Former Manchester United midfielder Keith Gillespie has exclusively told The Transfer Tavern that it’s impossible not to like Paul Pogba.
The French World Cup winner has often been criticised for failing to live up to his world-record fee following his move from Juventus back in 2016.
But Pogba has performed impressively for United in recent months and is just 90 minutes away from securing a second Europa League title later this month after their victory over Ajax four years ago under Jose Mourinho.
And the 28-year-old’s numbers epitomise his good form. Pogba has been involved in 14 goals in 39 appearances in all competitions, scoring six times, whilst chipping in with eight assists.
The £290,000-a-week ace is back to playing some of his best football under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, with the Frenchman recently praising the United boss for never going against his players when taking a swipe at former boss Mourinho at the same time.
He starred once again at Aston Villa on Sunday, assisting Edinson Cavani’s goal to seal yet three more points on the road.
And Gillespie told The Transfer Tavern that he’s a huge fan of the midfielder:
“I think it’s hard not to be a Paul Pogba fan when you see how good he can be. But it’s just about getting that consistency.
“Sometimes you think, is his head in the right place? He’s so strong on the ball at times – he can make things happen.”
