Pogba needs 'time to mature' at Old Trafford - Hugo Lloris


Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has been backed by Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.

Pogba has been criticised for his performances this season, with Jose Mourinho unafraid to drop the club-record signing from his starting line-up.

However France teammate Lloris simply believes Pogba needs 'time to mature' at Old Trafford and the Spurs player even likened his situation with England star Dele Alli's.

Lloris knows both youngsters well and believes the key to them fulfilling their potential is by giving them time to develop and prove their doubters wrong on the pitch.

Speaking after Alli's superb display against Chelsea on Sunday, Lloris defended his club teammate as well as compatriot Pogba.

“The best answer [Alli] could give was on the field on Sunday," the Spurs captain told reporters.
"He is still young but has a big personality. To react in that way is fantastic. It is not easy for him, or for people like Paul Pogba with France, because you need to give time to them to get to the right age, to mature.

“There is a lot of expectation but he stays calm and good in his mind. He came back to training from the national team with a big willingness to show his quality.”
