Manchester United play Leeds in the League Cup tonight and one of our most promising youngsters will most likely make his first team debut. This talent goes by the name of Paul Pogba.
Paul was born on March 15th 1993, in a French town called Lagny Sur Marne. He played at Le Havre growing up and finally signed for Manchester United in 2009 after some contract controversies. He made his debut 2010 in a U18 game versus Crewe Alexandria but up until that point in his career he had also played his way through every French national youth team and was in fact captain for the U16’s. Paul has great physique, technique, vision and finishing, which makes him perfect as a box-to-box midfielder. Here are some of his best moments in the United-shirt so far:
The latest buzz:
We should definitely not forget that the game tonight is big in itself, because we all hate Leeds scum. But a lot of people, including myself are also looking forward to this game because of Pogba.
Michael Carrick: "Paul is a huge talent. If he goes about things in the right way he is going to have a bright future."
Paddy Crerand (Twitter: @PatCrerand): “Looking forward to United’s trip to Leeds tonight. Best of luck to young Paul Pogba!”
John de Loos (Twitter: @dilynux): With all the hype surrounding Paul Pogba, I really hope he can live up to some people's expectations around here....”
Steve Williams (Twitter: @SteveP_MUFC): “and on the 7th day, God created Paul Pogba's hype.”
Ross Snowdon (Twitter: @kluff09): “Can't wait to watch Paul Pogba make his #MUFC debut tonight. He is going to be a top top player. #fact”
There are also a lot of buzz saying that Burnley boss Eddie Howe wants to take in Pogba on a 6 month loan deal. However Sir Alex has said that he intends to keep Pogba at United for this season and if he is mature enough possibly put him out on loan next season.
I think Pogba might be good enough for the first team next season. Not as a regular starter but as a regular substitute. What do you think?
