Gigi Buffon: Paul Pogba will be a success Manchester United

by Tanveer Arayan

Juventus captain Gigi Buffon insists Paul Pogba will be a success in the Premier League with Manchester United.

He finalised his transfer from the Italian club earlier this month and made his long-awaited second debut for Man United against Southampton.

Pogba made his £89 million move just four years after being let go on a free transfer and has arrived as Man United’s marquee summer signing.

Speaking about his transfer, Buffon claims Man United have signed a very good player.

“I have no doubts that Paul will be a success in the Premier League,” he said.

“It may take some time to adapt but I’m certain he will do it, especially as he knows the club well which is important.

“I have seen him grow and improve during his time here, especially his attitude on the pitch and the way he works for all the team.

“Manchester United have signed a very good player. It’s not easy to compare him to greats of the past but he has many details of the games of both Platini and Zidane.”

Pogba is a world-class midfielder and one that will inject a certain quality which has been missing from the centre of the park since the retirement of Paul Scholes.

His arrival will also undoubtedly help Jose Mourinho take his side to the next level along with the acquisitions of Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Eric Bailly.
