Rio Ferdinand has hailed his former Manchester United teammate Paul Pogba and believes the Juventus and France star would fit into any team in world football.
The former England international, who currently plies his trade for relegation-threatened Queens Park Rangers, feels any manager would be lucky to have Pogba because the 22-year-old midfielder fits every potential philosophy.
After someone on Twitter claimed Ilkay Gundogan was a better fit for Louis van Gaal than either Pogba or Geoffrey Kondogbia, Ferdinand hit back saying: “Pogba fits into any manager’s philosophy”.
Ferdinand was then asked what his first impression was of Pogba, who left Manchester United in 2012 in search of regular first-team football and a better contract.
“Huge potential and confidence off the chart,” the experienced centre-back wrote, before adding: “and humble”.
Pogba wanted by several top clubs
Sir Alex Ferguson’s failure to keep Pogba at Old Trafford is widely considered one of the biggest mistakes - if not the biggest - of his 26-year tenure in charge of the Red Devils.
The in-demand midfielder - who is reportedly wanted by a host of top European clubs including Chelsea, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Arsenal, Manchester City and, of course, United - has developed into one of the world’s best young players and has an exceptionally bright future ahead of him.
It’s understood that Pogba has a preference to join Barcelona, but the Catalan giants are unable to sign him this summer due to their existing transfer ban.
This may open the door for another interested club to secure his services at the end of the season.
