Jesse Lingard believes Paul Pogba remains a well-rounded player at Manchester United and a leader figure, no matter what his critics may think.
Lingard told Sky Sports: “He’s a complete player, the all-round player. He is always positive and off the field he has good energy. He is professional and one of the greatest people that you can know.”
“I grew up with Paul so you could see the technical skills he had at such a young age when he first came in,” he said of the player’s history. “He went on to win the World Cup and many trophies with Juventus.”
“It is difficult for the lads to get him off the ball because he is too powerful. He was the leader-type and always took on the role well,” Lingard said in praise of his leadership qualities. “In the dressing room he is always positive and he picks up the lads when they’re down. That also shows on the field.”
