Liam Rosenior believes Paul Pogba doesn’t bring out the best from the players around him at Manchester United but suggested the Frenchman is a world-class footballer suited to a different style.

Pogba was abused by fans after his side’s 2-0 home defeat by Cardiff on the final day of the Premier League season.

And despite what has been arguably Pogba’s best season in a United shirt – 16 goals and 11 assists, his displays have come under fire as he failed to build on his World-Cup form.

However, former Fulham defender Liam Rosenior believes that Pogba’s quality will be suited to another team suggesting that his style makes things difficult for his team-mates.

Speaking on The Debate, he said: “Pogba is not the right player that United need right now. Is he a world-class footballer? Yes. Is he the type of player that you can use your values, your structure on, make him the leader of the team? He’s not.

“He’s just not the right fit.

“Liverpool and City are so disciplined. I remember Carrick, his positioning, his selflessness, he made players around him better. Pogba makes players around him worse players because they constantly have to fill in where he’s floating off.”

Pogba has been linked to Madrid in recent months and speculations are rife he may have played his final game for the Red Devils.
