Bryan Robson comments on new Man United signing
Bryan Robson backs Manchester United's signing of Paul Pogba from Juventus
Bryan Robson has hailed Manchester United’s signing of Paul Pogba from Juventus this summer.
The Red Devils finally completed a big-money deal to bring the France midfielder back to Old Trafford in the early hours of Tuesday morning as Jose Mourinho bolstered his squad before the start of the Premier League season.
Pogba’s move back to Old Trafford has raised plenty of eyebrows, considering that the Red Devils let him leave the club for next to nothing back in the summer of 2012.
However, former United star Robson feels that the deal is a good piece of business by the Red Devils as they gear up for Mourinho’s first season in charge at Old Trafford.
Speaking in an interview with MUTV, Robson said: “He’s a terrific player.
“When he was at the club, he showed great ability and he’s got a good attitude. He went to Juventus and has matured, he’s come on as a player, and I think it’s a really good signing.
“If you look at the age of him, 23, we’re buying a young player which is good.
“You have got to go out and buy the best players if you want to compete with the top teams.
“It’s why we’re having a real go this summer and are supporting Jose Mourinho in the market. That’s great to see.”
United finished fifth and won the FA Cup under Louis van Gaal last season.
The Red Devils kick off the new season with a trip to Bournemouth on Sunday afternoon.
