Man United's Paul Pogba

Owen Hargreaves thinks Pogba is a ‘£90m gift, not a £90m problem’ (Videos)

Pogba under the microscope

Owen Hargreaves was fiercely defending Paul Pogba ahead of the second leg of Manchester United’s last 16 Europa League tie with Rostov. The French midfielder has been subject to criticism from pundits and fans this season.

The pressure is on to impress after being made the world’s most expensive player last summer.

Despite scoring a few goals and providing a handful of assists in the current campaign, Pogba is often accused of not having a big enough influence on games. Some United fans have even called for him to be dropped.

It ain’t about the haircuts

While Pogba might make headlines for dabbing and extravagant haircuts, he delivers so much more than a brand.

Hargreaves argued that all of Europe’s top teams would want to sign the tall midfielder.

He reckons Barcelona, Real Madrid and Chelsea would all be improved by the signing of Pogba.
