Manchester United superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic has defended his teammate Paul Pogba in style and has said that “jealous people” will regret their words of criticism about Paul Pogba.
The newest acquisition of Manchester United, Paul Pogba, started his new United career on a high note, but he came into criticism after he failed miserably to produce anything concrete in the Derby. Furthermore, Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored the only goal for the Reds and registered his fourth goal in four league matches.
While the players like Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva were dictating the tempo of the game, the former Juventus man struggled to make an impact.
The Swede was quoted by Eurosport as saying: “All the jealous people who talk about him will swallow all of the words they have said about him. He will only improve and will get everyone behind him.”
The £89.3 million signing from Juventus, Paul Pogba, is yet to score a goal and is also yet to bag an assist in the Premier League, but the 34-year-old Swedish sensation has defended the 23-year-old and has stressed that there is room for improvement from the France international, who is still only 23 and wants to develop.
The Swede told SFR Sport: “My relationship with Paul is easy: I speak, he listens. Paul is a player with a lot of talent.
“Now, you have to be realistic: people are putting a lot of pressure on Paul. His transfer created a huge amount of buzz.
“I didn’t know Paul before and, now that I do, I can tell you he’s someone who works enormously. He really wants to improve and he has a super attitude. But you mustn’t forget he’s young. That’s all I can say.”
