Manchester United legend, Gary Neville, has predicted that Paul Pogba could be crowned the PFA Player of the year for this campaign.
Manchester United made a bright start to their Premier League season after registering a 4-0 win over Chelsea and Paul Pogba was at the thick of the things at the Old Trafford.
However, a trip to the Molineux Stadium, where the Red Devils failed to register a win for the third time in 2 seasons, resulted in some unfortunate abuse for the Frenchman on the social media.
But, as per Gary Neville, Paul Pogba has got the biggest personality of all the players in the Premier League and if the midfielder manages to unlock his full potential, he could yet win the Premier League’s player of the year award:
“I think he could be the player of the year. That sounds like a bold statement,” Neville told Sky Sports, as per Metro Sport.
“He has the potential to be the best player in this league. He has the biggest personality in this league.
“Manchester United’s season rests a lot on him depending on how well he plays.
“I think he could be the player of the year, he is the one to watch for me. A lot of success for United depends on him and whether he can reach his real high standard.”
The curious case of ‘Paul Pogba and the realization of his full potential’ continues in 2019.
The Frenchman, no doubt, has got the talent and skills to become THE best midfielder in the world, but it’s always the lack of consistency and sometimes a hint of arrogance, that has let him down in the crucial moments.
However, at 26-years of age, the Frenchman is now the leader in the dressing room and on the pitch for the Manchester United players.
Hopefully, this will be the season we see Paul Pogba mature into the player we always expected him to be as he proves Gary Neville right for once.
