Pogba ‘can do what he wants while he plays like this’, says Jones

Manchester United star Phil Jones says his team-mate Paul Pogba can be as good as he wants to be.

“He does the talking on the pitch,” Jones told Goal in an exclusive interview.

“Maybe people do that outside of football but don’t really do it on the pitch. He’s earned that right from what he’s done and he can do whatever he wants as long as he performs like he’s doing at the moment.”

“Paul’s Paul,” Jones adds. “When he was at United before he left to go to Juventus I remember how he used to come into training and take the mick out of… well not take the mick but used to run rings around Scholesy and all the players and everyone used to be wowed by him.

“He’s come back and Paul’s Paul, he’s an unbelievably talented player. The things he can do with the ball are incredible, he can see a pass, he’s got a left foot, right foot, his shot, he’s a strong boy, and he can be as good as he wants to be.”

The Red Devils are next in action on Saturday as they look to secure a place in the semi-finals of the FA Cup with a victory over Wolves at Molineux.
