London: Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has hinted that Paul Pogba could make a big impression this season alongside other emerging talent like Tom Cleverley and Danny Welbeck.

The 18-year-old midfielder is already being labelled a young Patrick Vieira.
“He’s a big physical boy. He has a great physique, 6ft 2in, athletic. The new Patrick Vieira? Well he’s the same height. Patrick was a great player, but this boy is only 18. Look at Patrick when he was 18, he was playing centre half for Cannes,”
“He only emerged as a midfield player at AC Milan. But I believe Pogba has the equipment to be successful. Seeing youngsters like him come through helps me, it helps us all. It’s still one of my biggest thrills to see a youngster coming up through the ranks,” he added.
