Andre Gray explains what bothers him about Paul Pogba’s claim to Man Utd

Watford forward Andre Gray has defended Paul Pogba following criticism of Manchester United midfielder this season.

The 27-year-old has struggled with injuries since the start of the campaign, making only seven Premier League appearances, and continues to be linked with a departure from the club.

His inconsistent demonstrations when he was fit led many to speculate that Pogba isn’t fully involved with United, and some have suggested that the club would be better off without the Frenchman.

Speaking to Threesixtytv, however, Gray insisted that Pogba is a player worth persevering with, and he seemed to be aiming for a subtle digging up on those who don’t evaluate him.



Paul Pogba is a player who shares opinion with fans and experts

“People talk about Pogba and that bothers me,” he said. “Whenever I have played against Pogba four or five times, nobody can come close to him.

“It may not set the world on fire and score goals in the top corner. But you can’t get close to the child – it’s always somewhere where you’re not and you can’t understand it.

“Until you are on the field with him, you will never understand. From the stands it is like ‘Oh, he just shot him or he took this control’ but listen, when you play and you really understand when you are in midfield and in the positions there and you have four men around you … I’m telling you now, people can’t understand certain people. “

It remains to be seen what the future holds for Pogba, with speculation that he may be ready for a money move to Juventus or Real Madrid after cooling off from the coronavirus pandemic.

Artists of the likes of Sky Sports Graeme Souness were among Pogba’s greatest critics, with the former Liverpool player stating earlier this season that he would be “a real fool to play against”.
