David Moyes, the former Everton Manager, who had an unsuccessful spell at Manchester United succeeding the then retired Sir Alex Ferguson, told ESPN that he is unsure if Paul Pogba could have the same impact as the like of Eric Cantona or Ryan Giggs.
Paul Pogba, a former youth player at United left for Juventus, before United broke the bank to bring him in a world record move of £89.3m last season but his performances have received mixed reactions.
Moyes, speaking with ESPN TV has doubted Pogba’s ability in having a huge impact or making key difference in big games like previous Old Trafford legend, EricCantona.
“I think he’s a top player, I don’t know if he’s a player who completely makes a difference for Manchester United. 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.”
