Club shouldn’t have sold Pogba, says Evra

Manchester United left-back Patrice Evra believes the club made a mistake when they allowed Paul Pogba to leave on a free.

The Frenchman left Old Trafford back in 2012 for free and eventually joined Italian side Juventus, where he has become one of the best players in Italy.

There was speculation this summer linking Pogba with a move back to England in order to join Arsenal, but the 20-year-old wanted to stay in Italy.

Current-United player, Patrice Evra, has now revealed that the midfield-man was respected at the club and was even rated by legends Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes.

‘His [Pogba’s] talent on the pitch, his aggression, his presence, is very rare,’ said Evra in an interview with French TV station TF1.

‘He very quickly earned the respect of players like Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes.

‘It’s true that have you have to win over the manager too, but to have won the dressing room like he did [was impressive].

‘It was truly a huge loss when he left the club.’
