hoped he would be, Pogba is considered to be a divisive figure who has fallen short of expectations.
Scholes told United’s official podcast :
“I played a bit with Paul and everyone knows the talent he’s got.
“He’s been brilliant for Juventus, brilliant for France in the World Cup and really good at times here [at United ] as well.
“He can do everything as a midfield player and you’d probably liken him to Steven Gerrard with the pace, the power, the skill. He can do absolutely everything.”
