Watford striker Andre Gray explains why the criticism faced by Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba “annoys” him.
The France international has not played for United since Boxing Day after suffering a setback to foot surgery earlier in the season.
When he was playing Pogba was being criticised for some of his performances following reports that he tried to force through a move to La Liga giants Real Madrid last summer.
There are still rumours that Pogba could leave in the next transfer window but Gray says that the Frenchman would be a valuable asset for any team.
“People talk about Pogba and it annoys me,” Gray told Threesixtytv.
“Whenever I’ve played against Pogba, four or five times now, no-one can get near him.
“He might not set the world on fire and score top-corner goals.
“But you cannot get near the kid – he’s always somewhere you’re not and you can’t fathom it.
“Until you’re on the pitch with him, you’ll never understand. From the stands it’s like ‘oh, he’s turned him’.
“When you play the game and understand the midfield positions, you cannot fathom him.”
