Paul Pogba seems to be the “one real world-class player” at Solskjaer’s disposal according to Neville
Pogba has been sidelined with foot and ankle injuries for the entirety of the season and managed to play only 8 games across all competitions.
Pogba was brought on as a substitute in the second half of the away match against Tottenham. He made an impressive return by winning a penalty which was then converted by his new midfield partner, Bruno Fernandes.
The former United captain insists the ability and production of Pogba has never been worthy of criticism, calling him the club’s only player in the world-class bracket.
“A committed Paul Pogba can be a great player for Manchester United,” Neville told Sky Sports.
“His goal and assist numbers are very good over the last couple of seasons. They are up there with the best.
“Hopefully with the economical problems – clubs can’t spend £80, 90,100 million on players – United will keep him.
“Pogba will then understand that’s he’s staying – all I ever want from him is commitment.”
Neville added: “I’ve never blamed him for United’s troubles, I do believe he’s the one true world-class player, although I would have put David de Gea in there two years ago.
“Pogba should be the one to lead from the front and if there is speculation around his future it does create doubt in the dressing room.
“Now there’s a better chance of that team succeeding.”
