'Pogba The Best In The World In His Position'

Paul Pogba has received a lot of criticism in England, but a former Manchester United player told Soccer Laduma in an exclusive interview that he believes the Frenchman is the world's best player in his position.

Pogba has made only seven appearances for United so far this season, with his 2019/20 campaign severely disrupted by injuries.

Reports have linked him with moves to Real Madrid and Juventus, but ex-United goalkeeper Mark Bosnich told Soccer Laduma he believes the Red Devils should keep him at all costs.

"I'm a Pogba fan. A lot of people are going have different opinions than me on that. But, you know, he's an exceptional talent," the Australian said in an exclusive interview in this week's edition of Soccer Laduma, issue 1176.

"When he is playing well, for me, there's no better player than him in his position. And I would do everything in my power to keep him at the club.

"If, for whatever reason, he wanted to leave or his agent made it known that he wanted to leave, that's a different story. But I haven't read or seen that anywhere.

"He's been injured. He's played a lot of football over the past couple of years.

"When you play the World Cup all way to the final, you're talking about pretty much a non-stop season.

"So, a lot of football, and it is understandable that the players break down because they play so much football.

"But if you were to get rid of Paul Pogba, who would you replace him with who is better than him in his position? In his case, I would say no one.

"I would do everything in my power – you've paid a lot of money for him even though he was at the club originally as a young kid – I'd do everything in my power to create the environment where he can flourish."
