The Frenchman, who is in the final year of his contract, provided four assists as the Red Devils recorded a 5-1 victory over Leeds United at Old Trafford last Saturday, becoming only the seventh player in Premier League history to do so.

But Pogba's performances were not enough to convince long-time critic Graeme Souness. The Scot had said after the game that: “we expect that from a £100 million pound man,” while suggesting that Mason Greenwood was United’s star performer in the statement victory.

In the words of Wright: "Graeme Souness cannot contain himself. For him to say ‘why can’t Pogba do that every week?’ No one can do that every week.

“But at the same time, you watch Pogba on a weekly basis, he does enough, for me, in every game to influence a game majorly.

“He was just roaming. Go and play. He’s in his sixth season. Let’s be totally honest, I don’t think I’ve seen him that good.”
