Former France international Thierry Henry believes Manchester United will get more out of Paul Pogba once they start using him more effectively.
The midfielder has come in for some heavy criticism since his world record move from Serie A giants Juventus to Old Trafford, which cost the Red Devils about £89.3 million (R1.5 billion), at the beginning of the 2016/17 campaign.
Henry believes that the 24-year-old has not shown his best form because he has been playing far too deep under Jose Mourinho.
« It was always going to be difficult for Paul Pogba, » Henry said via Sky Sports.
« They don’t use Pogba where he should be playing – he’s not a holding midfielder. He likes to play higher or off the left. You lose a bit of him when he plays deeper.
« When you have a price tag like his, people are always going to talk. It could be good if someone comes in during the summer with a bigger price tag, then people might leave Pogba alone.
« I think his second season can be better. He’s got much more to offer. »
Pogba has made 50 appearances for the Old Trafford club this season, scoring eight goals and assisting six further strikes.
