'Pogba Is Great, But Not Near This EPL Legend!'

Manchester United superstar Paul Pogba "is a great player" but needs to show he can be consistent before he can stand alongside a certain Premier League legend, according to a current EPL manager.

The France international made his return to the Red Devils' first team on the weekend after two months on the sideline due to injury, with United thumping Newcastle United 4-1 at Old Trafford on Saturday.

However, Magpies manager Rafael Benitez feels that Pogba, who scored a goal and assisted another strike on the night, still has a lot to do if he wants to be spoken of in the same breath as Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard.

"They're different," said Benitez following his team's 4-1 defeat.

"Stevie was a top-class player for so many years, and he was very consistent and could make the difference in every game, with or without the ball.

"He was a top-class player. Pogba is a great player, but he still has to be consistent for years like Stevie was for 10 or 15 years.

"Pogba is not my player, so I don't need to talk too much about him. He's a great player, as the majority of the Manchester United players."
