Brighton manager Chris Hughton has responded to questions over whether he has plans for Manchester United star Paul Pogba or not, stating he won’t be taking any special measures.
The Frenchman was the star of the show in the win over Leicester City last weekend after he was named man of the match and got his name on the scoresheet.
Pogba has returned following his exploits in the summer that has seen him win a World Cup medal, winning over several critics in the process,
United are said to have a better player now than the one that left to Russia but Hughton has revealed despite the player’s obvious qualities, he won’t be going the extra mile.
It’s now up to Paul to prove the Brighton boss wrong for not doing so and continue his fine form from last weekend.
According to Manchester Evening News, Chris said: “He’s a very, very good player, there’s no doubt so we have to be guarded against that tactically.
“But no special measures. He’s capable of having a very good season. I think he showed that in the summer, I think he’s showed that in good periods at United.
“I think he’s a wonderful athlete, can certainly break very, very well from midfield and I think what he has shown is a passing ability that he’s got. He’s a wonderful all-round footballer.”
Pogba has already been confirmed as the captain for tomorrow’s match so the hope is it can inspire yet another top display.
If the former Juventus man can stay injury free this season then he can finally put an end to the ‘inconsistency’ label that’s been thrown at him.
It all started after Paul was in good form for Manchester United last season but had his year disrupted by an injury he failed to fully recover from for a while.
