Paul Pogba has been suffering at Manchester United lately, but according to former Red Devils coach David Moyes, the Frenchman is still one of the best.

French midfielder Paul Pogba joined Manchester United in 2016.

But his experience in the English Premier League has not been as successful as he might have wanted.

But according to former Red Devils manager David Moyes, he is still the best midfielder in the world.

“Pogba is still Manchester United’s best midfield player,” he said according to Football 365.

“He could probably play for any team in the world, certainly in Europe. He’d get a game for any team.”

“I’m not always sure he’s a player who’s consistent and makes the difference all the time,” he added.

“For the profile, he’s got, you’re hoping he makes the difference. He doesn’t always make the difference, but do I think he should stay at Manchester United? Yes, I do.”

He explained: “I don’t think he wins games like Messi does for Barcelona or [Cristiano] Ronaldo does for Juventus, but I still think he’s a really talented player. He’s got a lot to give.”

“Watching him at his best was when he was at Juventus, he played a little bit further forward, he got nearer the box more often.”

“If you were picking the Manchester United team, Pogba would be in their midfield at the moment, that’s for sure,” he concluded.
