Gray has lined up against Pogba on a regular basis down the years and considers him to be the best ever, MySportDab reports.
Paul Pogba remains one of the Premier League’s best, says Andre Gray.
The Watford striker rubbish criticism of a Man United midfielder and he said “no-one can get near” him.
Having returned to Old Trafford in 2016 as part of a record breaking £89 million transfer, big things were expected of a Pogba.
The French international has enjoyed the odd high back in Manchester, while winning World Cup with his country.
Questions of his form and attitude have provided an unwelcome backdrop to efforts on the field.
Injury issues have also been a problem in for the midfielder, with further transfer talk being generated as a result.
It remains to be seen whether there is a role for Pogba in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.
Man United having invested heavily in the likes of Bruno Fernandes and the promise of more spending to come prove more fatal.
Gray is among those who feel that the France playmaker should remain integral to the Red Devils’ plans.
For him, Pogba’s qualities can often be overlooked, with the Frenchman about much more than driving runs and spectacular goals.
“People talk about Pogba and it annoys me,” Gray told Threesixtytv.
“Whenever I’ve played against Pogba, four or five times now, no-one can get near him.
“He might not set the world on fire and score top-corner goals.
But you cannot get near the kid, he’s always somewhere you’re not and you can’t fathom it.
“Until you’re on the pitch with him, you’ll never understand and from the stands it’s like ‘oh, he’s turned him’.
When you play the game and understand the midfield positions, you cannot fathom him.”
Pogba continues to spark transfer talks from Juventus and Real Madrid, has made 143 appearances for United since he moved back to England.
Pogba has failed to add to his tally as he have been sideline with injury before the coronavirus break.
United hope that he will get the chance to right those wrongs when action resumes in the Premier League.
Paul Pogba back to full fitness and “hungry” to start proving himself all over again.
