David Moyes has a very blunt assessment of Paul Pogba

13 August 2017

As well as the league wins, the 29-year-old has also lifted the FA Cup and the League Cup during his time in England. Here he's a bit selfish when he goes for the shot when I think he could have played it back to Mkhitaryan again.

Pogba wasn't at his best as United suffered a 2-1 defeat against Real Madrid in the Super Cup this week and will hope to perform better against West Ham on Sunday as Mourinho's side get their new Premier League campaign underway. A good season for me? I'm 24 now but when you are on the pitch there is no age. "He's a modern day footballer, he covers a lot of ground, he's a decent passer without being a great passer, he can get you some goals, he helps you out in both boxes with his stature and he was something which we didn't have at Manchester United and he was a player who was brought in to add to the squad".

"When I was young I was doing the same".

"He's [Lukaku] had a good pre-season".

"If we're being brutally honest I think his decision making out there in the first half hasn't been good".

Turns out Morata can play, and his diving header met a classy bit of playmaking from Willian to make it 3-1 in the 69th minute. That doesn't seem to have changed in the offseason, as Jurgen Klopp never bought another defender to reinforce his back line.

I think that over the years Manchester United have had players like Cantona, even Ryan Giggs, people who are special players.

There was suspicions that the goal was offside, with Steve McManaman suggesting the referee had made a mistake on BT Sport: "Officially he is offside so if it gets given offside, and you see these angles, you say fair enough", said the former Liverpool man. Although the 32-year-old was not able to feature in any of the pre-season games, he was part of the touring squad as his comeback trail continued.

"I used to get criticism at Everton because we played him there, he's got brilliant chest control, taking it down with his chest, he's as good as anyone in the world actually and he's a good footballer, but he was never somebody who was going to come and play every single game". "I will try to do my best to stay here, get an important role for the season, to help my team-mates and to impress the manager".

However, Pogba's performances divided opinion and Moyes remains unconvinced that the midfielder is capable of inspiring United to Premier League or Champions League glory.

He told Sky Sports: 'Win everything [is the target].
