Raphael Varane delivers verdict on now Man United teammate Paul Pogba
Raphael Varane has been discussing Paul Pogba in a recent interview.
Varane joins Man United
Varane has, of course, now signed for Manchester United after spending the best part of his career at Real Madrid.
During his time in Spain, Varane was part of an incredibly successful Real side that dominated both in Europe and domestically.
The Frenchman should now be set to dramatically improve Man United’s centre-back options, which up until recently were pretty poor outside of Harry Maguire.
Varane on Pogba
Varane, along with Jadon Sancho, sees Man United, on paper at least, now in possession of one of the best starting line-ups in England.
Even when not at full strength over the weekend, the Red Devils were able to put five past Leeds United.
Paul Pogba would be the star of that game, notching a very impressive four assists on the day.
And now Varane, who is of course already familiar with Pogba due to their national team commitments, has offered up his verdict on the midfielder.
Varane labelled Pogba as a very positive person with good energy who motivates players both in the dressing room and on the pitch:
“I think Paul is very positive and he has a very good energy; he motivates players in the dressing room and on the pitch with his energy.
“We are different but we are very complementary, and it’s important in the team to have different types of leaders and characters.
“I’m very happy. I’ve known him for a very long time, we started together with the French national team and he’s a great player. I think he’s ambitious and me too, so we are ready to work hard and to do all we can to win trophies.”
