Paul Pogba has the potential to be Manchester United captain one day, says club icon Bryan Robson.
“Mourinho will make that decision regarding who’s captain, but once Paul Pogba is settled into the club again, gets used to the Premier League again, as long as he keeps improving, I think he’s captain material,” Robson told Sport Witness.
“I think Paul works really hard at his game. I think he wants to be one of the best, if not the best midfielder in the world, so he’ll keep working at it, keep improving and become a real bright player for Manchester United,” he said.
Pogba has been recovering from an injury but may feature in United’s trip to the Stadium of Light on Sunday to face David Moyes’ Sunderland.
United is fifth in the Premier League table and four points off the Champions League positions.
