Paul Pogba has lauded Manchester United new boy Raphael Varane, although he has said that his compatriot might need a little time to get settled in at the club.
In an interview with the Manchester United media, Paul Pogba has commented on whether he has been helping Raphael Varane get settled in at the club. The French midfield ace said that his compatriot does not need him to acclimatise at Manchester United, while also hailing him.
Raphael Varane became the third signing of the summer transfer window for Manchester United, who have been on a roll this year. Having already signed Jadon Sancho, the Red Devils have bolstered their defence with a world-class addition.
Yet to make his debut for Manchester United, Varane appears to be slowly getting eased into the thick of action by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
With the Frenchman waiting in the wings, the anticipation surrounding him is growing with every passing day. And Paul Pogba has been full of praise for his compatriot.
Speaking to the Manchester United media, Pogba said, “I think he doesn’t need me to settle in. He just settles in by himself. He is someone very mature, a very good guy. I think you can see he is very good with everyone already. He is really good in the changing room, which is very important in football. He’s a top man, a top player and brings his experience, his quality and his personality, even outside the pitch, to help the team. “
“[What does he bring?] His experience. [It’s] his experience, you know. For a young age, he’s seen it all. He has a lot of experience to give to the team. I think everyone can learn from him. He’s been with the best and played with the best. He saw all the top players and can give his advice, his personality and his experience to the team, like I said.”
Varane’s signing has evoked a myriad of reactions, with some questioning his addition while some others have been elated by it. What now remains to be seen is when Varane gets his Manchester United bow and if he can prove to be a long-term solution to some of their defensive woes.
