Manchester Is My Heaven!
In Sir Alex's press conference this morning he was asked about youngsters, aswell as praising Cleverley, Anderson, Fletcher and Carrick, he had this to say about Paul Pogba: "And we’ve got a young boy Pogba who's showing great promise for us. He came on in a couple of games in terms of progress with the youth team, we’re quite positive about him." He was then asked about giving Pogba his chance "I mean if we hold Pogba back, what’s going to happen? He’s going to leave. You know, in a couple of years’ time when his contract is going to finish. So we have to give him the opportunity to see how he can do in the first-team and he’s got great ability, plus he’s got the physique and athleticism."
Hopefully this season will be Pogba's chance to prove what he can do in the first team. Since we bought him from Le Harve he's progressed through the U-18's and Reserves, and helped the Academy win the Youth Cup last season. And was amongst one of the best performers, during the run. He also got a run out in Paul Scholes' testimonial, and looked ready to make the step up.
