'Arguably his biggest critic' Garth Crooks now fully convinced by Pogba
- Pogba makes Crooks's Team of the Week.
- He used to slate the Frenchman a lot, notably for his hair.
- Crooks likes that Pogba never 'ducks the big occasion'.
Paul Pogba makes yet another BBC Team of the Week as its compiler Garth Crooks can no longer have anything negative to say about the Frenchman. While some argue Pogba hasn't done enough of late, he's calmly won United another game, a massive 3 points against West Ham.
Crooks wrote on BBC: ''Big moments in games require big players. Paul Pogba assumed the mantle of the big man way before he came to Old Trafford, but since the departure of Jose Mourinho he has convinced me (arguably his biggest critic) that he never ducks the big occasion.
''The two penalty conversions against West Ham got Manchester United out of jail. He may not always produce his best performance but he makes himself accountable.''
Pogba's tally this season is 16 goals and 11 assists in 41 games across each competition. He's been very good at penalties converting 8 attempts out of 9, the missed one being a rebound goal against Everton in October.
