Pogba registered six goals and 12 assists in all competitions for the Red Devils this season.

Despite the statistics, Pogba has received a lot of criticism for some of his performances this campaign, but France and Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris feels he had a good season.

“Paul is no longer a young player," Lloris said, as quoted by the Manchester Evening News.

“He has collected experience with his club and with the national team.

“He has a lot of talent and that label has stuck with him since the beginning. He has had a very good season, although people still debate it. As a football player and as a football fan, I think he had a very good season.

“He has this desire to shine with the French national team. Will he be the ‘boss’? That’s a strong word but a ‘leader’ is what is expected of him on and off the field.

“He is reaching maturity and he wants to do well. But it’s also important that he focuses on his individual performance. This is the best way, to lead by example.”
