Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has opened up about his relationship with former team-mate Patrice Evra.
He was heavily criticised following his summer move to Old Trafford, where he became the world’s most expensive player, and despite settling in well, he became ridiculed in the wake of his official emoji.
The Frenchman played one of his worst games in a United shirt during the side’s 1-1 draw with Liverpool last weekend and supporters weren’t happy with the extra advertising after Pogba conceded a penalty.
Speaking about his friendship with Evra, Pogba claimed it’s someone that he has turned to often in his career.
“I player I always look up to is Patrice Evra. He’s family, that’s how I see him and he’s always looked after me, helped me and given me advice,” he said.
“He’s someone on the pitch who is very serious and very professional, yet away from the pitch he’s a brother.
“He’s someone very important for a football team and for a club – and as a person he’s someone who can help you a lot.”
Pogba is close friends with Evra due to their time together at Juventus and on the French national team.
Evra is someone who is still loved at Old Trafford and there’s no doubt Pogba has picked the right person for advice on how to get past this hurdle at the club.
