‘Manchester United need Paul Pogba, He’s a United Player’- Patrice Evra Praises Pogba

Former Manchester United captain Patrice Evra has lauded his countryman Paul Pogba for his brilliant performance against Tottenham Hotspur last night.

The Frenchman was a surprise name among United’s substitutes in last night game after the three-month break but came on in the 63rd minute to devastating effect.

And after his side were forced to settle for a point in the race for Champions League football, the longstanding Man United servant Patrice Evra even believes his former club ‘need’ the World Cup winner, and praised his countryman’s superb jink inside the box that won the visitors their spot kick.

He skipped past Eric Dier inside the penalty area and won a penalty, which Bruno Fernandes converted late on to force a share of the spoils.

He said: ‘It’s funny when people criticise Paul. You can see the difference when he is on the pitch. This goal he just destroyed Dier, maybe he is a fan in the stands. Winks he looks like he’s waiting for a cup of tea. He’s gazing at Paul beating Dier.

‘I saw that appetite to show to everyone he’s one of the best.

‘He couldn’t wait. He wanted to play football. He didn’t have an easy start. United need Paul. People need to stop saying United don’t need Paul. He’s a United player.’

United fans had hoped Pogba and Fernandes would be paired from the off on Friday evening, but they were made to wait until deep inside the second half to watch the midfield duo combine.
