- The Frenchman looks to be a different players under the Norwegian.
- The 25-year-old has struggled to impress after falling with Jose Mourinho earlier this season.
- And Hasselbaink believes Pogba needs to 'feel loved' in order to thrive.
Speaking about Pogba to Sky Sports, former Premier League striker Hasselbaink said: "He's an exceptional talent, we all know that he can play football really well. But being a talent is not enough you also have to have the character.
"It doesn't matter if you don't get on with your manager you have to do it for yourself and that's what I miss a little bit in him. Obviously he is someone that wants the love of the manager, he wants that kind of relationship, it's all about knowing your characters."

Hasselbaink believes modern managers have to learn a different approach to their players. He added: "Players nowadays are a little bit different to back in the day. You have to talk more now to the players and find a way to motivate them and find a way to get the best out of them, even though at times I don't agree with that.
"But as a manager you have to bite your lip and look at the bigger picture and he [Pogba] is an important factor in Manchester United's team. He is the one that can create something out of nothing so you have to find a way to get the best out of him."
Pogba's future at United is yet to be decided. Italian outlet Tuttosport who have certain ties at Juventus claim Pogba - Douglas Costa swap deal to be a possibility next summer. The Serie A giants remain huge fans of the Frenchman and would love to bring him back to Italy.
