Former Arsenal striker, Thierry Henry, has come to the defence of Manchester United midfielder, Paul Pogba, after another average display against Newcastle on Sunday.

United boss Mourinho took Pogba off for the second time in three games, as they lost 1-0 at St James’ Park.

The Frenchman looked furious on the bench as Michael Carrick took his place on the pitch following Matt Ritchie’s goal.

Henry, speaking on Sky Sports, claimed that people expect him to “do wonders”.

“When you have quality, people expect you to do wonders.

“In France people love him, he’s not a holding midfielder. Does he have an impact on the game of a holding midfielder?

“No. Is he N’Golo Kante? No. Pogba has more in his DNA to be up there, to create,” Henry said.
