Giggs is right; Pogba bigger than we thought

When Ryan Giggs said that “you don’t realise how big he is” we thought ‘nah, he’s not that big’, but then we looked it up and it turns out that he is 6’3″. That’s quite big.

Giggs has been ridiculously dull as part of ITV’s Euro 2016 punditry team – a poor replacement for Slaven Bilic – but he was interesting on Pogba, who he saw at close quarters before Manchester United decided he was simply not worth the effort.

Now – with United reportedly poised to spend £100m on bringing Pogba back to Old Trafford – Giggs has surprised us all with claims of Pogba’s tallness during France’s magnifique win over Iceland.

“He’s a talented player,” Giggs said on ITV. “He can shoot with both feet, pass the ball with both feet and you don’t realise how big he is.

“Physically he’s immense, he’s strong, he’s quick, and he’s got everything. He has got everything.”

To repeat: He has got everything.
