Former Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov believes Paul Pogba is unfairly criticised. 

Pogba has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford as Real Madrid and Juventus were interested.

However, Berbatov wants the midfielder to stay at the club next season. 

“I want him to stay at United and I want to see him play alongside [Bruno] Fernandes and the team, if not there will always be a team waiting for Pogba, if that is Real Madrid, Juventus or someone else who knows, but he will fit in anywhere,” Berbatov said. 

“The criticism Pogba gets is unfair and he, like some other players, get criticised just for the sake of it, it doesn’t matter what he does. 

“He is doing everything he can to get fit and when he plays to help his team because I have seen first hand how he used to train with us as a boy, with ambition and the aspiration to be one of the best, so I don’t doubt his work ethic and desire to become even better.”
