France manager Didier Deschamps has praised Paul Pogba for his performances during the international break and is hopeful he can repeat it at Manchester United.

The midfielder faced a mixed start with the Red Devils, claiming he is currently dealing with the most “difficult” period of his career. But with France, he managed to play a key role in the squad’s victories over Portugal and Sweden.

Pogba returns to Old Trafford today, while he will be hoping to feature for the Premier League clash against West Brom at the weekend.

And speaking about the French international, Deschamps said: “Just see what he was able to do in Portugal and what he did tonight.

“I know him, I know how he works. He has pride and above all he has talent. When you have to defend, he can defend.

“When he has the opportunity to express himself, he is able to do so.

“Paul is a top-level player and I hope what he did with us will be useful to him when he gets back to his club.”
