Former Manchester United captain Bryan Robson praised Paul Pogba but urged patience as he expects more to come from the world's most expensive player.

Pogba made a blockbuster return to United from Italian champions Juventus for an initial £89 million but the France international has struggled for consistency at Old Trafford.

The 24-year-old - who is recovering from a hamstring injury after a heavy workload of 41 matches in all competitions - has divided opinion, earning mixed reviews for his performances.

Robson, however, has been encouraged by what he has seen from Pogba.

"People are looking for him to be really outstanding because of the price tag but it's not as easy as that," Robson told Omnisport.

"I think Paul's done really well in certain parts of the season. He's stepped up to the mark in some big games where United have went on to win them but I think there's still more to come from Paul.

"I think he's still got that little bit more quality which we haven't quite seen yet."

Pogba is set to miss United's hosting of West Brom in the Premier League on Saturday as Jose Mourinho's side look to solidify their top-four charge amid an 18-game unbeaten streak.

United - who won the EFL Cup in February - are fifth in the standings, four points adrift of fourth-placed Liverpool with two matches in hand.

The Manchester club are also in the quarter-finals of the Europa League against Anderlecht under the leadership of Mourinho, who replaced Louis van Gaal in the off-season.

"I think Mourinho overall has done a great job. His signings have been really good," Robson added.

"I think he's gotten used to the players and he knows the best formation for the players. And they're on a very good run at the moment."

Evra hopes the focus is on Pogba's football, not his image .
Former Manchester United defender Patrice Evra has made a plea to the public, insisting that the focus should be predominantly put on Paul Pogba’s football, as opposed to his image. In an interview with FourFourTwo, the ex-United left-back recalled how people looked mainly at blaming how David Beckham played at times on his image and his demeanour, and he hopes that the same doesn’t happen to his compatriot Pogba at Old Trafford. “I don’t want his image coming before his football, and although I’m not worried that will happen, I’m scared other people hope it does so they can criticise him like they did with David Beckham.” Signed for a world-record transfer fee from Juventus in the summer, Pogba has been a mainstay in Jose Mourinho’s team at Manchester United but hasn’t convinced everyone of his value for money just yet. “If he has a bad game, people criticise him for what he does on social media or his haircuts, but he won’t change. He thinks for himself and acts for himself.” Pogba has come under criticism often this season, perhaps undeservedly so, and has been adjusting to life back in Manchester. Evra also spoke of how he had a small hand in getting Pogba back to United, urging the midfielder to return to Old Trafford when heading out of Juve. “I told him that if he was going to leave then he should join United. Juve is a great club and I would have been happy if he’d stayed with us, but I said Man United is a massive opportunity for him.
