Hugo Lloris: Paul Pogba will become of the Premier League’s best players

Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has backed Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba to become one of the Premier League’s best players.

The Frenchman has endured a mixed start to the season at Old Trafford following his £89 million transfer from Juventus in the summer.

However, Lloris believes his France team-mate will become a massive success at Man United after the midfielder’s start to the campaign was hampered by his participation at Euro 2016.

“There is a lot of pressure around him, certainly due to his transfer fee,” he said.

“But he feels quite relaxed with everything. He has not changed personality. Paul is a winner, he has a strong personality, he has character, but he also has respect for team-mates and coaches.

“He may need to get used to the demands of the Premier League. I think his preparation at the start of the season was disrupted, but that has been the case for all of France’s players [at Euro 2016].

“He has made an impact in Manchester United’s games. And I think he will become one of the best players in the Premier League.”

He almost put one past Lloris 90 seconds into the first-half on Sunday afternoon and his performances have massively improved since his summer move.

At 23, there is plenty of time for him to develop at Old Trafford and become a top player under Jose Mourinho.
