Giggs reveals what Man United must do to see a ‘new and improved’ Pogba

Date Posted,June 12, 2017

Ryan Giggs has revealed how Paul Pogba can improve for next season and what Manchester United must do to see a ‘new and improved’ version of the Frenchman.

The Welshman was speaking on ITV prior to England’s friendly against France at the Stade de France, where Pogba started for the hosts.

Pogba’s world record move last summer has received plenty of scrutiny with many critics believing he hasn’t justified his weighty price tag.

However, the 24-year-old did help guide Jose Mourinho’s men to Europa League and League Cup glory last season.

The midfielder also scored nine goals, hitting the crossbar a further nine times, too.

Speaking before the international friendly, Giggs believes he’s pinpointed how Pogba can be even better next season.

“Consistency – because he’s got everything,” said the former Red Devils winger. “He can run box-to-box, he can score goals. He hit the crossbar nine or ten times last season. If he can turn them into goals – there’s another area he needs to improve.

“You never knew what you were going to get from him, but overall I was quite happy with his first season.

“Of course he could have done better, but he’s come from Juventus where they win the league every year.

“He’s [now] in a team which has been inconsistent. If United hit the ground running next season you will see a ‘new and improved Pogba’.”
