Manchester United need “someone behind” Paul Pogba to get the “best” out of him, according to Troy Deeney. Pogba came off the bench in the Red Devils’ 2-1 win over PSG to open their Champions League campaign.
The midfielder has suffered a tough time after his claims of a “dream” move to Real Madrid. But Deeney believes a dip into the January transfer window is necessary.
Speaking to talkSPORT , the Watford forward said: “I can only talk of my own personal experiences with Paul, but I think he’s great. As a human being he’s quality.
“Still people are going to go, ‘he’s not quality’, but he’s their best player. On attributes alone he’s their best player. Does he get better with more quality players around him? That’s what I’d suggest.
“I think Fernandes is a different type of player and very good, but he’s their most effective. You can see him drive others. I would say if you can get someone behind them and let them two go free, that’s when you will see the best of Paul Pogba.”
