Thierry Henry believes that the best is yet to come from Paul Pogba at Manchester United.

The French midfielder arrived at Old Trafford last summer amid much fanfare as the Red Devils smashed the world-record transfer fee to bring him back to the club in an £89m deal.

Pogba has been a regular fixture in the Manchester United team this season but most fans will agree that he has thus far failed to hit top form for Jose Mourinho’s men.

Henry is a huge admirer of Pogba and feels that the midfielder is better suited to a position future up the pitch.

And the Arsenal legend is fully expecting to see Pogba hit top gear at Manchester United next season.

Speaking to Sky Sports News HQ on Monday, former striker Henry said: “It was always going to be difficult for Paul Pogba. They don’t use Pogba where he should be playing – he’s not a holding midfielder. He likes to play higher or off the left.

“You lose a bit of him when he plays deeper. When you have a price tag like his, people are always going to talk. It could be good if someone comes in during the summer with a bigger price tag, then people might leave Pogba alone.

“I think his second season can be better. He’s got much more to offer.”
