Manchester United are a club known for producing young talents and turning them into world class superstars. However every club makes mistakes, and one man who slipped through the net was Paul Pogba. Now his former teammate, and one of the best midfielders in the world in Andrea Pirlo is full of praise for the Frenchman.
“I have played with some great young players, but Pogba was the best young player I have ever seen.” Pirlo said. “There was a disbelief among the senior players that United had allowed him to leave.”
“Since then he has grown physically and as a player. For me he is now the most complete central midfield player in the world.”
This certainly sticks the knife in somewhat, as Manchester United could have one of the best midfielders in the world on their books at the moment – and he would have been a homegrown product.
However its also down to him not having the mentality to wait for his chance. At the first possible opportunity he walked out on his Manchester United teammates, which isn’t the right mentality to have here.
