Robbie Savage believes that Paul Pogba needs to display more consistency in his performances at Manchester United this season.
The Frenchman initially struggled to adapt to life at Old Trafford following his world record move from Juventus over the summer.
And Savage, speaking earlier this week, has called on Pogba to eradicate the inconsistency from his game over the next year.
“There have been flashes of brilliances this season,” he said.
“He hasn’t been consistent. There are times when his passing has been wonderful. His goal at Swansea was world class. There has been flashes of brilliance. It is not on a consistent basis. For 89m, he should be consistently performing.
“I believe next season that Pogba will be the best player in the Premier League.”
Man United fans have seen enough from Pogba this season to know that Mourinho has a potentially world-beating talent at his disposal. And this, more than anything, is why the Frenchman can also serve as a cause for frustration: his brilliance is unmistakeable but has gone missing on occasion this season.
Then again, it is easy to forget that Pogba is just 23. Frank Lampard had ten less goals and seven less major trophies at that age. This season feels like something of a warm-up, almost as if the Frenchman is having a few looseners ahead of a truly storming 2017/18 campaign.
