Cape Town - Former
Manchester United manager David Moyes does not believe that midfielder
Paul Pogba can make the difference like some of his predecessors.
The Frenchman was the world’s most expensive player until recently,
but struggled to justify his price tag in his first Premier League
"I think he's a top player, [but] I don't know if he's a player who
completely makes a difference for Manchester United," Moyes told ESPN.
"I think that over the years Manchester United have had players like Cantona, even Ryan Giggs, people who are special players.
"I don't know if Pogba's that. I think he's a good player, I think
he'll add to Manchester United, but will he make the difference?
"Is he someone who will score the goal at really important stages in games or make the key pass? I'm not sure about that.
"But I do think that the machine that Manchester United are now, the
size, the players they've got, you know they've got a massive stature to
their team, I think Pogba adds to that.
"And I do think he's a good player, but I'm not quite sure if he'll make the difference in key games."
Jose Mourinho's side begin their English Premiership title assault on the title when they welcome West Ham United to Old Trafford on Sunday.
Kick off is at 17:00.
