Former Juventus midfielder Edgar Davids is not “convinced” at all by Paul Pogba and has urged the Frenchman to showcase more of his talent
The 25-year-old played a pivotal role in France’s World Cup-winning campaign at Russia this summer.
However, Pogba has again reverted to the patchy form that he often had last season with Manchester United.
Manager Jose Mourinho had handed the French midfielder the captain’s armband in the hope that it would inspire improved performances at United.
But the Red Devils’ recent results have suggested otherwise after losing two of their opening four Premier League of the 2018/19 campaign.
Davids himself is disappointed to see Pogba’s continued struggles at United.
Although the Dutchman knows that Pogba has what it takes to be one of the world’s best central midfielders.
He told Canale 5: “I am not at all convinced by Paul Pogba.
“He plays a lot in England, it’s true, but I expected a lot more from him.”
Recent reports suggest that Pogba may be on the verge of a sensational return to Juventus as part of an exchange deal with Argentine striker Paolo Dybala.
But Davids feels that there is still more to come from Dybala and urged him to “work harder”.
“Dybala is a great talent, but he has to work harder,” he continued.
“It is not always the fault of the coach or the game system, even the player must look in the mirror and do more.”
Davids spent the majority of his career at Juventus and won three Serie A titles along with two Italian Supercups.
