Paul Pogba could become another Steven Gerrard: Ryan Giggs

London: Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs believes that English football club`s new signing Paul Pogba can become like Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard.

The French midfielder made his debut for the English Premier League giants in their 2-0 win over Southampton in an English Premier League match on Friday.

Pogba played the full 90 minutes in his first United appearance since completing his world-record transfer from Italian club Juventus.

And Giggs, who left his role as the club`s assistant manager before the start of the season, was impressed with what he saw from Pogba and compared his skill set to several Premier League midfield greats.

"He`s a talent. You see the size of him and the physicality of the Premier League won`t be a problem for him. It was interesting seeing that when Thierry asked him about his qualities and he doesn`t actually know his best qualities," Giggs was quoted as saying by Sky Sports on Friday.

"He will bring physicality and he can score goals, running past defenders won`t be a problem for him."

"He could be a Roy Keane, Bryan Robson or Steven Gerrard, someone who can do everything," he added.

Pogba left United to join Juventus in 2012 and he didn`t disappoint on his return, coming close to grabbing a goal in what was an all-action display from the France star.

"Leicester did it last year and won the league. It`s quite simple what they did. You need intelligent players around you and you need to get the balance right. Sometimes you need players to fill in for you but I don`t see why he can`t do that," he added.
