The French midfielder was the star of the show as Manchester United came from two goals down to claim a thrilling 3-2 win over Manchester City at The Etihad in the Premier League on Saturday.
Pogba scored two second-half goals to inspire Manchester United towards victory and answer some of his critics.
The midfielder has been regularly criticised for his failure to produce consistent performances for Manchester United this season.
However, he seems to be growing in confidence and his brilliant display against Manchester City has helped to silence some of his critics.
And former Manchester United defender Neville has delivered his verdict on Pogba after his influential display in the Manchester derby on Saturday.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Neville said: “The Manchester United badge carries a large responsibility. Manchester United fans don’t want robots, they want characters, but it’s then demonstrating it on the pitch and doing it consistently.
“He hasn’t done that in the last couple of months, but he is a good lad and a good player and I hope for him and for United that he can start now to affect the biggest matches and win the biggest games.
“That’s what he was brought in to do and today was a big, big turnaround for him. He needed that second half like you wouldn’t believe.”
Pogba will be expecting to feature for Manchester United when the Red Devils return to Premier League action on Sunday with a home clash against West Bromwich Albion.
The Red Devils are still aiming to try and win a trophy this season and will take on Tottenham in the FA Cup semi-finals later this month.
